Last night I was treated to an EVENT! A true dining experience. I was taken to the famous Claudes restaurant in Sydney. It is not unusual to have to book 1 month in advance. We were on the waiting list - and we got in. What a mouth watering adventure from start to finish.
Before you even enter intrigue is created. The entrance to the restaurant is a closed blue door with a bell ~only those with a reservation can enter.
The evening started with Champagne and finished with delight.
The menu was a degustation one ~ which according to Wikipedia is a culinery term meaning " a careful, appreciative tasting of various foods". Usually this can mean being left a little disappointed and a little hungry, not the case at Claudes. It was a dining extravagance.
Come and taste with me...
