La Gourmandise au Village Gourmand


Everyday the traiteur/restaurant, Village Gourmand, has a special.   My son and I noticed that Saturday’s special was duck leg.  Okay!  Saturday was sorted 🙂  We drafted Le Parret and it was a date.


I decided on the assorted entree plate of salmon, marinated vegetables, quiche, heart of palm and ratatouille.  Mah-velous!  Then for my main course, the melt in your mouth duck leg confit with a galette of spinach and potatoes.   Yes Lord!


Brian couldn’t resist the sound of rare rumsteak with skin on, hand cut potatoes and a judicious spinkle of fleur de sel.  I had to sneak a little bite!


M. Parret had the vol au vent.  Perfect!


Of course we had a little wine.  We mistakenly ordered the Petit Chablis, thinking that was what we had the last time.  It was okay but not quite up to the level of the cuisine.  It was the Cote St. Jacques we were thinking of.  Oh well, next time.


Chocolate fondant with vanilla ice cream and raspberry sauce.

    You really have reintroduced duck as a way of life to me. For me I would have it once a year, but it seems so readily available over there and it’s making me think completely differently!
