New season, new food. It’s time for the 2015 Autumn Tasting Menu at La Mouette. And my word, that Chef Henry and team are showing off. It not just what’s seasonal, and delicious – but it FEELS like winter. When I read this menu, I actually wanted to go and put on a beanie, boots and a scarf. Ok, I’m rambling.
