Food, Glorious Food

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
