Another fantastic Wine Dinner at Le Cafe de Paris. Here is how Mathieu described the dinner. It was awesome!

“French Region Night this month will feature the region of Burgundy, where I was born and raised! We have recently acquired several new wine labels from the area and a fabulous four course menu of classic cuisine from the area with be featured! The dinner itself is $39/person and as always we will have our resident sommelier, Christian Lamotte, there to pair our fabulous wines.”

Here is the wine we had with dinner. A 2007 Pernand-Vergelesses. It went very well with our dinner.

Some folks who were at the same table as ours. Mr Quinlin (right) and friends. Great conversation and thanks for sharing the wine!

Escargot Bogon et Gougeres
(Burgundy Snails)
burgundy butter with pastis

Salade Paysanne
(Burgundy Country Salad)
field greens, croutons, bacon lardons, ozark poached egg

I tried to get a photo of the egg prep. It did not come out. They break the egg in cheese cloth and then tie it up so it keeps it shape. They cook it in the cheese cloth.

Sandre en Papillote
walleye filet with aromatics baked in parchment, rice pilaf, braised brussel sprouts

Note: We had never had Walleye before. It was delicious! Mild and slightly sweet. Not a strong “fishy” taste. I’d have it again.

Coq au Vin
(Red Wine Chicken)
housemade taggliatelle, braised brussel sprouts

Île Flottante
(Floating Island)
poached meringue, crème anglaise, almonds
