Garbure béarnaise has a lot of versions, this French filled vegetable soup with duck is a classic version of the Southwest. Needs some time, but so worth it
Bearnaise sauce is amazing with beef, but also with roasted vegetables like green asparagus. The technique is the same as for Hollandaise sauce, starting with a gastrique and made silky smooth with egg yolks and clarified butter.
One of our favorite French baked goods is puff pastry with strawberries. Best known as strawberry eclairs, old school goodness!
