Puerto Vallarta, Mexico - French cooking isn't fancy or snobby. It's all about layering flavors, mastering basic techniques and savoring every bite. You have a chance to sample some of these delights during the Weekly Special Menu at Daiquiri Dick's Restaurant.
"French cuisine may have the reputation for being extremely sophisticated, but it's not rocket science," says Executive Chef Ignacio Uribe, "the team enjoys working with the French recipes and making them their own."
French food is ultimately about creating a harmonious dish that elevates the quality of the main ingredient and building the flavors around it. There's a lot of tradition involved in it and the results are extraordinary. Along with Ignacio, Sous Chef Hugo Mejia and Sous Chef Rogelio Garcia have created an excellent selection of dishes for the special.
The a la carte French dinner menu runs November 9 to 15, 2015 and is served 5 to 11 pm. Here's the line up:
• French Onion Soup with Veal Stock, French Baguette Crouton and Gruyere cheese
