We're nearing the end of our stay in Paris, at the point where we've
counted up the remaining days and planned visits to our favourite
. It's a good way to remember the places we truly like.
Dinner last night at Le Caveau du Palais was particularly satisfying.
The woman who runs it is fantastic and an absolute terror, but she
must have liked us because she gave us a nice big comfortable table.
The rabbit terrine was great, all white meat nicely flavoured with
some fresh herbs. I'm not kidding about the best confit de canard in
the city; cooked to an inch of its crispy life with fantastic pomme
sarladais. A lovely tarte fine du pommes, some aged calvados, and a
long slow stroll home along the banks of the Seine. Life can be very
good in Paris.
