If you love food, and we certainly do, you really must at some point consider the tremendous contribution to the world of dining that the French have made, and what better day to do it than Bastille Day? On Wednesday, July 14, we’ll be serving a handful of classic French dishes to celebrate the Fête nationale, and removing the built-in corkage from all of our French wines for the day.
Tartare de filet de boeuf~ minced raw beef tenderloin with capers, shallot and parsley. Served with toast points, Dijon mustard and cornichons.
Sole á la Meuniere~ Dover sole, dusted in flour and sautéed. Served with a lemon, wine and butter sauce, turned potatoes and asparagus.
Cassoulet~ traditional southern French ragout of white beans, sausage and duck confit. Garnished with breadcrumbs.
Bouillabaisse~ classic tomato-saffron soup with mussels, shrimp, scallops, half a Maine lobster and sea bass. Garnished with toast points and rouille.
Clafoutis au cerises~ custard cake studded with cherries (contains pits!)
