Sunday (Fetes des Meres), May 30 – Kintzheim: It was too good to last! We took the recommendation of our hosts that the Relais & Chateaux inn in Selestat was a good place to eat and made a reservation for Sunday lunch. It was an utter disaster: silly foie gras layered with cherry gel:
inedible turbot, a decent langoustine risotto (the exception), the toughest veal chop on earth, and unripe strawberries for dessert. Ugh!
We haven’t had a day of full sun since leaving Paris and so we spent most of the day on the internet catching up with the Sunday Times and email. We did have some ripe strawberries purchased yesterday for dinner along with a bottle of the local Cremant d’Alsace (the glasses and candle lantern were among the bric-a-brac we purchased in Strasbourg):
To bed to try to forget today! Tomorrow has to be better!
