TODD PRICE TASTE CLUB, PRESENTED BY FRENCH MARKET COFFEE

Can’t swing a trip to the Mediterranean this summer? We have the next best thing. On July 25, Todd Price Taste Club will bring you the flavors of Southern France when Effervescence prepares a Provençal feast.

“It’s hot and coastal there, and it’s hot and coastal here. And we both have great seafood,” said Evan Ingram, who is the co-chef at Effervescence along with Brenna Sanders.

The four-course menu, plus hors d’oeuvres, includes fried eggplant with spicy harissa, royal red shrimp with aioli, a bouillabaisse brimming with Gulf seafood and pastry filled with Alabama peaches and hazelnut cream. (See the full menu below, which may require that you break out a French-to-English dictionary.)

Effervescence is an elegant restaurant and bar on N. Rampart Street dedicated to sparkling wine. It opened in 2017, and made our list of best new bars that year. The food from Ingram and Sanders has always been inspired by the Mediterranean, and the chefs have traveled throughout the region.

For the Taste Clubs, I invite some of my favorite local chefs to create unique menus. The dinners are always lively and fun. Tickets are limited. We hope you can join us.

See you there!
