It’s been a lot of traveling for the past couple weeks. Cheffy has been busy with his training at Valrhona. Fiona and I’ve been busy traveling our way through cities and doing lots of r&d. Although, it has been a great adventure with generous amounts of sleep, food, drinks, and views; nothing beats the Pacific Northwest. No complaints though, we finished our trip at a Three Michelin Star Restaurant, Le Pre Catelan. The restaurant is situated in the middle of a park, a suburb in Bois de Boulogne. We were contemplating on taking public transit to get there and I’m glad we chose to Uber. The park was line with prostitutes 🤣 . The chateau had a very traditional French decor. I was turning my head in all directions and even gandered at the ceiling. In my opinion, it wasn’t that great of experience. The service was variable. We had a private table in a back room, which was delightful. I had a hard time determining who was the headwaiter, Maitre D, etc. The sommelier was late to pour the wine, every time. Cheffy had to step in. The food was served almost three ways each time. Meaning, that if the main protein was salmon, you’d get salmon prepared three different ways. Which was unique. Variety of tastes, textures and flavors were in each dish. The dessert, I wasn’t too impressed, possibility that I was expecting way too much from the best pastry chef in the world. All in all, a perfectly great meal can be just as good in a simple local restaurant.
“Working with my Cheffy, who taught me, wiLL aLways be etched in my mind.”
