In the first Semester at school we had to do a restaurant project in teams, we worked in groups of four and had to design a restaurant from scratch
We called it Belilasa and wanted it to be a high end french restaurant that specialised in Desserts and also had a Dessert delivery service .
I designed all the menus from start to finish , in our delivery service all the photos were free photos from the net , I have no idea who they belong to but just wish to acknowledge to everybody thank you and if there are any photos here that you dont wish to be shown then please let me know and I will remove them and the www.belilasa.co.nz isnt a real link
Belilasa Menu Outline:
Traditional French dishes that have been updated and
given a gentle contempory touch. Using the freshest mainly local
and some imported ingrediants.
Ingrediants from France and New Zealand as are all the wines
This Menu is designed to make you feel spoilt and special
yet relaxed with familiar favourites that might take you by surprise
in this modern world.
Enjoy the romance of the Belilasa experience
when you enter our restaurant and look through our delicious menus.

Le Fromage Menu
a firm intense flavoured Cows milk cheese.
During its maturing, Munster is turned every two days and washed with warm water from the Vosges.
This method develops a red coating on the rind that protects the cheese as it ages.
The rind is slightly corrugated and humid, which comes from the washing.
Over time the rind turns from yellow to red. Under the rind we find a pate that is pliable and sticky.
The King of cheeses a rich soft creamy cows milk cheese
The taste is creamy, and as the maturing process continues one detects a subtle nutty flavour.
The pate is compact, supple and evenly textured.
Its colour is pale yellow, reminiscent of straw. Its rind looks like white velvet.
Matured with nut liquor.
Since 1868, Trappist nuns have been collecting milk from neighbouring farms to make and
ripen this artisanal cheese in l’Abbaye d’Echourgnac, in Périgord. They use the same methods of production as for Port-Salut
The rind of the Echouargnac is very slightly moist and bounces under finger pressure.
The flavour is balanced and simple.
However the taste of the Echouargnac is raised thanks to a refining with nut-liqueur
which confers it this so particular savor.
The Affinage of the Echouargnac takes 2 months in the abbey cellars.
This cheese has a dark nutty brown exterior and a pale buttery inside.
A firm cows milk cheese .
Tomme de chèvre des Pyrénées
Uncooked, pressed semi-hard goats cheese
Ewe’s milk cheeses have been produced in the Pyrénées for centuries
but goat’s milk like the Tommes de chevre des pyrenees are very rare.
The curd of the goat’s milk is wrapped in a cloth, drained and lightly pressed to discard the whey.
This ensures the Tomme de chevre des pyrenees will keep for longer.
The ripened cheese is large, heavy and solid, with a firm white dry and compact pâte that occasionaly splits.
The flavour is rich.
Six Pans du Lauragais
This is a goat’s cheese from the Lauragais region of France.
It taste is light, subtly sweet, and tends to melt in the mouth. Enjoy!
The pate is firm, with a smooth texture.
Rouleau de Provence
The Rouleau de Provence is produced by a limited number of farmers in the Alpes of the Haute Provence.
Their goat herds feed off the meadows where one finds the perfumed grasses of Provence: thyme, rosemary, sage,
A delightful little goat cheese full of all the aromas and enchanting flavours of Provence.
The white pâte of the Rouleau de Provence are very soft and creamy.
The Charolais comes from the granite plains around the Charolles region of Bourgogne,
near the Beaujolais vineyards, from which it gets its name.
Its shape is a barrel with concave sides.
It can be eaten fresh, slightly dried (demi sec) or very dry.
Its artisan production varies greatly from farm to farm.
Sometimes the cheese is made only from goat’s milk, or a mixture of goat and cow milk.
Tradition calls for the Charolais to be made from two portions of goat’s milk to one portion of cow’s milk.
The richness of these plains produces a subtle savour of milk,
and the saltiness and sweetness of its aroma is a pleasure to the palate.
In this latter state it is in the category of strong cheeses.
It is also greatly appreciated in the dry state.
In the course of the first two weeks of maturing, its rind turns a
blue/grey shade and is covered with blue/ white mould.
Bleu de Chèvre
An uncooked, unpressed soft cheese with veins of blue mould
This traditional mountain cheese, a sweet bleu, is very particular as it is made with goat’s milk.
The summer version has a simple flavour of the milk produced by goats grazing in the mountains
and is characterized by a comforting roundness and the faint perfume of the mould.
This cheese comes from the Bearn region of France.
Its particularity is that is made from mixing cows and ewes milk.
This gives the cheese an interesting personality.
For the true gourmet we suggest you spread a light covering of black cherry jam over the cheese,
close your eyes and slowly savour. You might find yourself in paradise.
The taste is somewhere between a Ossau-Iraty and a Pyrenees Brebis.
The mixing of the softer, subtle taste of cows milk with the more pronounced acidic taste of ewes milk is a delight to the palate.
Le Patte d’Ours is an uncooked, pressed cheese with a smooth soft, sticky pate.
The Roquefort is probably the world’s greatest blue cheese.
It is produced entirely from the milk of the ewes that feed on the vast plateaux
(Causses- a limestone plateau ringed with cliffs) found in the Aveyron.
The ripening of the cheeses is in the natural damp, aired caves found under the village of Roquefort-sur-Soulzon.
It is the quality of the milk, the processing of the curd, the adding of “penicillium roqueforti”
and finally the ripening in natural caves that give us this unique and remarkable cheese.
The exterior aspect of a Roquefort cheese should be white and faintly shiny.
The taste of the Roquefort cheese is complex, but quite outstanding… Soft, creamy, slightly salty,
with an after taste that leaves the palate craving for more.
A good Roquefort cheese should never be aggressive. Roquefort marries extremely well with nuts and figs.
The “pâte” should be cohesive at the same time slightly crumbly.
The texture is buttery with blue veins of mold extending to the edges.
The smell has a subtle register of sheep’s milk.
The Tomme Brulee cheese comes from the Basque region of France.
This Tome de brebis (ewe) is relatively small.
This process gives the Tomme Brulee cheese
a burned aspect but in no way does it detract from its delicious.
Its originality is that at the end of the maturing period its rind is singed with a naked flame.
an uncooked, pressed semi-hard cheese
Traditionally the Tricorne is produced at Saulzais.
The ewes are fed on fresh grass and hay.
Tradition demands that the curd is allowed to stand for 20 hours at 18°.
This is followed by ladling the curd in the moulds.
It is then let to ripen for one month in a dry well ventilated cellar.
The taste of the Tricorne is interesting and the flavour well developed.
A well balanced distinctive soft creamy textured cheese.
