French Recipes To Celebrate Bastille Day (PHOTOS)

Posted: Updated:

Every July 14, Bastille Day is celebrated in France and around the world. Known as La Fête Nationale, the holiday commemorates the storming of the French fortress and prison know as the Bastille -- what followed was the French Revolution, which led to many political changes including the abolishing of monarchy (think Marie Antoinette).

A day like Bastille Day is the perfect opportunity to celebrate everything French, and what better way to do just that than with French food? You don't have to go all the way to Paris to celebrate (though watching the military parade down the Champs Elysees is pretty cool). Break out a bottle of Champagne and enjoy one of the classic recipes in the slideshow below. All of them can be made at home -- but we won't judge you if you decide to buy your croissants instead of making them from scratch.
