May 2019 Claise Connexion

The May Claise Connexion gathering was held at Frances and Anthony's lovely home near Bossay sur Claise. The range of people was terrific, with a little group of Californians who have homes in the area getting to know one another, and representatives of some of the old local families. The range of food and drink they brought was terrific too, with Frances doing a batch of her special stuffed vine leaves and Nathalie bringing a chestnut cake, to highlight just a couple (there was also some casse muséau, a tomato quiche, salmon and cream cheese toasts, a chocolate tart, feta and mint rolls, olives, carrot sticks, banana cake, and a savoury olive, feta and tomato cake) -- all delicious. Bruno and Martin brought a very interesting natural sparkling wine from an estate near Richelieu and I've made sure to note the name and will be visiting in due course.

As well as a horde of about 40 guests, Frances and Anthony were playing host to half a dozen red squirrels cavorting about on the back lawn. They have very kindly offered their house to host again in the future, and I will definitely be taking them up on it. Everyone had a really good time, including the half dozen or so first timers, so hopefully they'll be back to join us later in the year.
