Recently my hubby and I met friends, Jane and John Doe, for a fabulous dinner out at a local bistro.
The bistro had a very relaxed rustic-chic décor and served French-inspired cuisine and locally inspired fare.
Of course as one always eats with one’s eyes first our appetizers did not disappoint – there was colour, height and texture.
Sounds amazing right?
When our mains were delivered Jane and Hubby had meals that did not disappoint. They were ‘beautifully delicious’.
Unfortunately, John and I who ordered the same item were crestfallen. Our meals were delivered and they were ‘void’. There was no height, no texture and no colour.
On a white plate, we were served a white parchment wrapped package, and inside was a piece of white fish on a bed of white onions.
White was not what I expected.
Although there is nothing more beautiful than white,
But on my plate, served in a French bistro is not where I thought I would see white.
I ordered chocolate cake for dessert. It did not disappoint!

John Doe totally agrees with your assessment and disappointment!
Hmm. I love white flowers! I buy them all the time. Is it their purity, freshness, simplicity? Whatever, I agree wholeheartedly white rules! That said, sorry to hear about the all ‘white’ dinner! No excuse for that especially in a french bistro! Mon dieu!
