Our final prix-fixe event for the year is something special and very personal for me: “Pilgrimage to Provence” will present dishes similar to those I discovered with 24 other travel mates during a 10-day wine, food and art tour of the south of France in early October. Chef Alexander has sampled Provence in person, so the menu will be a mash-up of our combined experiences.
Pilgrimage to Provence is set for November 17 to 22, starting at 5 p.m. each evening. The program is four courses, with choices–10 dishes in all–for $59.95 pp++. Don’t risk this event selling out early; call 530-823-308 to make reservations now, or go to www.opentable.com.
This is the second international tour I have led, and as with our trip to Spain in 2013, the follow-up prix-fixe will also feature wines that we encountered on the road. Our group visited nine wineries and we enjoyed local wines at dinners and lunches along the way. The best of these–including killer wines from Chateauneuf du Pape and Gigondas, will be available for purchase and open for tasting.
Next week look for the complete Pilgrimage to Provence menu and an overview of the Provence tour in Window on Old Town. We’ll be hosting a trip to Tuscany next year, and this just may whet your appetite.
