... also taught us how we should have been tasting. Take the glass with the bowl in the hand to warm the glass and the spirit for a while (particularly the first tasting in a cold glass). Put this behind your back and forget about it until it warms. Only then will the Armagnac have come alive and be able to provide the true expressions you can savour.

Crème anglaise à la vaille bourbon
Amandes effílées et caramel truffée
(Truffle floating islands, vanilla and bourbon custard, slivered almonds and caramel truffles)

This was also complimented with an amuse bouche of creamy parsnip soup (also with truffle!). The soup was smooth and silky, the ravioli and foie gras topped with a sliver of parmesan and truly melt in the mouth, the Zander which is a Pike-Perch fresh ...
