Celebrity chefs weren’t the only ones whose travel plans were upset due to the ash from Iceland’s Eyjafjallajökull eruption settling all over Europe. A group of French winemakers from the region of Jura were forced to cancel their trip to New York, as well as a wine dinner at The Ten Bells on the Lower East Side scheduled for this Thursday, April 22. You can still head to the bar for a bottle of Jacques Puffeney’s 2007 Arbois Pinot Noir (not cheap at $60). And it’s good timing, too: Ten Bells is bringing back its Blanquette de veau this weekend: milk-fed veal cooked in a cream sauce. The reason cited? It’s meant to rain.
