“Vive la France”
A wine and food event presented by Jackson’s Steakhouse
For the 8th year, Jackson’s Steakhouse is proud to once again present a wine and food tasting, “Vive la France,” on Thursday, July 13, at 5:30 p.m.
Bastille Day is the French national holiday, la Fête du 14 juillet. 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.
With Bastille Day serving as the inspiration for the tasting, our own Jean Pierre N’Dione has hand selected four stellar French wines to complement a selection of classic French dishes as prepared by Chef Irv Miller. The featured presentation for the evening is as follows:
Gulf oyster turnover with champagne butter sauce filled with leeks, mustard greens, La Bonne Vie goat cheese Brie paired with Domaine Hubert Brochard, Sancerre Aujourd’hui Comme Autre, Loire Valley, France, 2015
Local heirloom tomatoes and summer squash slaw with French tarragon vinaigrette and Bill-E’s lardons paired with Domaine Chanzy, Mercurey 1er Cru Clos du Roy Blanc, Burgundy, France, 2014
Smoked duck breast noisette, satsuma-brined, pecan rice pilaf, sautéed spinach, pan reduction sauce paired with Marchand-Tawse, Marsannay, Burgundy, France, 2014
Grilled lamb chop au poivre with roasted local vegetable ratatouille, garlic whipped potatoes paired with Chateau de Saint Cosme, Gigondas, Rhone, France, 2014
Baked apple tartelette with apricot glaze and cream Chantilly
