If you have an interest in France and travel (and we think we're speaking to most of you here) we'd love to see you at our free travel night on the 30th April.
It's a chance for us to get together and swap our stories, and will provide an excellent opportunity for those travelling soon to glean some bons tuyaux*, and even if travel is not on your agenda quite yet, come along anyway for a chance to chat about something we almost all love: le voyage*
Let us know you'd like to come along. We can't wait to see you there.
*hot tips (literally 'good pipes')

Sarah Thuillet, owner of Albion fromagerie Emile et Solange, owes her love of cheese to her grandparents, Emile et…you guessed it, Solange.
Sarah says: “My grandparents passed on their love of cheese and their shop-local philosophy to me, so it’s been a dream of mine to introduce others to delicious cheeses and produce. I grew up around cheese - we didn't ever have a lunch or a dinner without it.”
Sarah will introduce us to four very different cheeses along with their origin, production and characteristics. Naturellement*, we’ll have wine on hand to complement the tasting.
Places limited. Hope to see you there!
