Hmmm. Guess I could have posted everything together, couldn’t I? Silly me!
Seven: duck confit basteeya, green plum, turnip, buckwheat:
Seven Point One (because this was an extra):
Eight: squab foi gras endive:
Nine: This was to replace the beef since Dan and I don’t eat red meat. I wish I could remember what it was. Squab, maybe? With baby corn, onion and green almond if the other ingredients that were with the wagyu beef are the same for this dish:
Next up … desserts!:
Ten: grapefruit granita, rose parfait
Eleven: pear, white chocolate mousse, hazelnut:
Twelve: mignardises (a bit blurry, but oh well … by this time I think my brain wasn’t functioning at all!):
Thirteen: granola for the next morning:
Thus ends our evening at Aziza. Fanciest meal I’ve ever had!
tai snapper, cucumber, mountain yam, bottarga
… this is razor clam, rice cake and broccoli. I asked our server what the flowers were and we were told they are chrysanthemum if I’m remembering correctly.
Okay, this is it for now, but this was our fourth dish: amberjack, bamboo shoot, black garlic, orange & shiso
I forgot, I’m sorry to say, to take a photo of our second course, which was a quail egg cooked to perfection, sitting on chicken crackling, with pickled onion. But here is the third — coconut panna cotta, caviar and brioche
Last night Dan and I met up with my brother and sister-in-law for an incredible meal. Just look at this starter soup … asparagus with peas and lemon verbena. Amazing, and beautiful too!
And of course if we are in Arches National Park we had better have an arch somewhere in here! This was taken at sunset. That arch is big, in case you aren’t familiar with this place. Maybe I’ll put up the photo I have of a man standing in it so you get the idea … we’ll see.
