French food for thought
About 60 people attended a French cookery demonstration in Southwell on Friday.
The event, organised by Southwell Twinning Association, was held to give people the chance to find out more about the group and its 25-year link with the French town of Sees.
Mr Alasdair Alexander, of Funny Peculiar, King Street, Southwell, prepared pork with black pudding in cider and cream at the Riverside Church.
People could also sample fried Camembert, mussels, crepes, cheese and biscuits and red and white wine.
Visitors asked Mr Alexander questions about the preparation of the food and members of the twinning group answered questions on its activities.
The twinning group’s link is at risk of ending because of a lack of new members.
The association hopes to attract more members to keep the link going, and a visit to Sees has been planned for May.
The chairman of the group, Mr Barry Pearson, said about eight people at the event had expressed an interest in the group, and it was possible some might join the trip to France in May.
Anyone who would like to become involved with the twinning association should contact Mr Pearson on 01636 671824.
