Saturday Night Social

We live deep in the heart of Le Morvan, a national parc in Burgundy.  It is very rural and fairly unpopulated compared to where we lived in England.  Some visitors say that we live "in the middle of nowhere"  well that's the way we like it!  

We have a fabulously eclectic circle of friends here including French, English, Dutch, Flemish, Corsican and Australians. We regularly socialise with our French neighbours, as well as an internationally famous artist, a handbag designer, a botanist, teacher, talented craftspeople, professional brocanters, IT gurus and many more. 

Recently we have enjoyed delicious Chinese (complete with chopsticks), Italian, Indian and, of course, French meals with friends.

Tonight we are hosting a meal for les anglais.  It's going to be Italian meatballs with English mash followed by blackberry and apple pie and walnut cake.  The blackberries, apples and walnuts are all from our garden.

And other times it's completely unplanned and impromptu, evenings that have started out as an Apero and finished many hours and many bottles of wine later. 

But that's another story.
