 Thanks to All Who Joined Suzette's Demonstration at Operation North Pole Virtual Cooking Telethon

Sunday, March 21


Suzette's was proud to stand along side some of the giants in the Chicago Food Scene. We have been involved with this fundraising event—Operation North Pole's Operation Taste—since it started several years ago. Marley Kayden of Chicago’s Best was the lead Emcee for the event, and other celebrities also participated. Please read more details, below.

Operation North Pole (ONP) is hosting a Virtual Cooking Telethon from 9am to 9pm on Sunday, March 21st., featuring many of the great chefs that have supported ONP and our annual gourmet food and beverage fundraiser, Operation Taste. The proceeds of this year's fundraiser will go to support the chefs and employees of all these great restaurants who now are fighting to keep their doors open. It's time for ONP to say "Thank You" to and for all that these folks have done for us over the years. We need your support to make this event a success and help them through this difficult time. Please join us and support a great cause.

View or download the Recipes that were demonstrated, below. Also, watch for details on our Facebook and Instagram.

What is Operation North Pole?

Operation North Pole, Inc. (“ONP”) is a Chicago volunteer-based children’s charity that annually hosts a holiday fantasy trip to the North Pole for families who have a child battling a life threatening/terminal illness. As a volunteer-based organization, ONP relies on donations and fundraising to operate. For the past 5 years, a number of Chicago’s most well-known chefs have hosted a gourmet food tasting event and raised a majority of the money needed for ONP.

More about the Let's Get Cookin' Event

We will be hosting a 12 hour live streaming telethon, called “Let’s Get Cookin”, featuring twenty-four Chicago area chefs who will demonstrate their talents for you to see.  It's a supersized cooking show to learn secret recipes and give back at the same time. All the net proceeds will go back to benefit the chefs/restaurants who have been so generous to us.

Family Meal Week at Suzette's 

This special is closed...for now.

We hope you enjoyed our French Family Meal. Watch for its return in the future.

Thank you for all who ordered this special. We are glad to help foster the love of French cuisine in the up-and-coming generation!

The story of Family Meal Week at Suzette's: A customer emailed and asked us to put together a Family Meal because she wanted to introduce her young children to French Food. That made our hearts happy. So here it is!

Our Family Meal for Four starts out with a Baby Field Greens SALADE with Mandarin Oranges and Slivered Almonds. A small container of our Suzette's Balsamic Vinaigrette is included.

Your main entree is, of course, CREPES! You have one choice of crepe filling; Beef Bourguignon, Chicken with Mushrooms or Roasted Vegetables with Feta Cheese. The filling you choose is packaged separately along with a container of crepes and you assemble the crepes at home. You can request regular or gluten free crepes. The only filling that is gluten free is the Roasted Vegetable. We know with children there are many variables to consider in getting dinner together so we are making sure you have extra crepes in the event you need to turn to something else to fill the crepe.

And then there is DESSERT! A beautiful French Tart for Four filled with a quintessential French Filling—Pear Frangipane. That would be poached pears with an Almond Filling baked in a buttery shortbread crust. To glid the lily a little and make your family love French Food forever, we are also including 4 assorted French Macarons which, by the way are gluten free.

This lovely French meal cost $55.00. If you would like to enhance the meal we might suggest a baguette, croissants—butter, chocolate, strawberry or blueberry or maybe to stretch it to feed more a Quiche. Quiche are $25 for a whole quiche or $5.50 per slice. Available is Quiche Lorraine, Spinach, Ham and Asparagus or Broccoli Cheese which has no meat.

(This promotion is closed, for now.)

Feb. 2–7, 2021: Tuesday and Wednesday please order by 1 pm for a pick up as late as 5 pm. Thursday–Saturday the family meal is available for pick up until 7 pm and on Sunday it is available for pickup as late as 2 pm

Salade Composée—Explore the French Countryside!

For a limited time, Salade Composée is Back! Call 630.462.0898 to order your favorites.

 

A composed salad in France is a work of art—satisfying not only the eye but also the palate. Freshness, color, texture and taste create the perfect salad, which is only enhanced by a slice of good baguette and a glass of Rosé or nice dry, minerally French White Wine.

In France, knowing the name of the salad equals knowing what is in the salad itself. Since these composed salads represent different regions of France, the specialty of that region shines through the ingredients.

These salads are large enough to enjoy as a main course or great to share. So fasten up your seat belts and let’s start the Tour de France—salade style.

 

Salade Limousin

The Limousin is part of the beautiful southwestern French Countryside, known for their Limousin beef. This salad features slices of roast beef, salade de Pomme de Terre or French Potato Salad with cornichons and haricot verts tossed with whole grain mustard vinaigrette. Roasted red beets, crumbled blue cheese, walnuts and mixed field greens finish up this exquisite salad. $18.50

Salade Provençal

Provence is home to world-renowned lavender fields, rolling vineyards and olive groves. Its salad boasts three discs of goat cheese on baguette slices toasted, then drizzled with honey, roasted beet salad, walnuts and chickpeas provençal with mixed greens, haricot verts and a tasty olive mix. $17.50

Salade Niçoise

Nestled in the French Riviera, the city of Nice has olives so
famous this salad is named after them. Our salad has baby greens, oil-packed tuna, hard-boiled eggs, tomatoes, haricot verts, boiled potatoes, housemade croutons for crunch and, of course, plenty of Niçoise olives. A classic! $17.50

Salade Camargue

The Camargue is in the delta region of the Rhone River in southern Provence. This region is known for its rice, sea salt, paella and cowboys on white horses herding black bulls. This salad features an Orzo Salad with assorted peppers, black olives and other fresh summer vegetables and our chickpeas provençal. Boiled egg wedges, oil-packed tuna with capers, a sprinkle of feta cheese and baby spinach complete this delicious salad. Suzette’s Balsamic Vinaigrette is highly recommended. $18.50

Salade Lyonnaise

Historic Lyon inspires this salad that features steamed asparagus, hard boiled eggs, sliced potatoes with herbs, bacon and diced Comté cheese, housemade croutons and baby greens with plenty of arugula topped with a soft-poached egg. $18.50

Salade Parisienne

The real Tour de France ends in Paris, as does our list of French Composed Salads. This salad features boiled ham, slices of Comté cheese, wedges of hard-boiled eggs, sliced fresh mushrooms, boiled potatoes, tomatoes and lettuce. Our salad dressing of choice is Green Goddess, but it is your choice (see dressings, below). $17.50

Salade Périgourdine

Oh the Périgord. The land of duck, foie gras and truffles! Comfort food at its best. This beautiful composed salad has a slice of our housemade paté, slices of smoked duck breast, cornichons, a round of goat cheese on toasted baguette, red onion marmalade, walnuts and mixed baby greens. The dressing of choice is our housemade red wine vinegar
with Dijon mustard, olive oil and walnut oil.
$19.50

Salade Dressings

Choose from our savory dressings:
» Suzette’s Balsamic Vinaigrette with Olive Oil
» Green Goddess
» Housemade Red Wine Vinegar with Walnut Oil

Thank You to Christian Beyer and All Who Joined Us for Our Winemaker's Dinner

Thursday, April 18, 2019–6:00 pm

A fabulous time was had by all

An excited group of wine and food enthusiasts joined us for 8 incredible wines from the Emile Beyer Portfolio! The wines were chosen by Anton Maletich and carefully paired with a five-course dinner designed by Chef Donna Hesik and Chef Lucia Padilla.

Emile Beyer wines represent 14 generations of wine making based in the charming village of Eguisheim, the very heart of Alsace wine production. Winemaker, Christian Beyer will be joining us to tell us about his wines and answer your questions about Alsatian wines and wine making. Our menu showcases how these delicious Alsatian wines can be paired with typical cuisine and can also stand up to unusual pairings. The depth of these whites love to stand up to a challenge. Are you up for the challenge ... like maybe red wine for dessert? The wines are not your entry level wines but dig deep into the Emile Beyer portfolio for some single vineyard choices. One wine we served is #45 on Wine Spectator Magazine list of top 100.
