In anticipation for the upcoming celebration, Jackson’s Steakhouse is proud to present the 14th annual 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:
Cream-style soup with roasted mushroom broth, wild mushrooms and dry sherry sauté, fresh chives paired with Saint-Hilaire Blanquette de Limoux Brut, Languedoc-Roussillon, France NV
Greens salad, golden delicious apples, Roquefort, smoky bacon lardons, French white wine vinaigrette toasted crouton paired with Chateau de Parenchere Bordeaux Blanc Sec, Bordeaux, France 2021
