La Petite Ecole

Limousin beef from Montbavial served raw, tomato compote, Salers mousse and watercress; line-caught yellow pollack, melon, cucumber, watermelon coulis, ricotta with olive oil, cashews and borrage leaves; a plum dessert (Greengage compote, Mirabelles infused in amaretto, Fortune poached with spices), a dark chocolate brownie, cow’s milk frozen yogurt and stevia leaves… This was the beautiful €33 lesson that Cantal teachers Sylvie and Lionel Echaubard gave us at La Petite École in the village of Rilhac. The décor hasn’t changed from its previous life as a school: school chairs, backpacks, maps and a terrace on the former playground! A+ for the wines: Chante Coucou, a Côtes-du-Marmandais from Elian Da Ros (€5 a glass), an Anjou blanc from Agnès and René Mosse (€30 a bottle), Minette, an Auvergne red from François Dhumes (€40). Menus €33 (weekdays), €38 and €48. // P.L.
