July 14 marks Bastille Day, or French National Day, celebrating the beginning of the French Revolution when troops stormed the Bastille. Then, exactly one year later, a new government was established. In Paris, the day is filled with military parades, fireworks and, of course, food. We couldn’t help scouring through our recipe files to find a few dishes perfect for the summer celebration.
