Day 19    

   There was some confusion about that dates and it turned out that she was in the North, in her farmhouse and not about to pop out of the door in Paris.

We went to a little restaurant because we were starving and decided to treat ourselves to at least one nice meal out. Bertrand was nice enough to offer a bottle of 1996 Château de la Tour, a Bordeaux Supérieur.

   I started with the 95F formula of an entrée and dessert, curry chicken with rice and a crème brûlée. The curry was alright but France being the land of delicate sauces, it wasn't as spicy as I like.
   Nelly had Andouillette with a little salad and a slice of what looked like hash browns, followed by a crème brûlée.
   Bertrand choose a Blanc et Noir, white and dark sausages with the same salad and potatoes that Nelly had, but followed with a mousse of chocolate and crème anglaise. The food was just fine, not exceptional. The wine was good but paying $20 a bottle for something you could find in a store for around $7.00 was a bit much.
