DECEMBER-JANUARY – 2015-6
It’s time to celebrate Christmas and the turn of the year!
As many Chicoans decorate their homes inside and out, we are filling Leon Bistro with holiday decorations and lights. We hope you’ll like them. Happy holidays everyone!
OUR DECEMBER SCHEDULE
December is a time for private parties at Leon Bistro, so there are some nights when the Wine Room and other areas are fully booked. What that means for you is that you should call ahead and let us tell you the best time for your party. That way we can insure you of the attentive service and fine food you are accustomed to.
We will be closed Dec. 23-30, reopening Dec. 31, New Year’s Eve, and then our regular schedule resumes on Jan. 6.
OUR DECEMBER/JANUARY MENU
So far, our December menu includes New Zealand Blue Nose Sea bass, a seasonal specialty, Day-Boat Scallops fresh from the East Coast, and in all likelihood, fresh Black Cod – the silkiest fish there is. (Halibut is out of season).
We also have locally-raised organic beef served with demi-glace, Dungeness Crab or Wellington-style. And, of course, the best local lamb, elk, bison, pork and chicken on the market. We’ll be adding more new items as we get closer to Christmas and New Year’s.
CELEBRATE NEW YEAR’S EVE AT LEON BISTRO
5-10 PM. No prix fixe, just our delicious food–and some luxurious specials.
Please make your reservations early!
COOKING CLASSES IN JANUARY
(Classes are 6:30-9, $70/person, $15 wine pour, reservation only)
Tuesday, Jan. 12 – SEAFOOD
This is the first time we’ve offered this class and it is in response to your requests. Seafood belongs in your cooking repertoire and it surely will be once you are comfortable with the techniques and recipes we use in Leon Bistro.
Tuesday, Jan. 26 – THAI CUISINE
It is one of our most popular classes, but our returning attendees always find lots that’s new to learn. Since it’s January, we will be using fresh winter vegetables as well as the meat and poultry, and we’ll show you how to prepare curry pastes that suit these ingredients as well as your taste preferences. The cuisine is naturally very healthy and low fat.
OUR PRODUCTS MAKE GREAT CHRISTMAS GIFTS
Check out our list of house-made products on our website or at the restaurant. Pick your favorite items and we will wrap them for your holiday giving. — oils and vinaigrettes separately from the sauces since they don’t need refrigeration. They are gifts that will delight anyone on your list who likes to cook! We especially recommend our demi-glace, which is the secret ingredient in so many of our sauces. We wouldn’t run our restaurant without it.
