Chef Bruno Davaillon is a brilliant chef. His rendition of fresh Maine lobster, poached rhubarb slices, crunchy blood sausage made with lardo and leeks, served in reduction of lobster broth and Syrah was maybe my favorite meal of 2012.
Occasionally the Mansion hosts wine dinners. I’m not sure, but I think they only market them through their newsletters. The small events sell out fast. Each time I receive a notice, I want to go. The food and wine pairings are brilliant. If you aren’t on their email blast, sign up now. Perhaps there is still room for the fall Burgundy dinner on Oct. 23. It features De Montille wines and Davaillon’s decadent five-course meal. Canapes are back! Rejoice and check the attack for your old fondue pot. It could happen again.
