[Plates of Prowess]
Show off your enthusiasm and skill in the kitchen with these typically French dishes. Depending on how ready you are to take up the challenge, the Cream of Brie Lentils is almost a one-pot wonder, while the short-cut poultry will require a little more prowess – whichever way you go, that time spent behind the stove will all be worth it.
