Lunching Like the French Do

Lunch at Chateau Ventenac

I know that most people don’t think about food as much as I do, so this week it’s been a real treat being surrounded by some fellow food-obsessed vegetarians who also think there’s nothing better than to cook, eat and think about food all day long. Somehow, today’s lunch really summed up the vibe. Nothing complicated. Just simple, fresh food, lots of salad, bread, cheese, great conversation, and of course, a bit of wine.

According to Helen, one of the cooking tutors, this was in the true spirit of French dining: simple, quick, fresh and leisurely. Here are a few pictures to set the scene:
