Oysters tasting strongly of the Jersey shore bringing back memories of my childhood.  Both in a good way.

The best foie gras ever.  It was like drinking unicorn tears off an angel’s taint.

The leader in the clubhouse for tastiest dish of Walkabout 2013.  Coquille St. Jacques in a cream sauce the makes all other cream sauces retire in shame.

Perfectly cooked duck, the best potato gratin ever and a nice and interesting celery root purée.

A very nice cod, lentils and the same celery root purée.

 

And now an assortment of our everyone’s desserts.
