Our last meeting, on October 13th, the day before the anniversary of the Battle of Hastings, considered some of the implications of that historic event. Corinne Gibbons told us about the Souvenir Normand group and introduced the Bayeux Tapestry. Afterwards there were pictures of various scenes from this famous embroidery for people to interpret and discuss. It was a lively, interactive afternoon and finished with delicious slices of Tarte Normande, cooked by French chef, Michel Bru.
Our next meeting, on Tuesday 27th October, will be the cheese tasting afternoon with a talk given by Eric Chauvel, the Frenchman who sells cheese regularly in local markets. He will tell us something about the manner of production and advise which wines best complement particular cheeses. There will be a small charge to cover costs, particularly the wine.
As usual, we will meet at 2 30 in Holy Redeemer church hall in Upper Church Road, St Leonards. Anyone with an interest in French culture and language (not necessarily completely fluent) is welcome to join us.
