St Germain Degustation, May 2015



We had an amazing French meal at St Germain in Christchurch - Saturday 2nd May. Eight tasty courses, all with matching wines (the names escape me, but we have asked to be emailed what they were). I can't wait to go back!

Highlights for me: Foie-Gras, Escargots, and Sole.
