Chris Slade describes the son et lumiere presentation at the abbey of Bon Repos called "Le Pays de Conomor" in Brittany, which takes place during the first two weeks of August.
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.
‘What have the children been eating at the canteen?’ I asked.
‘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 !!
