French Politics: Fouquet’s

I could definitely enjoy a good foie gras here, don’t you think?SAM_1347This was probably what former French President Nicholas Sarkozy thought before booking Fouquet’s for the evening of May 6th 2007, to celebrate his victory in the presidential elections. I agree, totally.SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURESOn top of very appropriate plating styles, the styles of a sophisticated Parisian venue, foie gras was truly excellent: smooth, tasty and combined with the sweet of purple figs made me crave a glass of Sauternes. The wine list has certainly a lot to offer, naturellement.
