Dine Out for Life at Le Pichet this Thursday!

Here at Le Pichet, we have always been big fans of Lifelong and and the great work they have done in our community for years. Remember the NW AIDS Foundation? Chicken Soup Brigade ? Evergreen Wellness Advocates? The Lifelong AIDS Foundation? All these make up what is now known simply as Lifelong.

Dining Out for Life is Lifelong’s biggest annual fundraiser and has become one of Seattle’s favorite culinary events. Usually, we ask you to dine with us, then we donate part of every dollar spent to Lifelong. However, this year is a little different…that’s an understatement! Because restaurants are hurting, Lifelong is not asking us to donate a portion of our sales. Instead, they want everyone to come out to support restaurants that support Lifelong! And hey, if you to learn more about what Lifelong does and make a donation to them as well, so much the better!

Le Pichet still has tables available on September 24 so call or email to reserve now!

Pâte Albigeios

A long time favorite at Le Pichet, our Pâte Albigeois is a country-styl pâte made with pork and pork liver, scented with garlic, onions, cognac and spices. We serve it with grain mustard, cornichons and honey walnuts…honey and walnuts are two of the trademark artisan products of the region of the city of Albi, in the southwest of France.

E. Cabretou, now on the cheese board

Now on the cheese board at Café Presse, this goat’s milk tomme from the French Basque region is perfectly ripe and ready to sample. The Basques are famous for their sheep milk cheeses, but a small amount of goat’s milk cheese is also made. These large tommes, which weight about 9#, take their name from the word “cabri” = “kid” or “young goat”. Aged for about 8 months, with a natural rind, the taste is slightly sweet/salty with flavors of hazelnuts and caramel. Miam Miam
