7 hour roasted pork

When someone asks me about my fine dining recommendations in Paris, lunch at L’Arpège is always on the top of my list. Alain Passard is the pioneer of ditching proteins and putting humble, sometimes forgotten vegetables in the center of the plate. What many forget, that before reinventing himself as a master of vegetables, Alain Passard was a master of roasting. So if you take the tasting lunch menu you will not only have a chance to taste an array of Passard’s classical or new vegetable dishes, but also the “roast of the day”, which can be anything from perfect sole fish, chicken or this 7 hour roasted pork with crispy skin pictured above. L’Arpège lunch menu comes at 145 euros, quite a bargain considering that its dinner tasting menu costs 380 euros or, that some 3 Michelin stars restaurants in Paris charge this amount for just one dish!

Bonjour! I am Aiste. A few years ago, I used to be what is commonly called a “top fashion model”, working in Paris, New York or London for major international brands and designers. It’s a known fact: top models don’t eat, do they? Well, I did! I loved to eat, and still do! I’m passionate about good food and fine cuisine, and love to travel around in quest of great restaurants, gourmet landmarks and gastronomical trends. I also have a camera grafted on my left hand, and can’t help taking and sharing pictures of my best food discoveries! Yes, I’m what you could call an enthusiastic world “food-trotter”. And I would like you, dear readers, to be my first-class travelling companions...
