I was invited to attend when The Linden Suites launched the Mesclun Restaurant and Café last October 18. I was told that they would invite us to come back so we could savor what they have to offer. I actually asked Ms Kathy Salenga the director of marketing for The Linden Suites what Mesclun (?mes-kl?n) meant. She said that Mesclun (?mes-kl?n) is widely used as a food term referring to a combination of —or a salad made with— young tender greens (such as lettuce, arugula, and chicory). The true origin of the term, however, comes from old Occitane, literally and simply meaning “mixture”.
Duck Confit-This hands down was my favorite. The duck seemed to slide right off the bone, and the mashed potato was perfectly done was such an unexpected but pleasant mix with it. What is Duck confit anyway? (French: confit de canard French pronunciation: ?[k??.fi d(?) ka.na?]) is a French dish made with the leg of the duck. While it is made across France, it is seen as a speciality of Gascony. The confit is prepared in a centuries-old process of preservation that consists of salt curing a piece of meat (generally goose, duck, or pork) and then poaching it in its own fat. To prepare a confit, the meat is rubbed with salt, garlic, and sometimes herbs such as thyme, then covered and refrigerated for up to 36 hours. Salt-curing the meat acts as a preservative.
