So I am sitting here writing this from our lovely hotel room in Chablis, France. The birds are tweeting in the trees, lovely green trees, outside. Its slightly chilly, about 19 degrees C, but the sun is shining and the air is free of dust. All good. But I thought I better get some thoughts down about last week, when Stu and I visited two restaurants during the Jumeirah restaurant week in Dubai. That is before the wonderful food and wine we are having here in France makes me forget all about it.
The restaurant week runs for…a week obviously, and is intended as a way to encourage you to try new restaurants in the group. Offering a set menu for a special price, excluding grape beverages sadly, the idea is to highlight a few of the dishes on offer in each case.
So to start we visited Blue Flame at the Jumeirah Creekside Hotel. Essentially what appears to be an upmarket steakhouse the restaurant also offers cooking classes where you get to make your dinner and then eat it, along with a glass of bubbly. Nice idea. I started with a delicious Carpaccio served with iced pear slices and Gorgonzola ice-cream (sorry no pic). I then had the Salmon main course followed by a delicious although rather large Creme Brulee. Yum yum.
I shall be back with some French food updates later this week…a bientot 🙂
