A Summertime Taste of France

As the wind-blown heat of summer releases its final breath, and we turn our attention past dusty roads and drying hay, Castle Falls invites everyone on Wednesday the 31st, the last day of August, for “A Summertime Taste of France.” This evening will feature five different French wines and a four-course meal inspired by the culinary flavors of France. Together we will dine on the Primrose level of the Castle, built in 1945 and modeled after the Chateaux de Normandie, partnering the culinary and architectural character of France for our evening together.

For the reception we will enjoy a Veuve Du Vernay Brut, then our meal will begin with vichyssois, a traditional chilled potato and leek soup, and a Gerard Bertrand Cote Du Rose White wine. Next we will enjoy a grilled peach and toasted pecan salad with goat cheese and a citrus-champagne vinaigrette partnered with Lurton Bonnet White wine. Our entrée course will be a cider braised pork with whipped sweet potatoes, caramelized apples and a mustard-red wine jus to accompany a Thomas Barton Reserve Bordeaux.  We will finish the evening by enjoying a dark chocolate torte with candied dates and a raspberry coulis and drinking a Barton and Guestier Bistro Pinot Noir. 

These wine dinners are specially planned and prepared by Chef Dave and each one reflects his creativity and culinary prowess while being filled with a fun atmosphere, great people, and good wine. The wine and dinner will be $50 per person, plus tax and gratuity. Call 405-942-6133 for reservations.
