so NOT KFC....

I just got an email inviting me to a special dinner at a local restaurant that as a treat Mrs G and I have taken each other to on occasion.

all the talk of KFC I had to share this ( and no, we won't be going... not when you see the per person cost, excluding wine, on the last line. )

I hope some of you enjoy reading...

Menu à la truffe noir

La mousse de céleri pomme et foie gras de canard à la truffe

Le cromesqui de pied de cochon aux champignons et à la truffe

La vichyssoise de haricots de Soisson à la truffe, sacristin au lard de Colonata

La truffe noire cuite entière en chausson au foie gras, rampon et coeur de carciofinis à l'huile de noisette

La noix de coquilles Saint-Jacques poêlée, polenta crémeuse à la châtaigne et à la truffe

Le bar de ligne grillé à l'huile d'olive de Crète, coulisde poireaux et émulsion à la truffe

Le magret d'oie de Bresse (Miéral) rôti, atriaux et pot-au-feu de cuisse confite à la truffe

You're right, I'll take her to that dinner. I mean after all, she must be tired hanging around you all day long and eating Ramen noodles.

The price doesn't surprise me. These apples are terribly expensive in the winter

..ehmm, no....wai wait a minute. I didn't do the math with island_girl. On second thought, I'll retract the offer but you can still go with Porsch.

Re: so NOT KFC....

Ask for the roast pork option. That way, the bloody pig won't be able to sniff out any more of those God-damned expensive truffles.

I was going to make a comment about the Granny Smiths, but not that one.

I love how classy the menu sounds (to a native English speaker's ear)... until you see "Granny Smiths" in the middle of it.

But they are obviously viewed as something of a delicacy in Switzerland!
