Remembering the last year of having suffered so much and hoping the next year to be better, my friend and I appreciated two bottles of gracious wine on Christmas day. Hermitage (Syrah) Pernand-Vergelesses (Chardonnay)
I had poulet rôti with the chicken from the countryside. Started to share it with four people, then two more people joined. It was only one chicken but sufficient to enjoy fully for six people. I think I was most satisfied during the moment because there were three bottles of Burgundy wine. Chicken in French […]
A French girl, Marine, baked one of her favourite cakes. It was ‘whoopie’. Although the whoopie is the US origin, she told me that she used to have baked the cake as she liked it a lot. The cake she baked today looked quite different from the images that I searched on google, but I […]

The courses: Assorted raw Amberjack slices Salad with basil pesto Lightly grilled monkfish liver sauced with red-current-and-wine jam Grilled monkfish with […]

We had easy days during our stay in Jeju island thanks to Jeju friend’s sensitive care. The dinners: Guests were chiefly Jeju settlers from […]
Had hors-d’oeuvre with some rice cake and Kimchi, Started with thin steak, then thick steak, with braised cabbage and grilled sliced potatoes. The beef was excellent and the ten-year-aged wine, Chateau Sergant 2007, was wonderous with the meat. After eating the meat, I was more than sufficiently set, yet kept on having sweet potato roasted […]
