Rustic French cooking lies deep at the heart of continental cuisine; much of the heritage of fine European cooking can find its roots in the traditional ingredients of the French countryside: beef, aromatic vegetables, herbs, butter and wine. Join Chef Dali Chehimi for an elegant dinner of soul-warming classics from the French country kitchen, including authentic boeuf bourguignon, the dish Julia Child once called “certainly one of the most delicious beef dishes concocted by man”.
Tender squid in a tomatoes sauce with capers, black olives & chickpeas, infused with garlic, herbs de provence and a touch of chili, served with warm baguette.
A simple salad of tender butter lettuce with a classic French wine vinegar vinaigrette.
One of the true classics of French cuisine, this refined stew from Burgundy features large pieces of tender beef braised in that region’s famous red wine, along with mushrooms, carrots and small pearl onions. Served with roast garlic potato puree.
One of the classics of the French kitchen — caramelized sugar, milk, and eggs, transformed with patience and skill into a truly magical dessert — a delicate golden-topped custard in pool of glorious caramel sauce.
A veteran Toronto restaurateur, Dali Chehimi’s storied career has seen him working alongside luminary chefs like Greg Couillard at iconic restaurants such as Sassafraz, Sarkis and Avec, as well as running Casbah, an innovative pop-up food stall specializing in Tunisian fare.
