The Mistral is usually a dry wind in France, and it's arrival almost always clears the skies and dries the air. This effect provides the Mistral a reputation of bringing good health! Indulge at the chef's table at Mistral and enjoy good health in dining. Below is the pairing menu we enjoyed:
  • Oysters on the Half Shell (2 ways) with Blanc de Blanc Champagne
  • Seared Hamachi with radishes, cucumber and arugula with Loire Valley Chenin Blanc
  • Grilled sauteed zucchini terrine, mint and herb coulis with French Rose
  • Seared Foie Gras with young Sauterne
  • Seared Sea Bass with Chateauneuf du Pape
  • Local grilled Lamb (rare) with 2005 Forman Cabernet Sauvignon
  • Cocktail intermezzo (table side preparation)
  • Local artisanal cheeses with Shiraz
  • Two desserts
