    From Prep to Plate

    Oeufs en Meurette is prepared by poaching an egg in a warm wine bath and serving it on toast with bacon lardon, pearl onions, and mushrooms. The velvety texture of the sauce meurette is complemented by a Beaujolais wine pairing.

    Chef Brendan L’Etoile winningly revives Gallic classics such as red-wine-poached duck eggs with mushrooms and lardons, Burgundy snails tucked into puff pastry, and trout grenobloise.
