Our gastronomy

It is an art form that needs to be defined.For too many people who know no better a gastronome is somebody who eats and drinks a lot.

This couldn’t be further from the truth. A gastronome now days means only eating and drinking enough to your hunger and thirst. It is the desire for only fine, well presented food and satisfy a delicate palate.

No elaborate preparation is needed.An omelette full of flavour is better than one which has not been cooked properly.

Accompany a simple dish with a wine that complements it.and you can call yourself a gastronome.

Being a gastronome is about loving life, and being sociable and courteous.

Being a gastronome is arriving in time for meals not upsetting your fellow diners.

Being a gastronome is about loving everything that is beautiful and good.It is about refinement.it is without a doubt precious knowledge to have.
