The headquarters are based in Paris, known for its fine cuisine and high end chefs. La Belle Assiette, translating as "The the beautiful plate" or "dish" bring this to the comfort of your home. Once you've picked your menu with the chef, all you have to do is invite the guests, provide the tipple and put your best gladrags on. You'll even get sent some lovely printed menus ahead of the date to dress your table. As one of his first diners, we had the pleasure of being hosted by Chef Mark Baines, based in Leicestershire, for an evening of fabulous food. It was his La Belle Assiette Validation Dinner, so on this occasion the menu was complimentary.

The Menu

 Crab & Squid ink Tortellini, bisque, chilli oil. 

Loin of spring lamb, Lamb croquette, peas, mint, redcurrant jus. 

Chocolate mousse, English raspberries and chocolate mint.

Chef Mark made himself at home in my kitchen, as you'd expect a confident and experienced chef to. The sous vide was bubbling away in moments and we talked about our love for a beautiful slate or platter as he plated up the inviting appetisers. As my guests arrived, they enjoyed the stunning mix of Stilton, baba ganoush and smoked salmon as Chef Mark continued his creations behind the scenes. Seated perfectly on time, we helped ourselves to his homemade butter with fresh bread from Hambleton's, a local East Midlands based bakery.

The chilli and lemon and black pepper butters went down particularly well with the crowd. My favourite dish was the squid ink tortellini. Zesty citrus, delicate crab and a moreish bisque left us wanting more. The next course, lamb, was a delight on the plate and really did show off his culinary talents.

La Belle Assiette is a great concept for foodies who fancy something different from a night out at a restaurant or cooking for themselves. Overall, we all had a fantastic night and cannot commend Chef Mark enough. He left my kitchen spotless (probably better than it was before - which was handy as I had a house viewing the next day) and came, created amazing food and went like a professional. And luckily there was some flavoured butter leftover for everyone to take home.
