Lunch @ Les Boucheries Parisiennes

There's a new menu at Les Boucheries Parisiennes and we're having a difficult time deciding on what to eat. Having managed to select soup to begin, Paalo decided he had made enough decisions and left the rest of the meal in the capable hands of the Chef.

First Course:

Cauliflower soup, cod brandade, herb oil, caviar

Cauliflower and salt cod, this obviously is my selection. The intense flavour of the brandade is softened by sweet creaminess of the soup

French Onion Soup

A simple presentation but the flavours ring true.

2nd Course:

Beef carpaccio, frisee lettuce, asparagus, parmesan cheese, truffle dressing

Meltingly soft beef, clean well-defined flavours.

3rd course:

leek and fennel tart, caramelised scallops, sweet corn puree

so delicious it deserves a close up!

The use of fennel seeds in the pastry was a brilliant touch to bring in the flavour of aniseed. As always the scallops were picture perfect - plump and sweet and just cooked.


For mains:

Duck breast, zucchini fritter with oxtail ravioli, eggplant salad

Beautifully pink duck breast served on a warm salad of sautéed eggplant pieces.

Rabbit pie with wild mushrooms, goats cheese mashed potato, baby asparagus

Underneath that puffed lid sits the rabbit pie. Adding goat cheese to the potato is a clever idea, it brings a touch of sharpness to the rich buttery puree.

Cheese:

No dessert but who really needs it when you have such a fantastic array of cheese on offer.
