Lovely Little pearls of Deliciousness

It's been many years since I've enjoyed fabulous caviar. For so long it was a sustainability issue. It's nice to know you're there. The first thing I did was roast thin slices of purple potatoes in the oven. Then a small smear of creme fraiche and that yummy caviar. Followed by a delicious creamy 60% dark chocolate bar with a dollop of caviar. I love that combination it's so yummy with great champagne. So yes met all my Expectations for my Birthday. I really appreciate it.
I'll be back!
