Garden Museum Café | Tour de France: Normandy

A celebration of regional French cooking on Friday nights throughout January and February. Next stop, Normandy.

Once the Christmas festivities have been and gone and the new year has begun, it is customary to make pledges for a healthier and more prudent lifestyle. A noble endeavour, but often accompanied by a lack of balance, a sense of ennui, and an inevitable straying from the too strict and stringent path we set ourselves.

We have just the antidote.

On Friday evenings throughout January and February the Garden Museum Café will be running a series of dinners celebrating the regional cooking of France, to restore strength and sooth the soul through the cold and troublesome weeks of Winter.

Our head chef Myles will be taking us on a tour of some of his favourite French provinces, show casing some of the authentic cuisine and traditional dishes that have inspired his cooking over the years.

Each week the menu will be prix fixe – three courses for £29.

The next stop in our Tour de France series takes us to the North Westerly provinces of Normandy & Brittany.

The food of these rugged, coastal regions reflects their bountiful shoreline, so our prix fixe menu this week is going to focus on fish and seafood, with a rich and hearty feel.

There’ll be some excellent, terroir-driven cider and perry to drink alongside, and a very special calvados to round things off.
