Dining In

Are you a chef, or do you need one?

Imagine sitting on the terrace, sipping a glass of wine.
happily contemplating the valley beyond,
the only sound the cooing of mourning doves.
The silence is broken by a truck’s engine.

You try to ignore it
But soon, you can’t
The aromas wafting over are too tempting.

Our Chef is a one man show and his truck is a thing of beauty.
He’ll set out his ‘planche’ and grill your magret de canard cooked to order. With chevre chaud on salad vert to start, pommes frites to go with and a Tarte Tatin for dessert, a perfect repas.

We’re not far from Spain and Paella is one of the chef’s specialities, he’ll make it and serve you from his enormous paella pan. With gazpacho to begin and a light flan for dessert.

Accomplished as he is at the grill, our chef is just as adept in creating traditional country fare at the oven using the very best and freshest seasonal and regional ingredients from his garden or ours. Perigordine specialties are his, but he’ll happily prepare regional meals from other areas of France, from Coq au vin to Moules et Frites. Or, suggest a menu, he’ll happily comply. 

One meal you won’t want to miss is the traditional Repas Perigordine. It begins with tourin blanchi, a light garlic soup. Next, a slice of foie gras on brioche toasts with confiture d’oignon and a glass of Monbazillac wine. Then the main course—confit de canard, haricots verts and pommes sarladais. Dessert is gateau aux noix with creme anglaise and the rest of the bottle of Monbazillac wine. A meal fit for royalty and a fitting way to say au revoir (see you again) or better yet, a bientot (see you again soon!).
