Cassoulets & Frog Legs at Pinot Provence in Costa Mesa, CA

Chef Alfonso Ramirez’s creativity turns into the “wow effect” for patrons who dine at Pinot Provence in Costa Mesa, CA. Using French techniques and seasonal ingredients, Chef Alfonso turns out dishes that even impressed my friend from Paris. He has a passion for French provincial cooking using high quality ingredients to make the “rustic flavor” that makes you crave even more.

Spring Snap Pea Salad

Spring Snap Pea Salad is topped with pea tendrils, la quercia prosciutto, burrata cheese, and drizzled elderflower vinaigrette. The sweet vinaigrette balanced out the spicy notes from some of the spring greens. Burrata was creamy and paired well with the smoky, salty prosciutto. Thumbs up, way up!

Buffalo Style Frog Legs

Buffalo Style Frog Legs tossed in a beurre-blanc sriracha sauce and served with Roquefort dressing, celery sticks and breakfast radish. Fantastic spin on an American classic! The sriracha gave it great flavor and heat without the pain while not being too vinegary. The pickled onions gave it a slight sweetness. Thumbs up!

Sautéed Frog Legs

Sautéed Frog Legs are served with forest mushroom, black garlic puree, and Dijon jus. Fantastique! The frog legs were perfectly sautéed. The mushroom and garlic flavors really brought out the natural sweetness of the meat. Thumbs up, way up!

Duck Confit Cassoulet

Duck Confit Cassoulet contained tarbais beans, duck leg confit, braised pork belly, and duck jus. French comfort food to the max! The duck was tender with caramelized skin. The braised pork belly was tender with a crispy outside. The beans seemed a little sweet, but balanced out with the saltiness of the pork belly. Thumbs up!

Australian Lamb Cassoulet

Australian Lamb Cassoulet contained cannellini beans, braised lamb shoulder, mustard greens, date puree, and lamb jus. The lamb was tender at medium rare, but I would have preferred rare; tasty nonetheless. The flavors worked well with the beans. Thumbs up, way up!

Prawns are spot prawns (local shrimp from the Pacific Ocean), Yukon potatoes, uni (sea urchin), Osetra Caviar, and pistachio vinaigrette. This is an artful blend of flavors, very light and awesome. The prawns were cooked to a soft…
