Roasted chicken with potatoes is the traditional Sunday lunch in France, whether you buy it already roasted at the local farmers market or you make it at home. There are several recipes, but my favorite includes whole garlic cloves roasted with the chicken. When you eat the chicken you crush the roasted cloves on the meat. It’s unbelievably good.
What to drink: Pretty much any red wine goes with that one.
For dessert: Another French classic, the religieuse — pastry cream, chocolate ganache and whipped cream.
