Viva la France

Wednesday was Bastille Day, so I'm thinking in french, well culinary french. There has been a resurgence of French cuisine in recent years. I think people have had enough of modern eclectic cuisine and are getting back to basics. French cuisine is full of technique and time. For a trained chef in so many ways it is back to the basics.

Even with the heat that we had I was inspired to create my own French menu for the evening:

Toasted Croustini with Champignon and Brie
with a Mesculan salad mix & Sherry Vinaigrette

Sauté of Chicken Livers with Bacon and Onions
served on Pomme Puree

I started off to make Chocolate Soufflés but the heat won out over the oven and Hubby enjoyed a rich bowl of Chocolate Pudding (aka soufflé base)

If you are looking for a nice French meal out check out K&L’s Bistro in Sebastopol - one of my favorites.
