NEW YORK FOLLOWED BY MOSCOW FOLLOWED BY DUBAI. THEN I SHOULD CALM DOWN FOR THE RITZ OPENING
Two glorious events took place. The first one in the Casa del Mare hotel which was very splendid. The hotel is lovely and I was immensly helped by an ex Lasserre collegue who has become the Food and Beverage manager there; Stephane and I last worked together in 1985. Heavens! that's 30 years ago (and we havn't changed a bit!).
The second up in the Los Angeles Hills with the most glorious view of L.A.
By the swimming pool I set up my bar. This time I redrew the pool, the trees and the garden sourrounded by some houses on the banquet table and made the cocktails to the coulours of everything around me. Sort of a 3D map. First time I've done that and I shall definately do an encore.
I had, we had a lovely time, next day a lovely stroll in the heart of Los Angeles before returning to Paris and prepare my next trip to Porto Ercole and my favourite hotel Il Pellicano.
