Happy Sunday from Kyoto ^-^
I’ve been in Japan for the last week…though still have adventures to share from Krabi and Charleston (stay tuned :). For now, favorite bites from a quick trip to France.
Buckwheat, foie gras, and eggplant at Le Prince Noir in Bordeaux.
…followed by local trout and brown butter…
…and celeriac and black truffles.
For dessert, omelette á la norvégienne for two.
A tidy cube, flambéed with brandy and split tableside.
Definitely putting this place on my need-to-return list.
The sweetest prawns and risotto at L’Atelier in Cognac…
…roast chicken with trumpet mushrooms at L’Yeuse.
And Bordeaux poached pears with speculoos cream at Bistro de Claude.
P.S. Second photo from top: a wall of eau de vie in Cognac! Wish I had something like that at home ^-^
