Rollin Down the River Seine

Rolling down the River Seine on a Dinner cruise was so much fun. I got to see Paris from a completely different perspective. The food was delicious but there was one dish that stood out. It was highly imaginitive and was one of the most clever dishes I have ever seen.


{Hors D'Oeuvres: Prosciutto and Artichoke, Foie Grois and Apricots,
Tomoato, Mozzeralla, and Basil}



{Split Pea Puree, Tuna Tartare with a Candied Orange
and mung bean garnish}


{Prawns in a Saffron Consumee with Asparagus}



{Veal with a Squash and Arugula Salad}

{Dessert Tray}


The dessert below was the most inventive, craziest dish I've ever seen. It will definitely have you saying Ohhh La La. It was invented at the Ritz Paris Escoffier Hotel in Place Vendome in Paris. (My culinary school alma mater). It was a milk chocolate ball dusted with decorative glitter and on the inside raspberry, heavenly goodness with chocolate mousse. But you have to watch the video to see how they did it. So clever, so simple yet amazing. They used a hot raspberry sauce reduction to melt the top part of the chocolate while still leaving the rest intact. Ohhhh just thinking about that dessert makes my mouth water.
