Food can take you on a journey, if the cook has an appreciation for flavours. When you visit a restaurant, the chef can add ambiance to the experience, making the journey all that much more exquisite. Chef Franck Dangereux, is a chef I’ve discovered and grown to know, where the gastronomic experience is different every meal.
I’m not sure if you have seen an Oliver Twist production. When I get excited by good food, I remember vividly, the scene as the cast bursts into singing Food glorious food! Only for them, it was as they could close their eyes and imagine the food, not what was really before them.
This Châteauneuf-du-Pape was commensurate to the day, the weekend and the week! I didn’t choose to celebrate with it because it is a well known French wine from the Rhône Valley. I chose it because I wanted the oldest vintage I had in my wine collection, and it just so happened to be the bottle that meets that very criteria.
