Last night I was invited to a French gastronomy restaurant, Pierre Orsi. I was surprised with the Decor from the outside, I felt like Christmas, party time. As we walked in to the restaurant, a guy in old fashion costume opened the door for you. Then we were welcomed by well-mannered staffs and they guided us to our table. I was so in love with the decor inside, elegant and effortless. Ps-i also in love with their toilet, omg!! What I admired the most was I felt like home, family dinner. And at the end of the dinner we got a visit from Mr. Orsi, the Chef!!!!
Talking about menu, we didn’t have to take one hour to think what we are going to chose because they made their menu so simple yet what they suggested were sublime, Mmmmm, I was so spoiled.
Salmon tartare was served while we were choosing our dishes… That was delicious.
I am amazed the foods were presented beautifully and so simple, clean. I know there were lots of work behind those simple dishes. By the way the taste were magical; lots of flavors. Gosh!!! I really appreciated my meals.
Here are some pictures I got from my last night dinner.
Beef bourguignon is one of French traditional dishes. It needs time to marinate meat and slow cook. I could say it’s so delicious. By the way, Veggies bourguignon is quite delicious as well, I have to admit that. The ingredients are the same as beef bourguignon but you replace meat with veggies. In my recipes I used ancien vegetables… I actually made vegetable in the oven, I had so much left over so I turned it into viggies bourguignon. I just added some red wine and laurel, salt, sugar and black pepper then some cooking time.
Here we need
half of pumpkin
1 celery rave
garlic, shallots, olive oil
Bourgogne red wine
2tbp of wheat flour
sugar ( I used it to adjust the taste of wine )
salt, black pepper
thyme , laurel, 2 cloves
How to make it
Pre heat the oven to maxi for 15 mins
I cut my veggies in pieces added salt, black pepper, olive oil, garlic, shallots, thyme, laurel all in one then seasoning as your taste and put in 30 minutes in the oven. ( you can enjoy your veggies like that and add some balsamique venegar or you can continue to the step 3 )
Ready for the oven mmmm
first option grilled veggies
Transfer the veggies in a hot pan, stir with some olive oil then add 1 or 2 tbp of wheat flour ( corn flour). Keep stirring to cook flour with veggies.
then added red wine, keep stirring. You can add some veggie broth if you have or water. keep stirring about 5 mins then lower the heat to the lowest.
now you can add some sugar , then cover the pan and let it cook for 20 mins. Ps- keep your eyes on it cuz it can burn so keep stirring from time to time. you can cook longer if you think it’s necessary.
Such a beautiful day that I had a chance to go to Flee market which is just right in front of my apartment. I walked around then a stand which full of mushrooms caught my eyes. I grabbed some cep mushrooms to make as side dish with my grilled chicken. This would be wonderful. Mmmm
It’s so French, lol… Cèpe persillé…
Here I needed
200g of cep mushrooms
Half brunch of persil ( minced)
2 cloves of garlic ( minced)
Chicken cooking sauce (Since I also grilled my chicken, I use some chicken cooking sauce for my cep mushrooms recipes)
A pin of salt and black pepper for seasoning
How to make it
Cleaned up mushrooms and throw few second in hot boiling water to clean the dirt from them, then rinse with cold water.( advice from the seller lol)… cut as you desire then set aside.
Heat a frying pan wait until it turns hot then put chicken cooked sauce in. Next add minced garlic and persil. stir well until you smell fragrance from the mixture then put your mushrooms in. stir well, salt and pepper. stir again for couple of minutes the voila.
Jacket is one of my favorite items, whenever I have chance I grab one for me. As usual I love going to the market, there’s a stand of fabric which has so many choices with reasonable price that everyone can effort.
I got 2m of mixed wool other week; I didn’t even know what to do with it. And finally here it comes again!!!! A JACKET !!!!! It looks stunning, simple yet modern. I love it… It has 2 pockets to keep my hands warm 😉
here is some of the the pictures which I am so proud to share.
I wore it in two styles, this one with a big elastic bell with white metal detail from Mogan. It looked quite cool and elegant.
The second one is so free, just like another xxl Jacket…
The last picture will be credited to my sister who made this beautiful black dress for me. She own a Tailor shop in Cambodia.
Do whatever you love and love whatever you do. keep smiling… Please, enjoy your Sunday. :-*
