Cousin Alice's Meal
Nelson: We had a chance to visit my cousin's place located right in London where she treated us to a fancy home-cooked meal. We started with some champagne and appetizers of smoked salmon and roe on top of baguette. It was deliciously salty and I had to control myself from eating too many!
The main meal was a French daube, which is a red wine stew. The meat was incredibly tender and delicious with a lot of flavour. I don't think I've had this before, but it was a revelation and I will have to try it again sometime. The salad was savoy cabbage and a crisper vegetable with porchetta. The salty porchetta really made this vegetable stand out and made it extra tasty.
Dessert was a molten chocolate lava cake she described as a Chamblie? cake. The luxurious chocolate was oozing out of the middle. Plus she had some fresh whipped cream to complement it! Fantastic!
Alice's husband and kids are so lucky to have such a great chef!
