We practically spent the day here, and our one night in Lausanne was primarily to go to this restaurant. We took the degustation menu, but also let greed get ahead of us and took their recommendations to also order the signature pork trotters and poulard de Bresse carved tableside. It was a very strong three Michelin-starred […]

PJ Eight (3 of 13) copy

I was invited to dinner at The Eight for a menu paired with Perrier Jouet champagnes Belle époque rosé 2006 and the premiere vintage 2007 – both my favourites of the night. Food and wines are very personal and I am not for sweet wines and champagne so these were perfect, citrus notes, slight bitterness, […]

Usually, table for one.

  I couldn’t be more happy and proud of my man who has reached the next level towards the culinary holy grail of two Michelin stars, after gaining the first within 8 months after opening his eponymous restaurant, working so hard and motivating the team to tirelessly put in 200% to maintain it for three […]

L’Assiette Champenoise is a gorgeous hotel with an exceptional breakfast and the wait staff at breakfast are lovely, friendly and speak fluent English. Everything comes to your table at the start, homemade butter, salted caramel, chocolate, confiture and caramelised condensed milk (dulce de leche)! You are spoilt for choice and probably go without lunch which is […]

A very belated post from our last trip back to France in September caught in the middle of the Air France strike which gave us an extra day in Paris along with the inconvenience, but I choose the positives about it all. So, the best meal of our trip was at 3 Michelin Starred L’Astrance […]

I’m back on 4 hour sleeps a night, answering emails, fixing photos and personal blogging after tapering down recently to avoid burnout. The new site design is on its way with a new logo to boot. We had brunch here months back and ordered more than enough for two. While the service was excellent and […]

My first 3* experience and actually the lightest of all the starred meals we enjoyed this summer. Passédat is in a league of his own with his simple, pristine Meditteranean cuisine. The signature bouillabaisse came in many courses, each better than the next, every course happy creatures of the sea distilled in a dish in […]

This is a brilliant very cinematic documentary on the man behind 3 Michelin-starred restaurant Sukiyabashi Jiro, the coveted 10-seat Tokyo restaurant is possibly the most expensive place to get the world’s best sushi. The sushi master Jiro shows the art of sushi, but above all, values, hardwork, traditions and the passion that drives one tirelessly. […]

Chef and I have our monthly date where we go to some place nice to try new things and get inspired (well, chef does and I’m just greedy). The food at two-starred Amber met all our expectations–my first and chef’s 3rd of 4th visit, The service unfortunately didn’t live up to its standards as I […]
