I could tell there was a problem when I drove into the school car park. Seven or eight mothers all talking at once. A bad sign.

I joined the group. Nathalie turned, ‘Did you know there hasn’t been an entrée for the last two days?’

No, I didn’t know. Iona and Joe have eaten at home all week. The school cook is on holiday and there is a temporary school cook this week.

‘Well, a main course, cheese, pudding and fruit BUT there hasn’t been an entrée. Disgusting.’

So, if you invite a French family for lunch forget the entrée at your peril !!
