Despite the chilly and sometimes rainy weather yesterday, we managed to get in a little sight-seeing with mom. But the big fun of the day came last evening when we went to Au Pied de Cochon. What a treat. Everything was so perfectly prepared and concocted, I'd go back daily if I could afford it. I convinced Serge to get the specialty - Pigs foot stuffed with foie gras. Mom and I ordered the foie gras (of which they have 9 preparations) and helped Serge finish his. We still couldn't finish it. (Notice how Serge's plate is way more than both our plates.) I would've taken the rest home in a doggy bag, but that's still viewed as tacky here, so I didn't. It was so impressive though, that the lady at the next table asked if she could take a picture of Serge's plate.
At the end, we asked the waiter what kind of cuisine we had eaten was. (Try explaining that last bit to a student learning English) He said simply, "Terroir." Which is like country cuisine from the local region.
Today we're off winetasting in the countryside.
