Alsatian cuisine is usually served in very generous portions with popular hearty dishes including ‘Choucroute Garnie’ meaning ‘Dressed sauerkraut’. This dish incorporates finely cut German cabbage, salted cuts of pork, sausages and potatoes and features proudly on our Alsace regional menu.

Alsace is also an important wine producing region and principally offers white wine made from grapes of Burgundy and Germany.

Le Blaireau Head Chef Jean-Raymond Dijoux has created a delectable menu to give you the chance to taste exquisite dishes from Alsace yourself, right here in the New Forest. To start, try chef’s Quiche Lorraine followed by mouth-watering Breast of Chicken with Mushrooms and Cancoillotte Cheese served with ‘Spaetzle’, a soft egg noodle, popular in Switzerland and Austria. Finish with ‘Streusel aux pommes et raisin’ – an ancient Alsatian apple cake inspired by Austrian gastronomy.

It sounds simply delicious doesn’t it?
