    Nothing Minuscule about it Smog, and as it waas classical fare you can imagine it was rather heavy all, I for opne couldnt even finish my sweetbreads and wasnt really that interested in even trying the tiramisu anymore, just too much for on a luncheon!

    Nice Marco,
    great food there. What’s your evaluation of Bocuse’s VGE soup? I had that one decades ago at his resto near Lyon.
    Cheers Chef.

    Hi Jp, well I must say i loved it, what i loved most was the pastry, for the soup itself it was deliscious but then again with such amounts of truffle in it, what do you expect?
