    Breakfast 2020!

    Lychee has a deeper taste which I like. The Governor prefers the Rambutan and I oblige. One of my preferred fruits is Mangosteen.

    Breakfast 2020!

    Well spotted, after a hard night I was a bit perplexed why they have Roquefort for breakfast and was straightened by the Governor that it is the Wensleydale & Cranberries. https://somerdale.com/product/somerdale-wensleydale-cranberries/ It is a delightful cheese that we both like and enjoy when home in London. We also like the Apricots version. Both are great for breakfast and afternoon tea.

    It is very buttery and creamy and gives you a guilt feeling and a stupid smile as you are savoring it. Unfortunately it is not my recipe and this is the first time I was served an elliptical Mille-Feuille instead ot the classic rectangle shape. Many classic Pastries have either evolved or became endangered pastries species like the Baba au Rhum and others. I like the Mille-Feuille jam version with Apricot jam but it fell out of grace and you cannot find it anymore unless very lucky. © Patisserie La Calèche Constantine

    Yes. we are in agreement. That's why I ordered my grilled Lobster without any marinade and used the Beurre Blanc as a dip which I barely used. Same with the boiled Lobster.

    Now it is Lobster week..... no more Pizze..... So we booked this fancy beach side restaurant to enjoy Oman Lobsters. The Oman Lobsters are small in size but the meat is sweet and juicy and very tasteful. The Main Lobsters are of course famous but they tend to travel with lot of lost luggage......I mean lost taste. Sp obviously, freshness beats fame. We started with sharing a Green salad Balsamic Vinaigrette and followed for my better half with a grilled Lobster marinated with Beurre Blanc Provençale which is

    Under the Bresaola and rocket blanket lies a bed of marinara sauce and mozzarella. I also cheated and had Parmesan shavings on top for good measure.

    LoL. Yes, I do. I sometimes count how many Eclairs fit in a tray to help me go to sleep....

    It's Italy then it's a Pizza. I feel rather sorry for the Italian as their food is so superior and they are the ones who taught France how to cook by non other than Catherine de’ Medici. OK, It is debatable as how much she was responsible for but let's go with the myth...... And all we have left for the masses is the double P which is Pasta and Pizza.......what a shame! 1- Starter Burrata with Cherry Tomatoes and Basil 2- Pizze - Marinara

    Apologies: The learned one corrected me as the restaurant was in Kos and not Crete. Unfortunately. I don't remember the name of the mountain village. We drove from the beach which I can't even remember the name and did not use a GPS just kept driving up the mountains to nowhere and ended around lunch time in this very small village on a Sunday after prayers. I have more pictures but they are in another house. I wonder if any Greek person can guess where I shot this picture with the mountain trees the ravine and the sea?

    Γεια σου (Ya Sou). Love Greece and Greek food......Uggh people as well outside Athens that is. If you wish to have a proper meal, go with a native. My better half and I were touring the mountains somewhere in Cretia and there was this little hamlet like the ones in postcards. We stopped for lunch in a picturesque restaurant overlooking the ravine and the mountains. Nobody spoke English or French or German or Italian and I speak Chinese dialect only after midnight. There was no way we could decipher the menu and seated at a big table were some locals and they
