I asked Chef Sawada to pose his hands for me so I could take a nice photo of them. Apparently, he didn’t take it that seriously, and made it in a rather funny way. Coincidentally, this photo became a very nice one for saying “Happy Halloween” to my HaoKouFu friends.
Yes, a “Happy Halloween” in SAWADA style. :)
Although Le Baratin is located in a less chic neighborhood, it’s still very hard to get a reservation. You have to call at least one week ahead to secure a table. The origin of the self-taught chef Raquel Carena is Argentine, but her heartfelt cuisine attracts the famous chefs Alain Ducasse, Olivier Roellinger, Yves Camdeborde, etc. to visit this humble bistro from time to time. It’s also some winemakers’ favorite canteen in Paris. My favorite dish at le Baratin is ris de veau (sweetbread). I would rate it one of the Top 5 ris de veau I’ve ever had in my life (so far). However, it’s usually not on the menu. You have to ask skillfully, or just by chance.
If you are a foodie, and enjoy “blah blah” & “glou glou”, go to le Baratin!
