Le petit bouchon – Trouville – France
All for starters
- Laurent Guinet
If at first you could think of a Lyon inhabitant lost in Trouville, the name of little cork is perhaps more reference to the float of fishing rods that we dined with perseverance at the edges of the docks at the time when we had this patience. What we will find in our old age …
Or is it the impressive list of wines and spirits à la carte that gave birth to this appellation? The current owners are not the founders, I leave you in doubt until the resolution of this enigma thrilling.
The chef, Laurent Guinet, worked at Frédéric Lesieur Spinnaker? That’s a good point. You can find this article here.
Classic and good fish soup as input. Rouille (mayonnaise version) with mustard seeds. Mackerel rillettes are mellow. The Espelette chilli agrees to raise the whole. Everything is fine.
If scallops are well cooked, quenelles mashed potatoes with truffle oil are barely warm. Too bad because they had good taste.
The hake fillet is well cooked but it is the assembly of taste that is a little wobbly. The hazelnut crust is nice, but related to cheese, on fish, it’s risky. The addition of Pak Choi cabbage, Espelette pepper (the chef likes) and the sorrel cream on the side is a bit too much.
Very nice plate for a nice dessert. The only worry when you buy beautiful plates like these is that the slightest chipping is unacceptable. You have a very beautiful 3/4 in the photo.
We will notice a pretty cellar, with among others a selection of gins.
And a good Saint-Véran Domaine Innocenti
