Summer Party in Côte d’Azur?


Our Summer Party was held on July 30, 2011 in the private room of La Tours d’Argent.

The blue carpet, luxurious chandeliers, and lovely table setting give us the impression of attending a wedding party.


With the foresight of the staff, comfortable chairs were arranged to one side of the room for us to relax and wait until all members were present.


In this showcase is displayed a bottle of brandy that was produced in 1788.


This large and gorgeous arrangement of lily and delphinium gave off such a fragrant scent.


Here is the register book which we all signed.


The first dish was “Flowery Marché on the Waterfront” which included sweet shrimp which seemed to melt in our mouths.


Spontaneous gasps of pleasure were heard at the sight of the colorful tones of summer vegetables of the second dish which was ”Terrine of Seasonal Vegetables.”


“Balmain Parmentier Cold Potato Soup” was a very mellow Vichyssoise.


For the main dish, we had “Caneton Marco Polo.”  The young duckling was tender and mild and was the gem of the course.

Excitement and tension took hold of the moment as the cloche food covers were removed in unison at the signal of the French General Manager.


For dessert, we had “Citron Vert Chiboust.” The feather like ornament is dried pineapple.

We could enjoy the harmony of creamy cake and refreshing lime ice cream.


At the end, we had small sweets together with tea or coffee.  We thoroughly enjoyed the lovely and delicious French cuisine to our heart’s content.
