It’s Bastille Day. You Want To Go On A Picnic. Now What?
The French Revolution began with one infamous act – the storming of the Bastille. The historic revolt at the Parisian prison sparked the chain of events that dissolved the French monarchy and led to the evolution of the French republic. In France, “La Fête Nationale,” (national holiday) is celebrated with parades, dances, parties, fireworks and, of course, food. On “le quatorze juillet” (July 14th), the French and Francophiles the world over celebrate freedom by taking the party outside and picnicking - anywhere and everywhere. Others attempt their favorite French treats in their own kitchens at home - and others still - leave the cooking and the wine pairing to professionals and hit up their favorite French restaurants. Whatever your “plaisir” (pleasure) - we’ve got you covered, with Chris Campbell. Chris is a sommalier and part owner of Troquet, located on Boyston St. right off the Boston Common. This classic French-inspired restaurant has been named one of Wine Enthusiast's Top 100 Wine Restaurants in the nation.
