Meet the Makers Dinner Series “Les Bordeaux” & Romain’s famous Diner de Canard “The Périgord Duck Dinner”
On Thursday 25th May 2017, Lutèce, Romain Bapst & Chef de Cuisine Qian Cao are celebrating a 4 course Duck dinner from the Perigord region & matching Bordeaux wines.
The major reason for the success of winemaking in the Bordeaux region is an excellent environment for growing vines. The geological foundation of the region is limestone, leading to a soil structure that is heavy in calcium. The Gironde estuary dominates the regions along with its tributaries, the Garonne and the Dordogne rivers, and together irrigate the land and provide an Atlantic Climate, also known as an oceanic climate, for the region.
These rivers define the main geographical subdivisions of the region:
• “The right bank”, situated on the right bank of Dordogne, in the northern parts of the region, around the city of Libourne.
• Entre-Deux-Mers, French for “between two seas”, the area between the rivers Dordogne and Garonne, both of which are tidal, in the centre of the region.
• “The left bank”, situated on the left bank of Garonne, in the west and south of the region, around the city of Bordeaux itself. The left bank is further subdivided into:
• Graves, the area upstream of the city Bordeaux.
• Médoc, the area downstream of the city Bordeaux, situated on a peninsula between Gironde and the Atlantic.
Here’s just a taste of what is in store for the night by chef Bapst & Chef de cuisine Qian Cao; Duck confit, white beans & old vinegar Terrine “persillée”, Duck « Royale », sau- téed Western Australian scampi & artichoke Braised, the chargrilled Duck “breast, Poached Gala apple with Sauternes & vanilla bean “Crème caramel”
