La Rochefoucauld Chateau in the background of the restaurant
Pont du château de la Rochefoucauld 17th century vaulted arch bridge.
La Rochefoucauld Chateau.
The castle's humble beginning dates back to year 980, from a wooden camp that was built by Foucauld on a rocky spur. The word 'rock', in fact, translates to 'Roche' in French. A square keep was then constructed by his son at the same site in 11th century.
Not on the menu, but this was like a gazpacho cold soup and was delicious.
I forgot to take a photo of Le Turbo!!!
I forgot a photo of La Burrata as well - an Italian soft cheese.
Notre glace Chocolate/Pralin, and a candle for me to blow out. I am glad it was only one and not 80!!
Nigel bought me the biggest bunch of flowers I have ever seen, this is half....
and this is the other half.
The same as above but from a different angle.
Nigel also bought me a charcoal sketch of Wild Dogs which is superb. Once framed that just may appear in another blog
