Paris Grocery Seattle

September 18, 2014

Bonjour Les Amis,

If I didn’t already say it, August was the most successful month Paris Grocery has had in the 5 years we’ve been open–THANK YOU!!!!!That means I can keep bringing in even more great, hard-to-find products for you. With autumn in the air, it’s got me to thinking about Cassoulet, Tartiflette, Tarte Tatin. What are your favorite fall dishes? Check out our mention in Seattle Magazine. Feeling very proud!

A Bientot,
Catherine 

 

BUILDING A VERY FRENCH REUBEN

This week the owner of La Belle Farms was in town, & that means I was forced to taste some outstanding duck products. This small farm in upstate NY actually grows their own grain for feed which sets them apart.

One taste of their duck pastrami & I knew we needed to carry it. So here’s what you need to make a tres Francais Reuben:

La Belle Duck Pastrami
Andre Laurent Couer de Chou (Gourmet Style Sauerkraut)
Comte
Delice de Luberon Aioli

FRENCH BEER TO GO WITH A FRENCH REUBEN

Gavroche $4.99 bottle
Apparently Gavroche was a generous and rebellious Paris urchin and a character in the Victor Hugo (1802-1885) novel “Les Misérables.” Think Farmhouse ale… A guy who lived in France was literally just in buying a bottle. I said, “How would you describe it?” His response “Delightful!”

Villa Bleu Lavender Gouda $22.99 lb

Ok, so I was not expecting this to actually be blue but it is! A delicious gouda infused with lavender. A total conversation piece!

 

 

 

Prefere des nos Montagnes $16.49 whole, $8.25 half wheel 
As you know, Reblochon is sadly banned from the US. And even Murray’s agrees this is the closest thing we can get. Extremely buttery & perfect for making Tartiflette. Enjoy!

 

 

Steibrs Farms Farmer Jon’s Valley Pride Duck Eggs $10.99 dozen
Totally natural, from Yelm, WA. Duck eggs are renowned for making baked good fluffier. I want to try making this spicy Duckonnaise.

Manchester Farms Quail Eggs $7.99 15 eggs
From Columbia, SC… Try making Mini Quail Scotch Eggs!
