"Vive La France"
A wine and food event presented by La Maison d'Elodie and Jackson's Steakhouse
Jackson's Steakhouse is proud to partner with local wine merchant, Elodie Cardon of La Maison d'Elodie, to present a wine and food tasting, "Viva la France," Saturday, July 14, 5:00 p.m., at Jackson's Steakhouse.
July 14 is the French national holiday, la Fête du 14 juillet, also known as Bastille Day. 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, Elodie Cardon (a native of Lyon, France), 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:
Premier: Dijon and herbs de provence seared tuna served on rusk toast, with toasted pine nut aïoli, tomato-basil syrup and petit merlot micro greens along with Montrachet goat cheese with grilled asparagus relish and Rosette de Lyon salami paired with Monmousseau Touraine Cuvee JM Rose Brut, Loire Valley, France, NV
