Oh, to be en France for the festive season; a place where lunch is a near-religion and the savouring of robust, seasonal flavours is always de rigeur.
This menu from Nicolas Kleist at Bouchon – the award-winning French-owned bistro in Hexham – features a starter, main course and dessert, plus a starter or aperitif sharing board of baked Mont D’Or and an especially festive Champagne palate cleanser to enjoy between your main course and dessert. For this menu, goose is the order of the day. Bon appetit!
