Cuisine has always been a big theme for mum and dad's travel. They have gorged themselves a total of 8 stars during this trip. Unlike the Michelin stars awarded to restaurants in Hong Kong, these restaurants really deserve their ratings and we will go through them one by one. They started their star quest with the French Laundry (TFL as it is known within the Thomas Keller's family of restaurants) in Yountville, perhaps the highest concentration of Michelin stars along a small stretch of a road. Other than TFL, Bouchon, another Thomas Keller's restaurant and Bistro Jeanty both have 1 star and they are all along the same stretch of the road. The 2 nights they spent in Yountville, they tried TFL and Bistro Jeanty. They only made a quick stop at Bouchon Bakery for a quick lunch. Perhaps they would try Bouchon another time.
