Maison Gardet, Epernay was founded in the late 19th century by shopkeeper and adventurous man Charles Gardet. His son Georges Gardet moved into a Belle Epoque residence in Chigny-les-Roses in the 1930s with the very precise aim to develop the Champagne Gardet brand, whilst continuing to supply wines of unimpeachable quality. He focused his methods on the secular champagne making rules: a high-quality grape supply and winemaking process fully oriented towards excellence. His intention to respect this tradition is still at the heart of the current owners preoccupations – the Prieux family. They carry on this fine tradition, and with attachment to their roots and to the Champagne region, the family has been working in the arboricultural and agricultural for years; passing on their love for the land from generation to generation.

Grilled Porterhouse Steak with Summer Truffles and Cognac Shallot Reduction This recipe is ideal for either summer black truffles or Burgundy truffles. In this preparation, the truffles soak up the juice from the steak and become warm and softened.  Since summer truffles are only a fraction of the cost of winter truffles, you can be generous with the quantity of truffles used.  We used French summer truffles for this recipe because French summer truffles tend to have a more robust flavor than Italian summer truffles. Serves 6 – 8 Ingredients: Two 1.5-pound aged prime porterhouse steaks coarse sea salt and freshly ground pepper 4 tablespoons unsalted butter 1 tablespoon olive oil 1/4 cup minced shallots 1 cup beef stock 1/2 cup Cognac or other brandy 4 – 8 ounces French summer black truffle (or Burgundy truffles) Instructions: Remove the steak from the refrigerator at least 30 minutes before cooking.  Season…
