The leader of our culinary revolution, Asc Helvetius, will draw from Reign of Terror's class conflicts to create a meal fit for a king...
With our dinner, we'll pay homage to revolutions past and present with an entire menu free from the labors of the animal proletariat (meaning it's vegan), with gluten-free options also available.
Just as our hypnosis crosses the boundaries of the unconscious, the evening's menu will take us on a tour of disputed borders. We'll be enjoying celeriac remoulade in a creamsome mustard black pepper dressing (from Alsace Lorraine on the French/German border) alongside exotic mushrooms a la escargots—with garlic, butter, and parsley on puff pastry—a Catalan dish nodding to the ongoing Catalonian separatist revolution.
Silken tofu thermidor, in a savory sherry cream sauce, French onion tarts, and more will be accompanied by serve-yourself pots of exotic salts—black volcanic salt, gray sea salt, Himalayan pink salt, and fine red Hawaiian salt—all free of La Gabelle, the French salt tax that was one of many matches lighting the fires of revolution.
And for desert, we'll dine on Marie Antoinette's famous line, "Qu'ils mangent de la brioche," famously translated as "Let them eat cake," with a tarte tropezienne: a classic French dessert combining rich cake-like brioche and dairy-free ice cream with crunchy pops of crystallized sugar.
You'll have your cake... and eat it too.
