Le Cinq (Four Seasons George V)

I have been hesitating quite a bit to what to write about the last night’s dinner in Le Cinq . The talent of Phillipe Legendre, who obtained his three stars in a very short period of time, is undeniable, but on the other hand, there was nothing inspirational… From such a…

Sud – Ouest Monceau

Sud – Ouest Monceau

If you search for a “hidden treasure” in Paris only known by the locals, here is my insider tip. It is a place that is strangely not listed in any important guides (I checked Zagat and Gault Millau-it is not there), yet it probably serves the best cassoulet in Paris.…

Apicius

The two stars Apicius is one of those gastronomic restaurants that made me fall in love with the art of “haute cuisine”. First time I dined there was for my birthday party a long time ago, when the restaurant was still located on avenue de Villiers in the 17th. I…

Macarons au Foie Gras by Pierre Herme

The highly anticipated Pierre Herme’s creations for the holidays season: “Macaron chocolate and foie gras” (the red one) and “Macaron Ă©glantine, figue foie gras” (the golden one).
