Lovely place, lovely lunch

What started us on our most recent restaurant discovery was a recommendation from friend Rosemary, who had enjoyed lunch with her family at Domaine de Monrecour.  On Tuesday, Jan and I visited the place with friends Roy and Helen, and … Continue reading

Roast pork? Sweet!

At the start of the month, my wife Jan and I tried the new take-out service from Daglan’s own lovely restaurant, Le Petit Paris.  I described the event in the posting “A restaurant comes to us,” on April 2. Yesterday … Continue reading
