You know that lunch is likely to be good when the table looks like this.
Relais de la Mothe, Yzeures-sur-Creuse, 12th April 2013.
Wonder what it was for lunch.
Pat, I have looked back at the photos and it looks like it was lamb for him, fish for me and crème brulée for dessert, plus a bottle of Reuilly rosé wine from the Loire.
Those were the days! I'm now the only person I know with a house in France who doesn't drink!
Mark, I know of two, you and one other!
Beautiful table setting. Note to self maybe not quite so slapdash in future, I hardly ever use a white cloth or decent glasses, I have plenty of both, but we do use good cutlery.
Absolutely and the more in the glasses the better the meal becomes... We like a clean white tablecloth.
there is no joy like sitting down to a splendid table with its anticipation of fine dining with others.
