Yesterday was the annual automobile bourse at Noyers-sur-Cher, the town across the river from St-Aignan. We went last year and were sort of ambushed: we thought it was just a car bits sale, but in fact the Centre chapter of the Traction Universelle club have lunch together with food they have brought for the occasion. Realising this too late, we added roast chicken and chips (frites), which was slightly embarassing as we had to buy them from a stall.
This year we went prepared, with two bottles of wine, some carrot and beetroot rapée, and oven dried tomatoes, both of which Susan had made. We also took some shop bought paté de tete and half a home made cake.
This made joining in a lot more comfortable, but we were still outshone. Not only were there two varieties of home made boudin noir, rilletes and terrine, but Fabien had also brought some of his home made wine - a 2009 still aunis rose and a 2010 méthode traditionelle sparkling from the same grape variety.
