Being pretty peckish the ample homemade bread basket soon arrived as we enjoyed our welcome drink. (It was the bread that was homemade, not sure about the basket.) As we perused the menu we soon spotted that it was awash with delicious sounding dishes using fresh seasonal ingredients. Having mentally tasted each course in our heads, we finally settled on a meal choices.
We both ordered ‘Assiette of Parma ham served with celeriac remoulade and rustic bread’ as our starters. Having eaten in ‘Verveine’ the previous evening (Amazing, as always!) I resisted the temptation of the sea bass, and decide that I was going to become a vegetarian and went for the cream cheese based lasagne. My wife went for the tasty sounding 'Pan roasted tenderloin of pork served with salsa rossa, char-grilled asparagus and sauce vierge'.
As the meals arrived, the freshness of the ingredients was immediately apparent, and things got even better as the taste & flavours proved exquisite. The pork tenderloin just melted in the mouth and everything else had similar virtues. All of the La Perle team were very attentive as they learned the ropes on their first night of serving.
The evening had been a delight and there is no doubt La Perle is a great addition to the excellent choice of village restaurants we already have.
