8
French Connection

Millions of people flock to France each year to enjoy its world-famous food and wine. Haute cuisine, like the kind you'll find in Paris, epitomizes the ultimate upscale dining experience. However, you don't have to be a famous chef to put on a fancy feast. What better way to impress your guests than with a French-themed brunch?

Suggested Menu:

Entree: Monte Cristo sandwiches or crepes filled with your choice of cream cheese, ice cream, yogurt or whipped cream, topped with fresh fruit

Side dishes: Green salad, fresh fruit salad and assorted cheeses with crackers

Beverages: Espresso, wine or champagne

Holiday accent: Use tent cards to label each course: l'entrée, le plat principal, le cafe, le fromage, le dessert. In the tradition of French dining, follow the main course with salad, and serve nuts after dessert. You may also want to toast with a French martini.
