Susan Tipton of Acquiesce Winery Curated our Winter Menu for 2022. She selected three delicious French recipes and paired them with a selection of Acquiesce wines. Starting with a savoury tart followed by crispy duck confit and finishing with an apple tart, this dinner menu highlights the flavours of France with perfect wine pairings.

Tarte Soleil - Puff-Pastry Appetizer
From the chef, "Provençals like things sunny and pretty, so this is a popular take on the local, traditional fougasse. It can be filled with any strong-flavoured spreadable mixture such as tapenade or anchoiade or a sundried-tomato paste or even a spinach/ricotta or goat cheese."

Crispy Duck Confit and Fried Potatoes
This dish is a surefire way to impress family, friends, or virtually anyone you'd like to have over for dinner. There's nothing better than extra crispy duck skin coupled with tender, juicy duck meat flavoured with robust spices and butter. Accompany this gourmet-style duck with perfectly-fried Yukon Gold potatoes, and anyone would guess you're a 5-star chef.
Crispy Duck Confit a French Classic
French Apple Tart
This dessert is lovely and "light"-ish with a crisp crust and sweet baked apples. Serve at room temperature, if you can wait that long.
