My usual visits to Eau De Vie at the Phoenicia Intercontinental involve an a la carte menu of my choice, namely a steak. However, the wedding reception I attended last weekend was a pleasant culinary surprise. It was a set menu of 3 courses, with a dessert buffet, and coffee and tea.
The starter was ‘Duo of salmon and salad of baby vegetables charcoal grilled, walnuts and goat cheese’.
I’m not a big fan of seafood besides your basic fish, but judging by the vibrant taste of the goat cheese on the crispy pastry, and the freshness of the salad and its sauce, I gave the shrimp a try and it was worth it.
