Gourmet pour la Gourmand

Pop-Up Paris Bistronomique Dinners
photo 11loirevalley - Gourmet pour la Gourmand I love a pop-up store, a pop-up restaurant or really a pop-up anything. Don’t you? Something about the impermanence of it makes it seem more special.
photo laura - Gourmet pour la GourmandNot long ago I joined a friend and her beau at a Paris-Pop up dinner at the Table Ronde in Paris. Paris Pop is a creation of Laura Vidal (sommelier) and Harry Cummins (chef) who met each other at Frenchie (still the hottest and most difficult restaurant to get into in Paris).

Pop-Up Paris has been welcome in Montreal, New York, California, Kyoto, Quebec City, Fez, Barcelona and London. Next locales include; Marrakesh from May 16-21st and June 18 through the 29th of August you can find them in residency at the Grand Hotel in Arles, France.

I will be on a flight to check it out shortly after the doors open you can bet on that.

The night we went we enjoyed a wine tasting of Loire Valley wines curated by Ms. Vidal accompanying a variety of fish dishes, pork with truffles in a heavenly broth and a smoked steak to finish it all off which was out of this world. The food was quite simply perfection. I’d expect nothing else though from a graduate of Frenchie.
steak - Gourmet pour la GourmandThe wines were very interesting, not what you normally expect from the Loire. Some were a bit too odd for my liking. Natural wines are hit or miss for me, but I did enjoy sampling such a variety from just one region. It’s a great idea to focus on one area, which allows you to taste and experience how much wealth and variety there can be in just one tiny pocket of France.
