Uncork the Rose d'Anjou and put the bottle in a wine bucket.
Place a generous round of foie gras atop a bed of sautéed kale seasoned with a bit of four spice, salt, sherry, and a touch of beef stock for richness. Serve with individual French levain rounds.
Place the pommes Annette on a warmed plate.
Slice the chicken breasts on a diagonal, then overlap them on the pommes Annette.
Drizzle with the sauce (pan sauce made with a brunoise of shallots, sherry, pomegranate juice, a bit of beef stock, salt, butter and crème fraîche.
Garnish with pomegranate seeds.
Serve with slices of French levain bread.
Arrange some French cheeses on a platter: Camembert, Fourme d'Ambert, Petit Basque.
Pop the cork on the Asti. This wine is a little bit sweet, perhaps even sweeter than this rather tart pie.
Slice a piece of tarte tatin and plate it.
Then, go to your friends' place and eat a pane con pavo.
Try not to explode.
