Bistrot La Minette’s Chef Peter Woolsey is determined to take you on a culinary journey through France. That’s why almost every month he creates an authentic dinner featuring a multi-course feast from different regions.
February’s dinner will be held on Wednesday and Thursday, February 24 and 25. It will feature the savory foods of Périgord, a region known for its truffles and foie gras. The chef finds particular inspiration for this menu from Paula Wolfert and her cookbook “Cooking of Southwest France,” which is an homage to the area’s culinary traditions.
This four-course prix-fix dinner costs $35, or $50 with complimentary wines.
Here is the menu:
Terrine de Foie Gras
Duck liver terrine, house-made brioche, fig compote
St. Jaques Poêlé aux Truffes Noirs et Noix
Pan seared scallops, black truffle oil, walnuts, frisée, walnut vinaigrette
Magret de Canard aux Pruneaux
Seared duck breast, prune sauce, confit potatoes
Pompe aux Pommes
Puff pastry, apples and almonds
