Food Video Mondays: Le Chalet de la Foret

Monday is already starting off right. I just got an e-mail from my professor saying he came down with a virus and class was cancelled. Hopefully it is not a cruel April fool’s joke, because I already have resigned myself back to bed with a cup of tea and my beloved stuff animal Mr. Snuggles.

But I realize not everyone is as lucky as I am today, so Food Video Mondays, a food porn reprieve from the first day of the week trudge, must go on!

The past 2 weeks I’ve been leaning towards homier meals, but today we run to the other end of the spectrum to view what a day is like for the kitchen crew (and lucky diners) at Le Chalet de la Foret. This Belgian restaurant is white plates, calculated food styling, small servings, big bills, good wine, and luxury. With entrees starting at 40 Euros (and appetizers hovering in the high twenties) at this point in my life I’d definitely need a valium before handing over my card…but it really looks worth it! Perhaps I can get a decent Kick Starter going to fund this gourmand expedition 😉

Love and Bon Viewing!

    Back from Boston and catching up in the food blogging arena and saw this post by someone who almost has the same name as me. That’s right folks, Oci isn’t my real name. Not only do I love the references to a Monday morning that started off better than mine (I’m in the office and my Apo has gone to Indonesia without me until September 1st) but the video is fantastic and I just want to say thank you for sharing and you’re welcome for sharing it some more with all of my Foodie Nation citizens.

      • If you haven’t seen stuff from the Saveur Video Festival you need to go check those out. NOW. That and America’s Test Kitchen has some good ones. I’ve put a couple up on Gastrogasms but I usually write the posts at work and I’m often too busy watching things like True Blood or Supernatural to watch food videos. But I love that someone (again with a name very similar to mine) is taking up the slack 🙂
