Blue’s Dinner Club Season 5: Friday, April 24, 2015
Blue’s Dinner Club Season 5 finished up earlier this year with a visit from Mike Engel of Pastiche Bistro and Wine Bar. At his French bistro and wine store in Bay View, Mike cooks traditional French dishes with locally-sourced ingredients.
Chef Joe Muench, Erick Fisher and the Blue’s crew teamed up with Mike for courses of elegant French-inspired cuisine, paired with excellent wines. Chef Joe brought the house down (but didn’t thankfully didn’t burn the house down) with a show-stopper caramel Grand Marnier flambé to top dessert of an Apple Puff Pastry Tarte.
The visit helped inspire Blue’s to dedicate July to French-inspired breakfast and lunch specials during a monthlong celebration of France – and close out a the season which raised $3,000 for Ronald McDonald House Charities Eastern Wisconsin.
