Pierrot Gourtmet - Bastille Day - Wine

Start your evening with the Charcuterie Plate that includes French ham & salami, smoked duck, country pate, pommery mustard, cornichons and baguette. This is the perfect plate to share and enjoy with a glass of French wine. Cheers!

For your next course I recommend the famous French Salad Lyonnaise with poached egg, frisee, lardons, and a champagne vinaigrette. The creamy poached egg is the perfect compliment to the bitter frisee and tangy champagne vinaigrette.

Although I'm a pescatarian the Short Rib Bourguignon with cipollini, confit potatoes and carrots was a highlight of the evening. I loved the Bouchot Mussels with pernod, fennel, fine herbs and country bread. The mussels were extremely fresh and the country bread was perfect for dipping in the delicious broth.

To conclude your escape to France enjoy one (or two) of these sweet treats. The Mousse Chocolat Facon Grand-Mere was my absolute favorite with dark chocolate mousse and vanilla bean ice cream. The Tarte Tatin with caramelized apple tart, puff pastry and creme fraiche or the Flan Parisien with cooked custard tart and caramel sauce are also quite amazing and the best way to end your French meal.
