Recession Dinner “Local” French (4/7) at JUJUBE in Chapel Hill
Recession Dinner “Local” French Wines
Thursday, April 7th, 2011
7pm - $40 does not include tax or gratuity
OK, what do I mean by “local” French wines? Now, this may be a bit of a stretch, but the importer is right next door in Carrboro. Authentic Vin Thomas Meunier, who specializes in sustainably produced, family-owned wines from France. So, in other words, besides the fact that the importer lives and works right here, there are a number of values very consistent with the rationale to support local products.
His wife, Elizabeth, is also very much entrenched in the local community, as she owns Open Eye Café of Carrboro. So, there’s more home-cooking for you.
Oh, and did I mention, the wines themselves are really delicious? Because they are. We’ve featured the delicious Miquel Chardonnay/Viognier blend before and it got rave reviews. The rest are every bit as tasty and I think we’ve done a fine job of coming up with some tasty dishes. “Kung Pao Chicken” refers to a new-fangled re-construction of the dish. This is a dish that we like to have some fun with, and the results are always pretty tasty.
As always with the Recession dinners, the cost is only $40. We’ll see you on the 7th.
