Snapshots from in and around Bordeaux ^-^
…and darker nights.
Rose sorbet on a Tuesday stroll.
Pots and pans…
…for a dozen macarons.
Nice and slow.
Chocolate, custard, and berries. Lemon cream at Hostellerie De Plaisance.
The only “rule” I made for myself this visit…
…was to eat oysters every single day. Marennes-Oléron oysters.
Grilled sausages. La Fine de Claire oysters. Suze and champagne in Cognac.
More La Fine de Claire. Steamed, with green peas and Aquitaine caviar.
At Intercontinental Bordeaux – Le Grand Hôtel, bread and seaweed butter. Caviar and oysters.
On the left, Arachon ‘Perles de L’Impératrice’….
…and on the right, oysters from the Medoc.
Must have crépinettes for balance. Hot! Savory.
Escargots de Loupiac braised with red wine, parsley and lardons. Layered with potatoes.
And a classic Omelette Norvégienne.
Back to bed.
Till next time ^-^
