Cafe Castagna's Choucroute Garnie!
Imagine.... an alpine tavern with dark wood, long rough-hewn tables, and a rosy-cheeked maitre d'. The room overflows with wine, ale and laughter. Your mouth waters as a platter of sizzling sausages is carried past you.... We are excited to invite you to our final Communal Dinner for this year. It is aChoucroute Garnie- a famous Alsatian dish of sauerkraut, sausages, salted meats, and potatoes. One key component to the recipe is the use of Riesling to add bright flavor to the cabbage- and to sip alongside as well. Choucroute Garnie is eaten in fall and winter because it is warming and hearty. The cool weather has arrived in Portland so we hope you'll join us!
