Review

The lost Menuscript

When he heard the footsteps in the main hall, Aristide Bruaud, Chef of the King’s royal kitchen, knew his last hour was coming close. The loss of La Bastille was no small event, and even if the King himself seemed to contemplate the whole thing with disdain, Aristide had prepared himself for the worst.
His life he was not really so scared about but his precious book of recipes, the whole culinary history of his ancestors was not to fall into darkness.
Despite the emergency of the situation, Aristide couldn’t help opening the book and slowly brushed the old pages with his hand.
Courgette and burnt bread…
Lamb and smoked tea…
Crab and cauliflower…

Some ideas and ingredients in this book were so new for the 18th century that even he didn’t dare to propose them to the King’s palate. He just had to make the book pass to the next generation and for this he had to…survive!
Aristide quickly left through the small alleyway he had spotted weeks ago.
He jumped into the cart that was waiting on the other side of the palace.
Nobody saw him leave. Nobody ever heard again of Aristide Bruaud, the lost Chef of the King.

Recently though, some rumours have been going on that the Lost Menuscript might have been found, might have gone through centuries. The word is going that the world might be ready for the most hidden recipes of the Menuscript to come into the light. It might happen any time. It might happen… now!

Well !!!

So the winner of our draw for a voucher for 2 Discovery Menus at Le Petit Pois is no less than the famous Sara O'Kane , marvelous singer of the Lewd Tunes, which we go and see singing every time we can, to have some crazy dancing on Sunday nights after the service!

And to add to this incredible stroke of luck, we just discovered on their facebook page that the LewdTunes were also celebrating their two years, so guys we were born just a few days ahead of you!

We wish you all continuous success and we can't wait for another occasion to "shut up and dance with you"! Well as soon as Michèle's foot will be repaired....

We guess this draw was just meant to be! Happy birthday, thank you to you, followers, who have been playing, commenting and bringing us incredible nice words of support! See you soon and have a nice summer!

Two years old!
Win a Voucher and Celebrate with us!

If we go on like this we will soon have to call us Le Grand Pois or Le Vieux Pois!

So many things have been achieved in two years, from building Le Petit Pois itself, making it work from nothing, creating a crowd of happy and smiling customers, some of whom have by now become friends, winning awards, entering Georgina Campbell and Michelin guide, launching movie nights, Bar Talk wine tasting sessions and most of all : having a lot of fun, passion and excitement with a dream team supporting us.

We want this two year anniversary to be the one of all the incredible people who have been surrounding us and we have created a little album of shared moments. Some might not be part of this album but it by no way means that they have been forgotten, we love you all, this has been a dream of 2 years by now. As you can see by the pictures, more than a job, it is a family adventure and the family is growing!

And finally I want to dedicate these two years of joy to my lovely crazy Chef-wife dedicating so much of her energy to make Le Petit Pois a success, working together has been magical since day one and is still a daily happyness!

You can celebrate with us and win a Voucher for 2 Discovery menus by Liking, Sharing the Album and of course Commenting with the name of the one you want to bring to Le Petit Pois to celebrate!

July Menu is out!

-------
Irish version - special Summer day:

Summertime, and the cookin' is easy
Cods are jumpin' and the chicken is fried
Oh, your beef's Irish and your veg is good-lookin'
So hush, little pea, why don't you try ?

One of these evenings you're gonna rise up eating
And you'll stop havin' chicken wings and you'll give up the fries
But till that evening, there ain't nothin' can charm you
Better than our menu of July

------
French version - special Bastille day:

Ah ! ça ira, ça ira, ça ira,
Galway en ce jour sans cesse répète,
Ah ! on ira, on ira, on ira,
Malgré le crachin tous au Petit Pois.

Nos estomacs confus en restent baba
Et nous allons chanter « Alléluia ! »
Ah ! ça ira, ça ira, ça ira,
Quand sur le chemin du Petit Pois
Je chanterai en pensant au Foie Gras
En chantant ma chansonnette
Avec plaisir on dira :
Ah ! ça ira, ça ira, ça ira !

Petits comme grands sont foodies dans l’âme,
Ils tenteront la Tomate-Mozza
Ou le saumon et sa sauce lime
Car une entrée est bien plus qu'un en-cas
Oui les Irlandais pointeront du doigt
Dans la carte des desserts un espuma
A la pomme de terre, keskecékeça ?
Mais les plus gourmands penseront tout bas
Le Fondant toujours vaincra !

Ah ! on ira, on ira, on ira !
A pied, en taxi avec une lanterne,
Ah ! ça ira, ça ira, ça ira !
Au Petit Pois, tous on mangera!
