Swissotel Kolkata Neotia Vista presented Gout De France - Good France at Cafe Swiss on 18th March 2015, presenting the best of French Gastronomic delicacies curated by Executive Chef Pranay Kumar Singh.
The buffet spread with the likes of Smoked Salmon and Avocado Verrine, the irresistible French Onion Soup, the legendary Lobster and Seafood Thermidor, Asparagus and Ham Ballotin, Chicken Fricasse, Wild Camambert with wild mushroom, Vegetable Tian, Ratatouille were more than enough to drag people out of their current ongoing Cricket World Cup fever and crash on to the Good France celebration.
The traditional French Onion Soup was incredible with beef stock and flavours of sorted onions.
The Gigot D'Agneau was another exceptional dish with lamb which was marinated a day before and slow cooked in fresh herbs like rosemary and thyme at a low temperature for an extended period of time, giving the dish the softness and robust flavours.
Seafood Thermidor as always remains my all time favourite. Seafood baked in white sauce and cheese combination leaves me mesmerized every time.
The dessert section was equally exotic with French delicacies like Opera pastry, Mini Eclairs with chocolate hazelnut filling, Classic Charlotte Cake in mango flavour, Creme brulee, Cherry Clafoutis, Apple Tarte Tatin etc.
Since pictures speak more than a thousand word, we captured a gist of the evening that is posted below. Of course for a culinary sedation one has to make a bee line at Cafe Swiss.
We at Kolkata Food Bloggers thank the Swissotel and their team for their kind invitation at the Good France celebration.
