Throughout its French tour, La Grande Carriole has been welcoming Romanian chefs and inviting audiences to taste and discover a reinterpretation of traditional Romanian cuisine at the venues of France-Romania Season cultural events. In Bordeaux, La Grande Carriole will be stopping off at La Cité du Vin for the weekend, along with chef Ioan Bebeselea (the 2018 Gault & Millau Romania Guide’s Chef of the Year) who will be showing Romanian cuisine in a new light to delight our taste buds.

Born of a collaboration between Marie-Josée Ordener (the project’s creator and artistic director) and designers Maria Decu and Mihai Dumitrache (Studio MD/MD), La Grande Carriole seeks to tell a story, serving as a working tool for chefs whose recipes write their own stories about this Franco-Romanian collaboration.

There are four dishes to choose from on Saturday 16 and Sunday 17 February (to take away):

  • Cream of vegetable soup flavoured with horseradish and beetroot juice
  • Sheep's cheese croquette with cumin seeds
  • Borlotti bean puree, smoked sausage and pickles    
  • Rose hip jam doughnut
