Culinary magic, my dears, ascends much further than old hat-tricks of turning carrots into roses or presenting a bit of fluff on a bed of foam. For true wizardry, the French turn to Pierre Gagnaire (the man behind London’s ever-trendy Sketch) who has made a name for himself in the world of haute-cuisine by blending unusual tastes and textures, to the extent that diners often need assistance in deciphering the menu. His three Michelin-starred restaurant is expensive, but an experience well worth saving up for; save room for the seven course ‘Grand Dessert’.
