Croque Monsieur at Champagne Bar
In celebration of Bastille day indulge in a Croque Monsieur at Sofitel Sydney Darling Harbour.
The title Croque Monsieur comes from “croquer”, to bite and “monsieur” meaning mister. It’s literally a gentleman’s sandwich. It first appears in literature in a work by Proust, In Search of Lost Time in 1918, but it had featured on menus in Paris as early as 1910. It is made of simple ingredients found in any French home; bread, cheese and ham. The bread is usually a more sweet version of normal bread, a bit like brioche (“pain de mie“). Given it is also truffle season we've taken the traditional croque monsieur, added a touch of truffle, and paired it with our Signature Pour, Billecart-Salmon Brut Réserve.
A decadent elevation of a timeless French classic.
