Sneak Preview: La Madeleine's Seasonal Fall Menu Items

Fall is in the air...and La Madeleine Country French Cafe has introduced its new Fall menu items. This seasonal menu features two delicious new pasta dishes and two delectable pastry items. I had a chance to try these new menu items over the weekend, and they're really fantastic! The first item we sampled was Creamy Pasta Lyonnaise. It features bacon, mushrooms and bowtie pasta in a creamy demi-glace sauce. The flavor is rich, flavorful and earthy. The pasta can be enjoyed as is for a vegetarian meal -- or you can add grilled chicken or shrimp. I had it with chicken and found it hearty and filling.
The other new pasta dish on the Fall menu is Spicy Basque Country Pasta. This robust entree features chorizo sausage, roasted garlic, red bell pepper, and bowtie pasta. It's tossed in tomato Gruyere cream sauce. If you like your pasta spicy and full of flavor, this is the entree for you! It's also available as is or can be topped with grilled chicken or shrimp. Both pasta dishes are served with a freshly baked mini sea salt baguette. These addictive baguettes are crusty and golden brown on the outside and pillowy soft inside -- with a nice salty bite. Before we left, we had to sample both of the Fall seasonal bakery items.
 Apple Cream Danish features croissant pastry filled with chunks of baked apple and pastry cream. After its baked, it's drizzled with a caramel glaze. It was so good, and not overly sweet. This pastry is perfect with a cup of coffee flavored with cream and sugar. Also perfect is La Madeleine's popular Traditional Carrot Cake...it's back just in time for Fall! It features two layers of moist and spicy carrot cake and rich cream cheese icing. If you're looking for a decadent Fall dessert, this carrot cake definitely fits the bill!

If you want to try these delicious seasonal menu items, you'll need to act fast! This duo of pasta dishes and bakery items will be available until October 28th at all La Madeleine locations in Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana, Florida, Georgia, and Virginia. I hope that you'll give them a try and enjoy them as much as we did! Whether you stop in to enjoy an Apple Cream Danish and cup of coffee in front of La Madeleine's working fireplace, a pasta lunch with your co-wokers -- or even a takeout piece of Traditional Carrot Cake to enjoy at home -- you'll sure to love all of these yummy Fall-inspired items.
