Le Blaireau Bar & Bistrot in New Forest resort Careys Manor & SenSpa has announced a ‘Brexit-free’ zone this summer, to include Bastille Day celebrations and monthly seasonal menus celebrating regional French cuisine.
Head chef Jean-Raymond Dijoux will mark Bastille Day (14 July) with a three-course menu, to be accompanied by a traditional French accordionist for under £30 per guest.
This month, the Nouvelle Aquitaine region is in focus with a seasonal menu, to be followed in August by Région d’Occitanie.
The changing dishes on the regional menus can be seen at the hotel’s website, and all can be paired with regional wines such as Sauvignon Blac, Val de Loire, L’Abbaye (Loire Valley), Cote de Provence Rose (Provence) or Merlot Cabernet Organit Duberny (Rousillon and Languedoc) from Le Blaireau’s all-French wine list.
Designed to offer a trip around France, these wines will introduce diners to different classic and regional French wines.
