Today, at Maison de la Truffe:

- gazpacho (an excellent variation, heavy on the bell pepper and served with a large slice of good bread topped with chèvre, diced yellow bell pepper and mild onion)
- rocket salad w/Parmesan and summer truffles
- scrambled eggs with black truffles
- linguini with asparagus and black truffles

and a bottle of NV Bollinger Special Cuvee.

Everything was very good. Scrambled eggs are my favourite way of showcasing truffles. It's not haut cuisine, but the eggs were perfectly cooked-- just slightly runny, still hot, with lots of black truffle-- and remarkably satisfying with the wine. A rich and wonderfully satisfying meal (and although I have friends who think lunch is as important as any other meal, to me it's still very decadent to eat this way midday Smile ).

I remember as a kid being really sad that I didn't ever have my tonsils taken out. The story was that when you were in the hospital, you got all the ice cream you wanted to eat. Oh well, I made up for it....... Cool

Indeed. A very cool spot.

Will be reurning to Newport tomorrow morning for my first attempt at stand up paddleboarding. Apparently we are going to circumnavigate Lido Island!

I must really have my head stuck-up in wine and beer bottles.

I have never heard of Micheladas. Eek


They seem to be making a comeback over the past 6-9 months. I hadn't seen one ordered in a bar in years until last October on our way back out of San Diego from that offline. I've seen them bunches of times since.
