“Bertrand’s cuisine is for angels,” said once Ana Ros, the famous Slovenian chef. I agree with her. In fact – each time I visit Paris I can’t wait to get to Septime and enjoy Bertrand’s delicious food. Paris without a dinner at Septime would just not be the same. I am not able to visit Paris as often as I wish, so when Bertrand took over Lyle’s in London for two nights, I had to be there. All the dishes that were pampering our palates were utterly delicious. Highlight? Difficult to choose one, but I strongly fell in love with smoked beetroot with lardo and blood sauce (I felt a similar pleasure as when enjoying the carrots with blackcurrants at Relae in Copenhagen). Interesting fact: I am not a beetroot lover so my love for this dish with an intense sweet flavour of beetroot and blood sauce which wonderfully paired with the melting lardo, tells a lot about the magic of Bertrand’s cuisine. If you didn’t manage to get a table at these two evenings (both were sold out within an hour), try to visit Septime at your next visit of Paris. But be aware: it’s one of the hottest tables and Paris which needs to be booked well in advance!
