In case you haven’t heard yet, Le Pichet and Café Presse support the Meatless Monday movement (known  as Lundi Vert in France) by pledging to eat less and better quality meat and fish. Its better for the planet, better for our health and more humane for animals. That is why every Monday, in addition to our regular menu, we will be featuring daily specials that don’t include meat for fish.

Here are some photos of recent Lundi Verte main course specials we have featured at Le Pichet

Pithivier at Le Pichet

IMG_1079

Pithivier, also know as Galette de Rois in France, is  a traditional dessert make with sweetened puff pastry filled with almond cream, then baked to golden brown.  Although it is famously served in France on January 6th to celebrate the 12th day of Christmas, we love it all year long because it is so good!  Now at Le Pichet, while it lasts, try the version made by our pastry chef Drake Jones. Drake flavors the filling with a little rum and serves the galette with vanilla creme anglais.  Yummy!
