French gastronomy in Pondicherry
As a former French colony, the city still has its quiet and shady streets to walk in, an original architecture with beautiful colonial mansions used as guest houses or restaurants. You can also see some pétanque players sometimes… So many come here to discover the “French touch” of Pondicherry with its culinary specialties and its several French restaurants in the town.
Why don’t you learn how to prepare these dishes by yourself and return home to surprise your friends with a typical starter such as “Mimosa” eggs, followed by a delicious and hearty “boeuf bourguignon” and finalize with a sweet and decadent “mousse au chocolat”?
For each menu we will use only the products and ingredients available on the Indian market. This way, anyone in Pondicherry can do the recipes again. French cuisine will be accessible for all and will no longer be a secret for you.
What will you cook?
Several menus are offered depending on the market availability and your wishes; there is something for all tastes, including a special vegetarian menu. Discover some attractive dishes like Gougère a cheese chou pastry, île flottante a dessert made with English custard cream and caramelized whipped eggs, veal stew, coloured verrines (but what do they actually include?), shrimps cocktail and many other surprises...
