Christmas Walk and Lunch on 9th December 2011

31 ladies met at the Auberge de la Roseraie today to celebrate our traditional Christmas lunch. After an invigorating walk in Ohain’s countryside, we were very happy to sit together and enjoy the restaurant’s delicious food in lovely, warm surroundings. We had the choice between two fantastic menus which were both refined and beautifully presented: the first one was pumpkin velouté with a hint of hazelnut followed by wild boar fillet, little pear with cranberries, grand veneur sauce and finally iced nougat with raspberry sauce as a dessert; the second one was beef carpaccio, arugula salad and parmesan, followed by cod filet, shrimp puree and chive with a crème brulée au café and all this plus café and mignardises.

Paulette thanked all the walkers for their participation in this year’s walks and especially all the ladies who volunteered to lead walks in 2011. There was a recap of all the great walks we did this year. Later on, Janet and Margaret on behalf of the group, thanked Sheila and Paulette for their leadership. Everyone agreed that the venue was terrific and that we should reiterate the experience again next year.
