thin loaf of French bread made with the addition of
a traditional French Pâte Fermentée starter,
with a crispy, golden crust and soft, chewy interior

PÂTE FERMENTÉE STARTER
– a bread starter that enhances flavor and texture

PROVENÇAL FOUGASSE BREAD
– an artisan bread from the Provence region of France,
it’s flattened, shaped into a long rectangle and scored into
a pattern resembling an ear of wheat then sparsely scattered
with fragrant black olives and fresh herbs or cheese

PROVENCAL ROSEMARY & OLIVE
– we’ll mix kalamata olives and fresh rosemary
into the fougasse bread dough, then proof and shape
into the traditional wheat pattern

ROSEMARY CHICKEN CRÊPES ‘Lunch is Served!’
– ultra thin savory crêpes with irresistible buttery crisp edges,
served with tender char grilled white meat chicken,
fresh rosemary and gruyere cheese filling,
garnished with fresh diced tomatoes

CLASSIC SAVOURY CRÊPES
 – originating in Brittany France in the 13th century, crêpes
‘French-style pancakes’ are a very thin type of batter bread.
We’ll be making a savoury crêpe batter, chilling it in the
refrigerator to enhance the batter’s flavor and more importantly
give the flour a chance to fully hydrate allowing the glutens to
relax and create that wonderfully soft and tender texture!

GRILLED CHICKEN FILLING with GRUYERE
– a creamy crêpe filling of sautéed shallots, garlic
and sliced button mushrooms, deglazed with dry sherry,
then finished with char grilled chicken breast,
shredded gruyere cheese, fresh rosemary
and ribbons of organic baby spinach

THE ART of SMOKING

adds flavor and naturally tenderizes meat. When you master to correctly cook
with smoke & impart that lovely delicate smoky flavor its true barbecue magic!
