I love having an intimate dinner in a quiet, dimly lit room, it’s the only way I can enjoy my food and to keep a conversation on flow in close proximity.  Over a week ago, I had a lovely catch up dinner with fashion pals (Shini, Laetitia, Emily, Tala and Fiona of TCS) at a 3 Michelin star restaurant, Alain Ducasse at The Dorchester.

We were seated at the ‘Table Lumiere’ designed by Patrick Jouin, presented with tableware by Hermes, Puiforcat and Saint-Louis.  Of course, our table was cocooned by a luminescent oval curtain of 4,500 shimmering fiber optics, this ambience mood transported us into space enjoying our mouth watering food, forgetting that there were guests sitting near us.

I usually spend half a minute assessing the presentation of my plate before destroying it with a folk, chefs are like seamstresses, fine cuisine is haute couture, crafted by the hands of qualified artisans, what’s presented on your plate is art and craftsmanship.  And the taste?  Well, it’s up to your taste buds.

  1. The super fatty inside of me is flaming jealous of your little food gathering. Your amazing photos aren’t really helping either because makes me wish I was there EVEN MORE. Next time maybe you could fold me up like a tiny t-shirt and slip me into your bag!

  2. I’m really enjoying the design and layout of your blog. Lovely post.

  3. What a swanky restaurant, the presentation of the food are stunning and your photos of course.

  4. The dishes look amazingly succulent, wish I could you fine ladies and share our love with food and fashion.

  5. I love how you’ve compared fine cuisine to couture, never thought of it this way but you are spot on. The food looks deeee-lish x
