In Alsace

I am in Alsace!  As a prelude to a visit to our house in the SW of France, decided to plan a week in a region about which I don’t know very much…a considerable shortcoming on my part, given that I have family that live in Flaxlanden, a village outside of Mulhouse in southern Alsace.

Look for upcoming posts from this très belle region of France.

    I live in Alaska and my sister in law lives nearby your establishment and has raved about Cafe Presse for years. I finally got to go today and I was absolutely delighted with the menu and the ambiance. I declared “I am so happy.” three times during our meal. I spent my junior year abroad in Strasbourg (28 years ago!) so I am quite pleased to see you are there visiting la route du vin. Perhaps you can incorporate some traditional Alsatian recipes in an upcoming menu.

      I am sure that things I have enjoyed will show up this Fall or Winter. Also, our quarterly Chef’s Dinner at Cafe Presse (in late November) will likely feature and All-Alsace menu…keep your eye on this blog for upcoming details.
