Bistro Voltaire’s culinary mastermind, Colin Beaumier, demonstrates a constellation of gourmet techniques gleaned from various regional French cooking traditions. Beaumier commences demonstrations by sliding pear and melted shallots into a puff-pastry envelope alongside notes of longing, and delivering it to the plates of up to 35 guests. The second course swaddles salmon in a feuille de brick overcoat, flanked by an entourage of dauphin potatoes and ratatouille. Then a duck-breast filet teams up with passion fruit, orange, green bean, and roasted almond aboard a raft of herb risotto, sailing past each sweet, savory, and citrusy checkpoint on diners’ tongues. The final course of flourless chocolate cake smuggles a raspberry center into unsuspecting mouths and offers lovers as well as freshly allied sea captains bites to feed each other.

Bistro Voltaire also pairs authentic French wines with the first three courses. Sips of Château St. Eulalie Minervois bolster the puff pastry and a Daniel Olivier sauvignon blanc sounds out blasts from a crystalline conch shell, summoning the seafaring flavors of the salmon course. Finally, Château Haut Sarthes bergerac waits in the wings to wash down the flavors of the duck course and inspire conversations about rappelling down the Eiffel Tower.

Some friends went to Bistro Voltaire after seeing a Facebook post of mine. They were very pleased with their meals. My husband and I look forward to dining there again. We very much enjoyed all the scrumptious food offered in the Groupon demo.
