“Vive La France”


A wine and food event presented by La Maison d’Elodie and Jackson’s Steakhouse
Tuesday, July 15, 2014

Jackson’s Steakhouse is proud to once again partner with local wine merchant, Elodie Cardon of La Maison d’Elodie, to present a wine and food tasting, “Vive la France.”

July 14 is the French national holiday, la Fête du 14 juillet, also known as Bastille Day. It commemorates the storming of the Bastille prison in 1789, an act that led to the conclusion of the French Revolution and the beginning of French independence. As the holiday falls on a Monday this year, we are presenting the event Tuesday, July 15, 5:30 p.m., at Jackson’s Steakhouse.

With Bastille Day serving as the inspiration for the tasting, Elodie Cardon (a native of Lyon, France), has hand selected four stellar French wines to complement a selection of French dishes as prepared by Chef Irv Miller. The featured presentation for the evening is as follows:

Premier: Gulf coast crab dip, Belgian endive and heirloom tomato paired with MonmousseauCrémant de Loire,” Rosé, Loire Valley, France, NV
