La Bonne Franquette: Last Meal in France!

I worked with some lovely people over the past seven months, and they were kind enough to send me out on a high note. An extremely high note.  We traveled to Janvry, a tiny little village in the suburbs of Paris, and went to the restaurant La Bonne Franquette.  Eating at La Bonne Franquette was a reminder of how food is meant to be enjoyed, especially French food! Slowly, with good conversation, and good wine.  We diner for more than three hours, and that was with us skipping the cheese course and after dinner drinks. The food was really inspiring. The chef was entertaining. The ambiance was inviting. All in all, it was a great night and I am so glad that I left France on such a positive note!

First course...

Second Course...

To say that this fish was "perfectly cooked" is a gross understatement!  The skin was flaky, the flesh yielded without being mushy. (Cod on a bed of sliced mangoes, celery root puree, and other vegetables)

And last, but certainly not least, the Dessert Course!  The food was SO amazing that I was instantly skeptical of the desserts because I have been to many great restaurants with mediocre desserts; however, that skepticism was completely unwarranted, as the desserts were as incredible as the first two courses...
