Food Glorious Food Part 1....

We had some fantastic culinary experiences in Orlando. We ate at Emeril's, Wolfgang Puck Cafe and at two restaurants in Disney.The Chefs De France in Epcot, and then a character dinner in Magic Kingdom.

I was really surprised how great the French restaurant was. I thought it was going to be OK, but I was thrilled that it was so nice. Everything was totally French, the decor, waiters and food. The executive chefs/partners are Paul Bocuse (and this restaurant is managed by his son!), Gaston Lenotre and Roger Verge

We all had something different. My parents had this wonderful looking dish:

It's Noix De Saint Jacques et gambas sautees Flan e'epinards, sauce a l'oseille or in other words Sauteed scallops and black tiger shrimp served with spinach flan and sorrel sauce. They said it was delicious.

I had the Jarret d'agneau, riz complet et carottes, which translated is Braised lamb shank, black perl rice medley and carrots. Divine. I love lamb.

Marc had "The Menu", which was Onion Soup, Roasted chicken with basil mashed potatoes and braised tomato topped off with Vanilla creme brulee. The only thing that was a bit disappointing was that the Creme Brulee was served stone cold and all the sugar on top had not been caramelised properly. That was probably a time issue though.

The kids menu was great with nice vegetables and fish and also chicken and pasta - although I'm sure that any kid that has been walking around Epcot all day will eat anything because they are really hungry!!

All in all I was thrilled with this restaurant, and would definitely eat there again given the opportunity!
