Vin Chaud for the Holidays

vin chaud Nov 2014

Now at Café Presse and Le Pichet…our house made Vin Chaud.  Vin chaud is the hot mulled wine of France, traditionally served during the Holidays and any time that its cold and damp out.  I worked under a chef in Paris who would grab onto the slightest sneeze or sniffle from anyone in the kitchen as an excuse to make up a batch.

More famously, vin chaud is the beverage of choice for warming hands and spirits at annual Marchés de Noël, or traditional Christmas markets that pop up across France every  year during the month of December.

Our version is made with red wine, brandy, lemon, orange, cinnamon, cloves, mace, bay leaf and allspice and a touch of honey, served hot with a twist of orange.   Enjoy it now and until the end of the year.

What:  Le Pichet’s 15th annual Fête de Beaujolais Nouveau
When:  Thursday November 20, 2014, from 6pm until late

Where:  Le Pichet, 1933 1st Avenue

Le Pichet’s celebration of the first new wine of the year,  which will mark its 15th edition on November 20,  has become a highlight of our year and a party not to be missed.  Don’t expect a solemn wine tasting event (spoiler alert:  the new Beaujolais will be light bodied and fun to drink), but instead, a Cafe-style celebration of wine, food and friends.

Live music featuring:      7pm La Foule     10pm The Djangomatics

No reservations or cover charge, we will make room for everyone!
