This quaint menu recalls the bistros, tiny cafe tables, and cobblestone streets of Paris.

Enjoy an elegant meal inspired by Parisian bistro cuisine and hand-prepared by professional Chef Charles. Begin with an endive and poached pear salad, a perfect complement of bitter greens with sweet fruit. Pan-roasted Brussels sprouts with a honey glaze adds a green vegetable touch to the meal, which centers on peppery steak au poivre paired with creamy and decadent potatoes Dauphinoise, a classic dish that has been a Parisian bistro mainstay for centuries. Chocolate pots de crème topped with Chantilly lace cream finishes off your elegant meal.

Guests are welcome to provide wine and beer to accompany the menu, and may request pairing recommendations from the chef upon booking.

The whole evening with Chef Charles was lots of fun. Even though we are all experienced and adventurous home cooks we learned some great techniques and had a great time chatting and cooking with Charles. Oh, and the food was good too!

Chef Charles was a wonderful host! He started with an insightful explanation for the meal's theme and the cultural nuances of Southern Italy. He was very accommodating in answering all our questions about the meal and cooking techniques that he used. It was a very immersive learning experience. Most of all, the food was amazing! It was a wonderful pairing of flavors and restaurant-quality meal from the comfort of our home. Highly recommend Chef Charles.
