For the 12th year, Jackson’s Steakhouse is proud to once again present a wine and food tasting, “Vive la France,” on Thursday, July 14, 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:
Savory leek tartelette with tomato, fresh thyme, baked gruyere cheese custard paired with Henri Champliau Petrone 68 Brut Blanc des Blancs, Bourgogne, NV
Summer squash gratin, Boursin and Montrachet goat cheese, basil crumb paired with Figuiere Mediterranee Rose, Provence, 2021
Smoked bacon belly confit with roasted wild mushrooms sauté, rice pilaf with petit pois and spearmint paired with Closerie de Lys Pinot Noir, Languedoc, 2019
Beef tournedos, demi-glace, crispy artichokes, parsley potatoes, glazed rainbow carrots paired with Chateau Pesquie ‘Les Terrasses’ Rouge, Rhone, 2019
Poached pear “Belle Helene” Anjou pear, vanilla bean ice cream, chocolate sauce
