American Food Writer in Paris
Oh to be a food writer in Paris.
Sweet chef and author, David Liebovitz, takes us along for dinner at Restaurant Alain Ducasse, a 3-star star experience of gastronomical splendor. Please don't eat the pictures.
Maybe it's the bread that arrives in a starched napkin along with a selection of butters. Maybe it's les grenouilles - frog legs accompanied by sorrel sauce. Or the stunning amuse bouches of lobster and caviar. The main plate. The palate cleansing salad. The assorted cheese. And the astonishing array of desserts that top off the meal. Whatever. In my ideal, this is dining in its finest hour.
Compliments of the chef!
