TODD PRICE TASTE CLUB AT COUVANT
Once upon a time, fine dining in America meant French food. Then chefs began looking across the global for inspiration and making dishes inspired by their creative whims. In recent years, classic French cooking has made a comeback here. Couvant, which will host the next Todd Price Taste Club presented by French Market Coffee on April 9, is part of a new wave of French restaurants in New Orleans.
“We want to show people that we love French food more than anyone else,” said Couvant’s chef Brad McDonald.
For the Taste Club, McDonald and I sat down one afternoon and talked about some of our favorite classic French dishes from recent decades. In the end, he wrote a menu that pays homage to three-star Michelin restaurants and their chefs. McDonald will make the whipped maple syrup egg that starts a meal at Arpège in Paris, salmon and sorrel sauce from Maison Troisgos outside Lyon and a tian of cooked and raw baby vegetable that he learned to prepare in the kitchen of the legendary Alain Ducasse. (See the full menu below).
The dinner includes a welcome cocktail with pass hors d’oeuvres, five courses and two glasses of wine.
For each Taste Clubs, I work with some of my favorite restaurants and chefs to create a one-time meal. We always have fun. I hope you can join us.
See you there!
