It almost became a joke — my constantly taking pictures of the food before we ate it. But, we were served up some mighty good looking food throughout our 5 day visit and I thought I’d share some of the highlights!
On our first day, about 2:00 in the afternoon, we all declared that we could not walk another step without food. We ducked into a little bistro not far from the Lover’s Bridge and had the best brunch ever!
This was what I ordered — an egg over easy on a hamburger with pomme frites!
And if you want to get served fast — always order the special of the day — in this case is was the roasted chicken!
Thanks to JB, each of us got this lovely dessert plate with a small sampling of a number of wonderful desserts — including a pistachio macaron and a cup of Cappucino!
All we took a picture of from Sunday night’s dinner was the dessert — and it was fabulous! I guess we were just too tired from our first day in Paris!
Following our wonderful visit at Evelyne’s Studio, we went to Versaille for lunch!
Our first course was this polenta salad layered with roasted red peppers and a french cheese — scrumptious!
And dessert was a beautiful apple tart.
The outside of the restaurant at Versaille.
It is a converted barn of some sort — notice the original stone flooring, the hay bins on the side wall, the contemporary glass hanging lamps and in the distance, a marble statue! I highly recommend it and riding bicycles around the lakes at Versaille after lunch.
Monday night we had a wine tasting before dinner at a small bistro in our neighborhood. It was a lesson all about Burgundy (or was it Bordeaux?)! Note the small slices of salami and the radishes — delish!
We traveled to Guy and Ann Marie DeLorme’s house between Paris and Lyon for cocktail hour!!!! Will be posting pics of her wonderful house and his great wine cellar next.
This was my neighbor’s salad — I wish I had taken a picture of my foie gras, which was served with toasted spice bread and a pear sauce!!!!
Dessert after dinner!
Another great appetizer — this time on a dinner cruise on the Seine!
Veal medallions and fresh vegetables — with a presentation that the sauce really makes!
My dessert trio is a little melted as we went to the upper deck to take pictures! But it was great none the less!
