Paris, Day Two

Le Verre Vole, which means "The Stolen Glass", is a restaurant and wine shop. They don't do much of their own cooking, however they source the finest products in France to serve in their restaurant. This is one restaurant that promotes the very controversial "natural wine" movement. So what is "natural wine"?

Most definitions of natural wine include some or all of the following :

Hand-picked, organically or biodynamically grown grapes.
Low-yielding vineyards.
No added sugars, no foreign yeasts.
No fining or filtration
No adjustments for acidity.
No other additives for mouth-feel, colour, etc.
No micro-oxygenation or reverse osmosis.
Little or no added sulphite

(from wikipedia)

Salade de "Pot au Feu"

Pate de Campagna and Pate de Agneau
Beef Carpaccio, Pesto, Capers

Lamb Kidney, Orange, Olives

Utah Beach Oysters

Beurre. Amazing Beurre.

Duck Confit

Andoulliete Sausage: It stunk and it was the real deal. It's made with pig intestines, tripe, and all that good stuff. Almost like eating out a pig's ass!

Boudin Noir : One of the best dishes we had in Paris.

Chocolate Caramel Tart with Salted Butter, the best dessert we had in Paris.

Panna Cotta, Strawberry Sauce

The butter served at Le Verre Vole was one of the best butters I have ever tasted, so I had to raid a couple of their refrigerators to find out who the producer was.
