«You better watch out You better not cry better not pout I'm telling you why Santa Claus is coming to town He's making a list, and checking it twice; gonna find out Who's naughty and nice (and if you're bad he gives you to the Krampus). Santa Claus is coming to town.»
Not that I thought my italian father-in-law would fall in love with this dish (he's milanese and saffron risotto is king), but I didn't expect him to lick his plate clean! Risotto recipe by George Calombaris of #MasterChef Australia.
To think that I discovered squid ink gnocchi TWO YEARS after the original #MasterChef Australia episode aired on the tube. Alice and Wade's squid ink gnocchi with fried artichokes and bitter lemon emulsion is THAT GOOD. So glad for reruns, and that I was in the right place at the right time when Italy Week aired on Cielo tv.
Nice welcome and great staff at this quiet little hotel up in the mountains above Cote d'Azur. If the hotel had air-conditioning it would've made our stay even more pleasant (it really gets hot in the afternoon when the sun shines into the front of the hotel). As for the food, all I can say is that if we had more of an appetite at dinner, we would've ordered a complete menu instead of just one main dish each. The food is FABULOUS!
Perfect place for a weekend and the food is wonderful. Situated near the foot of Mount Lure, Cruis (in the low season) has all the elements for a peaceful stay in a tiny french village. At the very least, I would wholeheartedly recommend a visit to enjoy dinner at the auberge.
