Food & Ciders of Normandy with Chef Joe Cizynski
During the 1980s, Éric Bordelet was once one of the most influential figures in the Parisian wine scene, as he spent several years at the helm of the wine program at the illustrious Michelin Three Star restaurant of l’Arpège in Paris. However, his native Normandy called him, and he handed over his sommelier duties at l’Arpège and returned to the windswept orchards of Normandy in 1992, desiring to bring his superb palate to bear on the high-powered ciders of the region. We'll be eating oysters au gratin, scallops poached in cider with sorrel, rabbit braised in cider and finish with cheeses. We'll be tasting complimentary Erics' Authentique, Poire Granit, Argelette and Tendre Doux ciders. $65 per person. To register, visit www.cultural-center.org or call 508-394-7100.
