Mid-Summer Tasting Menu at La Mouette

And they have done it again, La Mouette have changed their menu and changed lives. Ok, well, at least my life. It is really great, I had a sneak peak of it at their annual Twitterati Party, which was better than I could ever have imagined. Well done to Mari, Henry and the entire team for pulling off such a successful event, the biggest and best yet. I look forward to the next one.

In the meantime, go check out the new menu. It is très superbe mes amies!
