I've been going to Chez Francois for years. I've also been attending Chef Jacques's cooking demonstrations for years. My friend and I recently attended the Alsatian Winter Cooking Demonstration. When we arrived between 10:30 and 11:00 am, and were offered a glass of Schlumberger Pinot Blanc d'Alsace while watching Chef Jacque demonstrate the preparation of the dishes we would have for lunch. Our glasses were refilled throughout the demonstration. Once in the dining room, we were treated to a first course of Onions in Puff Pastry accompanied by a Schlumberger Riesling d'Alsace. Next we had a Gruyere Cheese Salad accompanied by the Riesling. A Mirabelle (Plum) sorbet was served before the main course. A delicious Choucroute Garnie with smoked bacon, pork shoulder, bratwurst, frankfurters, kielbasa, sauerkraut and apples was served with a Woelfefin Gewurztraminer d'Alsace. For dessert we had Kugelhopf en Neige, a baked meringue with raisins and kirsch. The demonstrations are always entertaining, as Chef Jacque is very entertaining.
