IT’S NATIONAL COQ AU VIN DAY!
Another French cuisine holiday doesn’t faze us at all. We’re in it to win it. This time we chowed down at Patrick’s Bakery in Edina/Richfield and it was terrific. This place is an amazing bistro with an unbelievable bakery. And since we didn’t get enough French food at Salut last Tuesday, we wanted to get something different.
Coq Au Vin is one of those important standards. It’s also one which helped solidify the popularity of Julia Child as one of her breakout recipes in 1961. The dish is more than just chicken/hen and red wine. We’re talking mushrooms, bacon, and all the fixings. No more paragraphs. Pictures of our dinner:
Tomorrow is National Mint Julep Day!
