Private Chef - Best Bistro Bites

Delve into the bounty of Spring with French flare thanks to this bistro-inspired menu.

Savor a quintessential French menu that embodies Springtime with this private chef experience from Chef Benoit. Classic bistro dishes get a high-end makeover, starting with a sweet and creamy velouté of peas, topped with St Agur cheese, walnut pesto and baguette croutons. Perfectly seared duck breast is a hallmark of French cooking and is complemented with a sweet and sour honey sauce with notes of star anise alongside a showstopping pomme darphin, a giant pancake of seasoned, hash-browned potatoes. End the meal with a delicate strawberry and creamy meringue concoction.

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

A truly great experience! Chef Benoit was a wonderful teacher, I’m an avid cook and he still had so much to teach. His home was beautiful and we made food I can’t wait to try to make again. Highly recommend taking advantage of this opportunity.
