Having spent much time in France and being in Paris most recently in June, at this point you may realise I love French food (and fashion and style and architecture). So, it comes as no surprise that I was drooling a little to hear about Annie’s Gastropub is having a French tasting menu dinner. Oh yes, they’re bringing France to Cork on August 29th starting at 7pm for €45 per person.
A taste of the menu, you ask? Oh, alright…

This is all just what is in mind for the night, some items may change before then or be unavailable. Always the challenge with fresh ingredients and speciality items.
Goodness, this is so short it probably sounds very commercial, but heck I just wanted company with my drool fest over here.
