Our French Dinner - was so lovely ! For the decor we found a gorgeous vintage wallpaper to line the tabletop. We wanted a more dramatic take on a french countryside evening. We added tall candlesticks, flowers from Saipua...vintage silverware...and voila !
We had an amazing wine pairing with each course from Pour Wines. Casey served a refreshing mint water and a small bite of french bread with a baked herb goat cheese and a burnt fig spread as a starter. And for dinner...moules marinieres, grilled skirt steak au poivre- parsnip puree, braised fennel and tomato. The cherry on top...a bittersweet chocolate and orange pot de crème with almond cream. mmmm. makes our mouth water all over again!
