This week we visited the fantastic cuisine of Flavours of France with a new Taste of France – Take Home Family Meal. From classic French dishes such as nicoise salad and chicken chasseur! It’s a 3 course meal for your family available every Wednesday – Sunday. This meal was available the week of July 22-26 to hungry (and busy!) Haligonians and delivered to homes from Fresh on the Fly!
Classic French Dishes sure to be enjoyed by the whole family!
A great selection from this weeks Taste of France – Take Home Family Meal! Sliced baguette with spreadable parsley aioli, perfect to snack on while your meal heats up! For an appetizer we did a classic Salade niçoise with seared rare tuna and provençal vinaigrette. The main event was roasted Chicken chasseur. Complemented with sides of roasted Brussels Sprouts, vichy style carrots and Lyonnais style potatoes. For dessert we made a decadent chocolate pot de crème pudding with sliced strawberries.

Recommended wine pairing: If you’re going to eat French, drink French!
by Sommelier Danielle McLean
Keep it simple when pairing wine with an Old World theme by sourcing the wine directly from the regional inspiration of you dinner! Pizza and pasta taste best with Chianti. Grilled beef is amazing with Argentine malbec. And classic French food loves classic wines from France. Below are some of my favorite affordable and approachable white, red and rosé wines currently available at the NSLC (and under $25!).
