We were staying in Gasny on our annual twinning weekend and were taken to the Auberge for Sunday lunch by our French friends.
The food was excellent. There were several courses with a choice of delicious hors d'oeuvres to accompany our champagne, followed by starters of which my husband said that his duck foie gras was the best he had ever tasted and mine of asparagus and delicately cooked fish was beautiful. After these came tiny bowls of tomato soup with mussels followed by the main course. My duck breast was cooked perfectly and my husband's faux filet was said to be "perfect". As is the custom in France, next came cheese with a choice from various regions. Next the desserts - just mouthwatering. Mine were two delicate biscuit rolls filled with creme brulee accompanied with a beautiful bitter chocolate sauce and my husband's was mille feuille with raspberries and cream. Finally coffee and handmade chocolates. What a Sunday lunch!
Our waitress was smiling and attentive, the food was beautifully presented and absolutely delicious.
Gasny is only a short drive from Giverny and Claude Monet's house and gardens and if you're in the area, the Auberge is well worth a visit.
