Welcoming Christmas with an authentic celebration feast

December 5th, 2017 Posted by Blog, Events No Comment yet


Our latest pop up took Christmas as its inspiration and Sunday 3 December saw more than 30 hungry Francophiles gather at Staveley and Copgrove village hall for a French festive feast with a difference.

We partnered with our favourite local farm shop, the award-winning Minskip Farm Shop, and all the seasonal ingredients for the five-course menu were local.  Expertly selected wines accompanied the menu.

Contented guests commented on how fantastic the feast was and that it was a little different to the usual British festive fair. Overall the event was a huge success and I hope to offer more lunches and dinners at the hall during 2018.

You can see the menu that was on offer below.

Our Feast Menu



Scallop & prawn vol-au-vent
Champagne Beurre blanc


Guinea fowl breast stuffed with chestnuts
Served with a mushroom sauce, rösti & baby vegetables


Dark chocolate Yule log
With Christmas spices, mango & rum crème anglaise


All that remains is for me to wish you all a Joyeux Noël from myself and Anne.  We hope to see you in the New Year.
