This weekend Laura Calder is cooking up easy, contemporary versions of traditional French comfort foods in French Food at Home. Today at 11:30am ET, Laura cooks up “Cozy” foods but adds some contemporary twists, like Savoury French Toast with herbes de Provence. Laura skips the maple syrup, topping instead with tomato jam – I tracked down a terrific looking recipe from White on Rice Couple.

In Sunday’s episode (11:30am ET), Laura flips through her Grandmother’s cookbooks, handwritten recipes for family gems. Inspired, she dives in, cooking dishes that are “slow, heartwarming and make you feel well-looked-after.” Don’t miss Laura’s savory version of a traditional French tart – a Swiss Chard Tart (pictured in lead), great for using fresh summer greens.
