It’s your change to celebrate France with a gourmet dinner that highlights the inequality between the peasants and the kings that brought on the French Revolution. This will be done through the juxtaposition of French country cooking and haut cuisine. Each dish will be perfectly paired with two small glasses of wine (one humble and one luxury) selected by our Wine Manager Austin Beeman.
Here’s the menu (wine pairings to be announced):
1. Galantine of Duck / Chilled Watercress Soup
2. Trout Meuniere / Coquilles St. Jacques
3. Poulet Chasseur / Quail Périgord Stuffed with Chantrelles
4. Seared Steak with Herb Butter / Beef Tenderloin Roulade
5. “Let Us Eat Cake!”
