A fan favorite returns this year and *didn’t* increase in price, yay! The escargots are prepared by the expert chefs in France to basically become nothing but garlic and butter. They’re placed inside of the croissant that’s topped with a garlic/parsley butter. This may not be the healthiest option at the festival, but it is unique and delicious. We’re still crazy about it after all these years.

France changed up their beef option this year, braising the beef in beer and serving it with a bunch of bacon and onion on top of mashed potatoes. Fortunately the beef was quite tender and only required a fork to really pull apart. Matched with the bacon and mashed potatoes made this dish really good! It’s not really unique and doesn’t scream France (like escargot) but it’s a solid and safe dish.

 

Crème Brûlée à la Confiture de Framboises: Crème Brûlée with House-made Raspberry Jam (V, GF) – $4.25

Typically France changes their Crème Brûlée every year, but not from 2017 to 2018. Regardless we checked it out and confirmed that the decently-priced dessert is still just as good as ever. Crack open the hardened-sugar on top and reveal the sweet custard mixed with raspberry jam below. It’s a great dessert and one that’s easily shareable between a family.

 

La Passion Martini Slush: Vodka, Grey Goose Le Citron, Cranberry and Passion Fruit Juice – $10.75

We love this frozen beverage. It’s a little expensive but the taste and booziness of the drink are well-warranted. It’s cool, refreshing, and tastes fruity enough to be enjoyable without being too sweet.

St-Germain Sparkling Kir: Sparkling Wine and St-Germain Elderflower Liqueur – $8.50

A splash of elderflower liqueur is put on top of the sparkling wine making for a fragrantly floral drink. Unfortunately it’s a little too earthy to be enjoyed, unless you really really really enjoy elderflower.
