04/08/2017 A luncheon at La Cigogne in Soyaux
Maximum temperature 25C, minimum 16C. 8 km/h SW winds with 17 km/h gusts. Dry.
Arriving at the restaurant
Beautiful views in every direction...
The owner always walks out to welcome her guests.
Amuuse-bouche, plus a small melon drink not photographed.
I missed the photo on the second course, but Nigel had Cabillaud on a bed of courgettes for mains..
and I had stuffed chicken breast with parsnips and potatoes
Strawberry millefeuille for desert, and of course wine and cafe noir..
In the gardens is this waterfall with goldfish hiding under the bank.
Loved this pottery, there were several of them and I suspect they are lights.
Looking back through the tunnel...
Which many, many years ago was a mushroom farm growing them for export so I believe.
Nearly back home driving through Taponnat-Fleurignac. The new boulangerie on the left which opened quite recently.
