Located in a pink house on Picton Street…
Is one of my favorite places in Trinidad.
I discovered Peche about a year ago.
I went in for a sweet treat for Glen and came out with a bag full of goodies.
I’m personally addicted to their chocolate cookies.
I’m not sure what they put in them…
But I dare you to buy one, take a bite, and not eat the rest.
They also make amazing croissants, breads and desserts too.
Foccacia – Sourdough with Roquefort, Cheddar and fresh herbs
*this is one of my favorites….a MUST try*
I was thrilled when they wanted to host our third Bloggers Table.
For those just joining…
The Bloggers Table consists of 5 local bloggers, who meet, eat and review the experience.
For past meet-ups, click here or here.
TrinidadLookBook even gave us a shout out this week!
Olive Fougasse – Sourdough, Organic Rye, Olive Oil
One of the best things about Peche, is all the homemade breads.
I’m a bread girl.
I love their multigrain bread.
As soon as we all sat down and got situated the bread came.
The Fourgasse was crunchy…but tasty!
The Foccacia is amazing…soft, cheesy and so good, you could eat the whole thing.
I know, I have actually done it before.
Rockefeller – Oysters with Horse Radish Chimichurri, Tabasco and lime wedges
Egg & Smoked Salmon Salad – Boiled egg tossed in roasted capsicum aioli, smoked salmon, mixed greens, Feta, pepper and Parmesan crisp
Paneer Salad – East Indian spiced Paneer and greeens and Passion fruit vinaigrette
After the delicious and beautifully presented salads, the Tandoori Shrimp was next.
I was excited to try this dish because I normally order their Tandoori Chicken dish.
Just one look at it and I knew…this was going to be amazing!
Tandoori Shrimp – Jumbo Shrimp marinated in Tandoori, the sauce is cream based
The crab legs were next and they smelled and looked incredible.
I was surprised to hear from the table that some didn’t know how to eat them.
I grabbed a section and got to work.
After spending 2 months in Alaska, I know exactly what I’m doing!
Crab Legs – Snow Crab Legs with herbed garlic and Chardonnay butter
I loved the crab legs, could you tell?
It’s hard to believe that after all that, I could dessert.
But you can’t visit Peche, without eating dessert.
Like a good T1, I gave myself some insulin so I could safely enjoy the dessert!
Noisette – Alternating layers of hazelnut dacquoise, hazelnut French buttercream and Rocher.
Panna Cotta – French cream infused w/Cardamom and white chocolate
This Creme Brulee is worth the trip by itself – AMAZING!
Blueberry & Saffron Cheesecake
Chocolat – 60% Belgian chocolate mousse infused with crème de cacao & Grand Marnier ganache and placed on an almond sponge soaked in an Amaretto and vanilla bean syrup
*This one was my favorite – soft, smooth and OH SO CHOCOLATELY.*
Here are some other reasons to visit Peche…
1) They are open on SUNDAY
2) Their pepper sauce is oh soooo good.
3) Their scrambled custard (aka scrambled eggs) is HANDS DOWN the BEST breakfast on the island!
