Fresh and French Editorial Week 13
Another weekend bites the dust, but not to worry: we have three fabulous “Fresh and French” posts in store for you this week…
- Le mot du directeur: I paid Carsten Colmorgen, general manager at Hotel Concorde, a visit to find out what he’ll be getting up to this autumn. We talked about the joy of being a host, worthy causes and the teetering stack of invitations – to exhibition openings, awards ceremonies and business lunches – balanced on his desk right now. With everybody back from their summer holidays, September, it seems, is a busy month.
Wine and Taste
- As August makes way for September, we take a look at what the Brasserie Le Faubourg will be serving up this month. As always, guests can expect mouthwatering French dishes prepared with fresh, local produce. September tastes like a plate of braised rabbit, carrot and tuna tartare and Frankfurt’s famous green sauce; duck à l’orange; potato nougat with truffel, pumpkin gel and roasted macadamia nuts. In short, September tastes great!
- This week we paid a visit to our neighbours at the Küchenladen. They’ve got the finest collection of kitchenware I’ve ever seen with everything from heart-shaped pots and pans to a knife for opening oysters. This shop is a treat for anybody with a love of cooking, or alternatively a love of being cooked for. Nothing says “I’d like breakfast in bed tomorrow” like some porcelain eggcups, carefully giftwrapped.
