Final Food and Wine Pairing of the school year ~ An elaborate dinner held at Dessance Restaurant in Paris (Le Marais District. 3rd Arrondissement) This was an exceptional dining experience, one like I have never quite had in my life. It was truly an “event.”

Highly talented french chef Phillipe Baranes led us through 8 courses all properly paired with wine!

8th Course ~ Petit Fours….that we paired with 1998 Dom Perignon Champagne… Memories. Wow. The buttery notes of this Champagne due to the aging and secondary fermentation in the bottle…. combined with the fresh acidity…the bubbles were so refined. So minuscule on the palate …. magic!!

And this my friends is Hedonism at its finest. Each dish was very small… probably 4 bites total. It really was an adventure that lasted four hours. Everything was perfectly timed and I felt very lucky to be at a level to appreciate this type of meal in Paris.

Exciting news coming next post…final winery trip…. final food and wine pairing… next chapter is approaching!
