Gerard’s toasts to Rhone/Provence at wine dinner
April 29, 2011 - Carla Tracy
Gerard’s restaurant in Lahaina will transport lovers of French food and wine into the heart of Provence and Rhone at 6 p.m. May 20.
Owner-chef Gerard Reversade is from Gascony, and he excels at these wine dinners that highlight the food and the wines of his homeland. Past wine dinners have featured the Loire Valley and Burgundy. But he always adds an island twist.
“Chef Gerard is now serving Maui Cattle Co. all-natural filet of beef and Haleakala grass-fed lamb,” says his General Manager Genevieve Simpson. “He also just got back from the lavender farm in Kula, where he picked some fresh lavender so he may start to play around with his dessert that will be served at the dinner. The accompanying wines will be by Southern Wines & Spirits.”
The menu includes Truffle Duxelles in Puff Pastry Clos St. Magdelaine, Cassis Blanc, Provence, 2008
Island Fish Bourride with sauce Rouille and croutons Château d’Esclans, Côtes de Provence, 2008
Haleakala Ranch Lamb Daube with pasta Chateauneuf du Pape, Château de la Gardine, Rhone Valley, 2004
Housemade Lavender ice cream with coconut/macadamia nut cookie Domaine de Durban, Muscat de Beaumes de Venise, Rhone Valley, 2007
Cost is $75 per person. For more details, call Gerard’s at 661-8939 or visit Gerard’s Maui.
