Chef Margot McCormack's delectable East Nashville cafe Marché has unveiled a five-month series of wine dinners, with cuisine paired with wines from Woodland Wine Merchant.
Marché is offering a four-course dinner preceded by an amuse (that's a sort of mini-appetizer designed to get your tastebuds excited). The amuse will be "deconstructed pot au feu," the menu promises. Whatever that may be, I'm sure it's good.
The four full courses include treats like duck liver pate, braised Painted Hills short ribs and a cheese and poached pear dessert, with each course complemented by a specially selected French wine.
The Pot au Feu Wine Dinner starts at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday. It's just $40 per person, including wine. Reservations are required: Call Marché at 262-1111. The restaurant is at 1000 Main St., just off Five Points in East Nashville.
Now, here's the schedule with themes for the rest of the wine dinner series:
April 14: House Made Pasta
May 12: Spring Vegetables
June 16: French Riviera
Aug. 25: Spain
