Lunch at Alain Ducasse's Louis XV - a Perfect Risotto


There are three choices of menu at lunch time.

We chose the Club Dejeuner de Saison in which you have a first course, main course and dessert. There are three choices in each.

There is also a cheese course before the dessert and before it all we were served a beautiful presentation of paper-thin vegetables served in a glass with a delicious dip made of olives.

There is a choice of at least 20 breads - this is not just lunch, this is a theatrical spectacle.

My first course.

Risotto à la courge rouge et oignon caramélisé, des côtes de romaine.

Risotto with pumpkin and caramelized onion, Romaine lettuce. I can't begin to tell you how delicious this was!

Tomorrow: Lynda's first course. And the wine.

Jilly I'm so glad you did this, it's an experience worth living at least once in your life. The table is perfectly dressed and your first course looks ever so promising. I'm there with you and enjoying every sensorial bit of it!

This sounds (and looks) heavenly. What a treat for the senses.

When we have an elegant meal like this, I let Julie handle the check. I enjoy things more if I do not know what they cost.
