Lunch at Château Eza - the Curly Whiskers


The menu. We chose 'the Prince's Menu' and this is what we ate:

Butternut pumpkin soup with aged Parmesan sprinkled with olive oil.


A slice of Ciabiatta rubbed with garlic and topped with marinated sardines and young salad leaves.


Sautéed prawns atop a gateau of blettes (sugar beet) - note the curled whiskers in the photo.

An individual basket of caramelised apple with toast flavoured with orange flowers.

And a wonderful bottle of white wine and I forget what it was. This is the only dish of the four that I photographed - proof, if needed, as to how good the food and wine was.

We finished with coffee served with delicious petits fours. And then our wonderful, generous, dear divine Peter from Paris treated us to this wonderful lunch. Thank you, dear Peter.

That menu sounds fantastic. I would be excited to try everything you named.

By the way, I'm headed to a gourmet feast at the art museum tomorrow (Sunday). I hope I get to try equally exciting dishes as you've featured here.

Now that places Peter in a category BEYOND divine I think! When I saw the flutes of champagne, I should have known he was somewhere close by! :)

It is at times like this that I CURSE the fact that I'm allergic to wheat.

What a gorgeous composition! I've enjoyed this culinary adventure with you, Jilly.

Very creative menu. Thanks to Peter from us as well to open the door to your sharing this experience with us.

This dish looks vaguely obscene LOL. can't say that I'm a fan of fancy dining. You seem to pay a lot of money for very little food.
