In March, Bosc tempts the palate with Provencal fare with Roasted Lamb Loin with Basted Tapenade, Artichokes Barigoule, and Fava Beans. Then, concluding the culinary journey through France in October, patrons return to Bosc’s home with a taste of the cuisine from Lyon. The featured item from the Lyonnais menu is a personal favorite of Bosc, the Volaille Demi-Deuil “Mere Brazier”, Poached Alf Chicken, truffled under the skin, with a Broth of Poached Vegetables, and Sauce Supreme.
