To an approximation, and don't bank on this. Presumably you don't need help on the straightforward bits

Les Cortons:

Durum-wheat (the sort used to make pasta) crepe with snails, with a sauce of North Africanm spices (whether that means it doesn't have any buckwheat, as galettes usually do, I'm not sure)

Saddle of venison (may be either sex) with maniguette (guinea pepper) sauce

Seasonal veg:

Les combettes

Amuse-bouche (the current sanitised term for the pre-meal freebie we used to call amuse-gueule)

Sauteed foie gras, with a remoulade (think slaw with just a light mayo and none of that sultana or raw onion nonsense) of quince and Chioggia beetroot (that's the one that's got white and red rings inside. I think Americans have a special word for it, but we just call it red and white beet)
OR

Coddled egg, sauce made from some kind of shell (this one gets me stuck), chestnut gnocchi.

Scallops with a tiramisu of white pudding and a caramelised green apple sauce, or
1/2 lobster with green lentils (have you misspelt this? don'r you mean lentilles de Puy - a small, appellation-controle kind of lentil? Or is this some obscure cook's joke about getting them out ofthe well?)

Jugged hare a la Royale (a classic French dish, with canonical ingredients outlined in the Repertoire de la Cuisine. My copy's in store, but the English translation of the Larousse Gastronomique is in every decent bookstore and explains its complexity in detail), green asparagus truffle and chestnuts, or

Shoulder of veal sauteed in truffle bouillon and a Jerusalem artichoke marmalade

All OK I guess if you need to rustle up a quick snack when friends pop in unexpectedly.

flanneruk Jan 28th, 2005 05:43 AM

Sorry

In the lobster dish, it's lentils with morteau (a sausage smoked in aromatic wood). I imagine they'd sauter the sausage, add the dry letils then simmer them, so they'd be served as a composite

So Pjsparlor? What will you have?

pjsparlor Jan 28th, 2005 06:09 AM

www.le-moulin-de-bouilland.com This is the menu from moulin de bouilland, we are staying there also, so any feedback about the hotel and restaurant would be great also, thanks again, Patti

pjsparlor Jan 28th, 2005 06:13 AM

>Wheat pancake with snails<

It sounds so much better in French.

((I))

Patrick Jan 28th, 2005 06:32 AM

Yea, Ira, but still not as bad as that Italian menu in English that said
"cooked leg bone of dead cow".
Doesn't osso bucco sound so much better?

Thanks for posting this pjsparlor. Now I know what I'll cook for dinner tonight. The Les Combettes menu! Right.
