As a small business owner I have neither time nor money to waste. So having the luxury of a couple of hours free I headed up the hill to Peillon. One doesn't go to Les Plaisirs for a quick bite to eat. Romain, his mother and sister cook and serve food well worth waiting for. I had a terrine de lapin as a starter. One of my pet hates is chefs who liberally powder their plates with spices as "deco". Taking pieces of terrine and dipping them in the gremolata edging the plate was a revelation, the acidulated apples and roasted red peppers all added to the experience, though I could have done without the coleslaw.
The main of quails in the BEST OF BEST jus de cail was fab. The home grown veg on the side were simplicity itself and delicious.
I applaud Romains cuisine and his intelligence. For him there is there is no heading to the whole seller, he grows his own and is careful in what he sources. Also in putting a rince doigt scented with lemon peel on the table for the decerning amongst us who choose to nibble every shred of meat off the bones. Another of my pet hates are sachets of chemically imbibed synthetic wipes, YUK.
Merci Romain, c'était tout simplement un plaisir. A bientôt
