Montpellier: Dinner @ (2*) Le Jardin des Sens

My favourite meal of my summer holidays. A three part amuse bouche, parmesan tomato emulsion, tuna millefeuille and tomato water. Simple and refreshing before our dégustation menu started to arrive. We did our soaring cholesterols a favour and skipped the foie gras course after days of overeating.

Le hommad à l’orientale: Lobster carpaccio with coconut milk and white coco beans emulsion, a nice Asian touch with the the Vietnamese spring roll wrap

Red mullet on a bed of melon tabouleh, Have to say I enjoyed the tabouleh more than the mullet!

My favourite dish of the evening: flower of courgette stuffed with scampi served with summer truffles, scampi roasted à l’orange. I would have this again and again, if I could.

Desserts were divine and a great way to wrap up the evening. Another wonderful dinner and I overate as usual.
