A fairly quiet day before travelling to PARIS tomorrow.
We walked around the town of Amboise a little then Paul tortured me with MORE stairs, this time up the Pagode de Chantaloup – small rickety low headroom spiral timber stairs in the heat! About 34oC today!
All this to earn a special dinner – at Domaine des Hauts de Loire – a 2 Michelin star restaurant in a 4 star hotel about 20 minutes from our hotel.
Amazing place, amazing food – see pictures.
|They were not lying or under-stating!|
|only a couple of the 7 levels, ouch!|
|Asparagus and spanner crab entree|
|Chicken and foie gras with 'pea' sauce - |
this is a plate not a bowl, the food is not 'swimming'
|Pre dessert taster!|
|Chocolate Sphere with caramelised bananas:|
two types of chocolate mousse inside, yummy
