Tapas Night: French Winter Delights

French Regional Winter Delights

 With winter coming on, join us at Donderos’ for cold weather specialties from different parts of France. We will serve our tapas the second Thursday of December rather than the first, since the Athens pre-Christmas parade is the first Thursday.

Our fixed-menu, fixed-price “tapas” evening will feature six varied “small dishes” from Alsace, Burgundy, Provence, Savoie, and the Auvergne. Tim will discuss the dishes and their backgrounds as they are served. You bring your wine of choice.

Menu: House-made charcuterie; “Black lentil” salad; “Pumpkin” (butternut) gratin; Coq au Riesling (Alsatian version of Coq au Vin) with noodles; Pommes savoyarde (potatoes scalloped with chicken broth and “Swiss” cheese); Selection of French cheeses.

Tim’s recommended wines for this collection of dishes would be a light-bodied red, such as a Pinot Noir or Beaujolais (both slightly chilled, ideally). For a white, a well-chilled Viognier or unoaked Chardonnay

Or -- for a great wine pairing at a modest price, check at the Uncommon Gourmet (previously, “Healthy Gourmet”), 1087 Baxter St., telephone 706 353-3107. Dave Wells and Tim have frequently taught cooking and wine classes there, and Dave selects wines to go with Tim’s style of cooking.
