How to organise a real French Dinner at home in Auckland ?
Do you miss France or rather do you miss French food? The Petit Journal Auckland gives you the skinny on where to find all the essential products for a good typical French dinner to enjoy amongst friends. And it's almost authentic!
Straight to L’Authentique Charcuterie, specialised as the name suggests in French cold meats. You will find terrine, rillettes, duck mousse and even tapenade. We can almost taste the south west of France here.
The butcher's cut
Although not a French butcher, Grey Lynn Butchers have been voted "Best Butcher in Auckland" by Metro Magazine and they supply many restaurants every week. You have to admit New Zealand has great quality meat. Moreover the owners are lovely and will always welcome you with a smile.
Wine and cheese
Bordeaux, Côtes du Rhône, Chardonnay or Sauvignon ... Maison Vauron is an institution in Auckland. Wine merchant since 1999, it is also the most important French wine cellar in New Zealand. Maison Vauron through L’Atelier du fromage also imports directly from France a very nice selection of cheese from our sweet country: Brie, Camembert, blue, Beaufort. Who could want more?
Do you like to finish on a sweet note? Little French Pastry offers you a choice of entirely homemade crème brûlée, lemon pie, mille-feuilles or macaroons. Uh tough choice.
Bon appétit !
