Our wonderful and very French friend Olivier Billon (CEO & Co-founder of Ykone & who interviewed us here) invited us over for an intimate dinner at his Parisian flat on our recent trip abroad. It was not only an enjoyable night because of the company and conversation but also due to the service Olivier hired to perform the meal. You get one chef who buys all the ingredients that morning at the market, makes hors d’oeuvres followed by a three course meal with wine pairings, and then cleans up the kitchen as well as all the dinnerware which means… our host was able to be with us and enjoy the evening as much as we did. I wish this were more common in the US, or rather I wish I were friends with people who do this (all the time).
My apologies, I have all these amazing and strange food photographs but not a clue what it was we actually ate. Our chef beautifully described each course as it was served…in French! That’s okay, it sounded better that way.
