Our Menu:

Classic Gougeres - Savory little puffs of choux pastry mixed with cheese served all over France with a glass of wine a perfect start!


Pan Bagnat- Le French Tuna Salad Sandwich! - A sandwich version of Salad Nicoise, with tuna, olives, fresh herbs, etc all stuffed into a hollowed out crusty baguette, weighted down and refrigerated for perfect slicing. The ulitmate picnic sandwich.


Pissladiere- Similar to pizza, this uses a bed of sweet caramelized onions and a pattern of anchovy fillets and nicoise olives for the topping - a perfect food for portable feasting!


Croque Monsieur - A French grilled ham and cheese sandwich but with a Mornay Sauce that takes it over the top - simply wrap in parchment when taken out of the oven, and sit back and enjoy the crunchy exterior and the warm and gooey insides - totally yummy.


Plum Clafoutis - Not too sweet, nice and custardy and a stellar platform to showcase the beautiful stone fruits of the season.


Madeleines-Little puffy cookie cakes, that require their own scallop-shaped baking pan! Light, and flavored with orange or lemon zest, they will melt in your mouth and will provide a delcious sweet finish to our picnic. Great served with some seasonal fresh fruit or an assortment of well-selected cheeses.
