Chocolate mousse with citron du Pays
(This post comes with a health warning as there are videos of the cutest little pet piggy 🐷 snuffling around, plus a couple of very chilled out dawgs so your heart may explode with love. You have been warned. )
4 meals over the past month at @lesbacchanales_vence where chef and generally lovely person @christodufau has altered the style of cooking from my last visits a couple of years ago and in such a good way.
I say ‘lovely guy’ because he really is. Well known and well liked throughout the industry and especially in Denmark where he worked for 9 years. I mean (gratuitous #humblebrag coming up), I had posted on Instagram stories that Les Bacchanales was my next meal while on the way to the meal and while I was sat enjoying the meal, Rene Redzepi messages me ..... “Please say hi to Christophe from me”.
So I think it’s clear that there is a lot of love for the guy.
The food is delicious, as it has always been, and designed to be shared with friends, hence why I kept coming back with friends. Christophe is now cooking outside using a wood burning oven and I think I saw a smoker in the back of this very rustic al fresco kitchen right next to the restaurant which exists on a leafy patio between the house and a kitchen garden.
Miss Eva, the pet pig will wander around the place weaving through the tables and the legs of the dinners. You’ll hear her coming.
Highly recommended if you are on the Côte d’Azur. Go and spend a leisurely lunchtime enjoying the good food, wine and the company of Miss Eva...oh and Christophe of course !😬
