Essuie-tout - qu'est ce-que c'est en France - Kitchen Towel to you and me

We had fun translating 'les recettes Françaises' which decorated the sheets of French kitchen towel.

9 recipes in all. Hopefully we will try making some of them.

Wednesday 12 December 2018
The last meeting of 2018 saw us have our Christmas French Meeting. We played ‘Christmas Strip Bingo’ which is not what you might think. This didn’t involve taking off any clothing, just tearing off strips of paper and we sang some French Christmas Carols.

Afterwards we had a ‘French Feast’ with cheeses, paté, quiche, a baguette and a bûche de Noel, all washed down with a Kir or a Kir Royal. Very enjoyable.

Joyeux Noel et Bonne Année a Tous. A la Nouvelle Année 2019.
