Large (15-20 Guests)
Vegan, Vegetarian
This dinner involves a lot of (mostly) French dishes to make a fantastic meal! We'll have our signature burrata served in endive with radishes and saffron oil, a French onion soup, a warm pear salad with charred citrus, cultured cashew blue cheese, and toasted walnuts, a trumpet mushroom 'bourguignon', a violet (like the flower) cheesecake with a date walnut crust, AND a croissant for you to take home with you! (or not). Not quite French, but French Nouveau! Come join us...

Menu detail

Cashew Burrata served in Endive with Radish and Saffron
We'll serve our cashew burrata in Belgian endive, topped with finely diced radishes, sea salt, saffron oil, and herbs.
French Onion Soup
Small Plate
Onions slowly caramelized for 5 hours, deglazed with Champagne, and then cooked with an umami rich broth made from kombu and shiitakes. Topped with a crust of bread and melted cashew cheese. We've fed this to omnivores, who swore up and down, it tastes just the same as a French onion soup you'd find in a French brasserie.
Warm Pear Salad: Charred Citrus, Cultured Cashew Blue Cheese, Lettuces, Walnuts
Small Plate
We'll serve warm pears, toasted walnuts, zesty cashew blue cheese with lettuces and a tarragon vinaigrette.
Trumpet Mushroom Sausage Bourguignon
This is a classic French dish we're going to veganize just for you. We'll use a red wine reduction sauce with mirepoix and garlic to braise trumpet mushrooms, and serve it with herb braised potatoes, carrots, button mushrooms, and pearl onions to make a very refined, veganized, classic French dish dotted with smoky eggplant bacon and fresh herbs.
Violet Cheesecake Tart with Basil and Dried Raspberry Crumble
We'll make a delicious floral cashew cheesecake using violet extract, a walnut-date crust, and top it with basil and dried raspberry crumble.
You'll get to take home one of our freshly made croissants!
