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.
Over the last few months Mark has eaten in four different restaurants, two ouvrier (workers) lunches and twice in the evening.
Mark doesn’t eat desserts…. Always preferring cheese.
In all four restaurants cheese did not appear either as a course in its own right, nor as an alternative to the desserts. Each time, however, he asked for a plate of cheese and each time he was served with a delicious plate of three or four different cheeses and a green salad.
So, why have the French taken cheese off the menu?
