Three days, a three-course meal and every day a different chef. Every Thursday, Friday and Sunday night, the French lunchroom Rue de Sèvres (check the Rue de Sèvres article) transforms into ‘Chef Podium’. Three dedicated freelance chefs will shine and, based on their own and unique style, represent their own three course meal.
Every week the owners Nimrod Kahn & Marc Schoorl buy a crate full of organic, fresh and healthy food, based on high quality for small prices. These gentlemen can realize a three-course menu with good food for only € 20. In this case less is more! And did I mention that the wine they serve, is only € 2.50 a glass?
Mehdi, the friendly faced cook comes over to our table, to present the products of that night; Leek, egg and red-legged partridge. We started with a frittata (egg-based dish similar to a crustless quiche) made of leek, fennel and potato. The main menu is a tajine consisting of red-legged partridge with plums, pear and almonds. Since the partridge was quite a big portion, the lady suggested we order half a portion and in case we’d like to have some more later, we could always order the other half.
They served two beautiful wines, a full and juicy Malbec from France and a delicious white Portuguese wine which will spoil your tastebuds with tropical fruitiness. Last and definitely the best; dessert! They served an orange semifreddo with poppyseeds, which is like an ice cake-mousse kind of dessert.
