The (very) private table of Kinette Gautier

The internet link is a sign: label – la belle (the pretty one in French) !
A mix of elegance, the hat woman has the extravagance of the Queen of England regarding her hats and the energy of Gilbert Becaud.
Her husband cooks in this very private place for clients invited by word of mouth, more than by the media, which in any case gives no time to things out of the norm.
The ideal group consist of 8 to 12 persons and a budget equivalent to a one Michelin star restaurant, where guests can drink great wines they can all bring.
I attended yesterday evening and had a good and fun time, with, of course, fine food: Scallops, foie gras, oysters in aspic, cake with spices and Veuve Cliquot brut, an excellent Silex 2002 from Daguenau and Chateau Sansonnet 2004 at the level of some of the best classified growths from Saint Emilion (is there still a classification?)

Kinette will start a blog and I hope that she will speak her mind. She should also join Facebook.
