ooh la la! let's have a fabulous French dinner and dream that we are dining in a rustic restaurant nestled in the French countryside.. or a fancy one in the heart of Paris!
Our menu for the evening:
- Roasted Artichokes with Aioli Sauce- yes we will learn how to clean and prepare those devils, and make our own Aioli.
- Seafood Crepes with Sauce Parisienne- So delicious - we will make the crepes and then fill with a Shrimp/Scallop mixture tossed with our Sauce Parisienne.
-Pan Seared Breast of Duck with Roasted Grapes and Gastrique- crispy seared duck breast - the roasted grapes and gastrique provide a perfect balance to the duck in this lovely main dish.
-Steamed Haricot Verte with Herb Butter
-Bittersweet Chocolate Souflees with Orange Sauce - this version shared by Jacque Pepin is super easy and provides the ultimate finish to our French themed feast.
