Souper des vignerons @ Le Clocher Penché

Mmm... what a delicious evening. I went to the Souper des Vignerons at the Bistro Le Clocher Penché. The concept is that the Clocher Penché invites a wine grower to show and talk about it's products and the chef composes a special menu to match the wines. Tonight it was Chantal Comte from the Costières de Nîmes region that brought us her marvelous wine and rhum. Madame Comte explained to us how her wine was made between each service. She's an amazing women, very interesting and passionate about her art. Here's the menu

Festival Antenne-A :: Ipod Battle @ Rouje



Oh their god, what a crazy night ! My ears are completely destroyed. It feels like having broken speakers instead of ears. I still have more than two hours to take a short nap before I go to work...

Here's some photos I took: http://www.flickr.com/photos/simonroy/sets/72157594315010671/
