We're back at Les Boucheries for a leisurely Saturday lunch.
We begin with the plate of 6 appetisers - going clockwise, from top left, seared scallops on carrot puree, truffled pasta, Escargots de Bourgogne, pork terrine with poached shiitake, oysters with grapefruit and salmon roe and Gruyere Souffle.
Our next course is a treat from the kitchen:
Sesame seed crusted tuna loin and cucumber & orange spaghetti with red pepper coulis - a lovely dish for summer
For mains we order the rib eye for two -
it is served with pommes frites, roasted shallots, and a choice of sauces, Béarnaise or red wine - we ended up with a bit both sauces. As usual, the rib eye was cooked perfectly - well flavoured tender beef.
