A “food court” and a guest chef at the Grandes tables de la Comédie

” Drink. Eat. Dance. This is the program of the Grandes table de la Comédie during the Short Film Festival.

Until February 4, Grandes tables and its chef, Frédéric Coursol, are collaborating with Taiwanese chef Andy Chien. Two first courses, two second courses, two desserts. And an amazing menu. Andy Chien notably offers grilled eryngii (it’s a mushroom) or candied sweet potato with lemon…for dessert.

Still in the kitchen, Frédéric Coursol – who recalls that the record number of covers in one day is 780 – has created a special menu for the celebration (croq’Comédie, pâté en croute, guinea fowl supreme, homemade fries, cheeses from ‘Auvergne, chestnut and blueberry pacade…) and also offers a dish of the day: today confit bacon with mustard and green lentil ragout.

But this year, says the chef, “there’s really a backyard bet.” Rue Léo-Lagrange, where the Grandes tables terrace is located, hosts Taiwanese street food stalls where you can taste karaage (fried chicken), domburi, bao, soups, spring rolls and ravioli.

At night we dance, as promised:

  • Saturday 28 January: Huck, “figure of the Clermont electronic scene”.
  • Thursday 2 February: “Switch Groove, hybrid, luminous and cosmic music”.
  • Saturday 4 February: Gily, member of the Clermont collective Beat Me.

After two years of “stillness” and just before the opening of the festival, Frédéric Coursol kept a promise: “Here, we’ll let ourselves go! »

Andy Chien’s menu is served from 12-3pm and 7-10pm. During the day, the room transforms into a tea room. Outside, street food from 18:00 to 1:00 and DJ Set Thursday and Saturday from 22:00 to 1:00. 69 bis, boulevard François-Mitterrand.
