Speaking of the fiesta of Michelin in London, to mark the centenary of Great Britain guide. There is a superb decor in the taste of new art, a place of conservation, precise, playful and joyful, under the leadership of Sir Terence Conran, the designer/innkeeper who signed here one of the most beautiful achievements, more editor Michael Hamlyn, finally Chief Simon Hopkinson, that watch, in enlightened trio, on this preserved monument.
The meal? Well done, well seen, for a high number of guests, with catering aspects and a clear propensity to provide seasonal products. And the Saint-Jacques roasted (slightly stronger taste of the grill!) With its little mashed potatoes with black truffles, duck breast with Savoy pithivers (potatoes, cheese, onion in a light puff pastry) and spinach the cooking juices, then chocolate marquise with walnuts and kumquats.
A last word to greet the French wines served at noon: an exquisite champagne on the nose of brioche net of Claude Carre, a Cotes du Rhone white and red to bright nose of green pepper.
