Locally sourced cheese is always preferable to moon cheese, which was found to have dangerously high levels of Buzz Aldrin's brain waves. Enjoy a fresh, earthbound meal with today's Groupon: for $40, you get a three-course gourmet Pic Nic Package at Ró Chez Specialty Meats & Market in Ridgeland (an $80 value). This Groupon expires in two months, and orders must be made 24 hours in advance.
Having honed his techniques under the exacting palates of Heinz Enggist and Emeril Lagasse, Chef James Roaché sharpens the palates of eager foodies with the three-course Pic Nic Package, which culls a sampling of gourmet entrees from Ró Chez's rotating menu. Each breakfast/brunch- or lunch/dinner-themed feast is crafted from fresh, locally sourced foodstuffs such as old-fashioned red-rind hoop cheese, smoked veggies, and game sausage, and satisfies up to a trio of tasters. The buffet preps taste buds with an appetizer, fills internal tankards with a heavier-tasting dish, and finishes off with a sweet that sedates bickering tonsils. The Pic Nic Package also includes a special lagniappe from Chef Roaché and can be tailored to exclude any allergy- or childhood-phobia-inducing fare.
Boasting a relaxed atmosphere, Ró Chez drips with antique butcher-shop décor including an old ironing board tabletop, refurbished meat-market equipment, and the sound of clucking chickens echoing form the restaurant's phone. The vintage farmhouse feel is further enhanced by Chef Roaché's rotating menu of comfort cuisines and succulent buttermilk, freshly milked from a herd of grazing butter sticks.
