Papa was invited to Lunch - in Nohant - join us

My dear readers, let me invite you to a Lunch in Nohant.
Nohant?
In the middle of France.
Yes, in fact we were invited by our good French Friends to the home of George Sand
(You will of course be invited to the home of this very famouse French female writer in a later post).

The Salon de The is a very tiny cafe, except during Summertime, when you can sit outside.
Due to the Sun, we preferred to sit inside.

Anna and papa went there, with the guidance by Claude and Paulette. Less than 1 hour away from Issoudun (I'll post later).
Why?
Because to visit the Home of George Sand.
Our friends are great lovers of litterature. They have several thousands of titles. And we brought some Norwegian Novels translated to French.

Before we did visit the Museum, in fact the intact home of George Sand, we needed some food.
A Lunch.
What to expect in this far away farmland area? Scroll down and see for yourself.


We studied the "Cartes".

Well, this delicate Salad was my preference


Here is dessert #1 (Papas)

Here is dessert #2

Here is dessert #3

See the Man in red? He is simply a master of cooking and creating cakes, tartes, sweeties etc

Coffee - really high quality - made from love and respect to the Customer. And the white you see to the left of each Cup? It's worth the tour alone;-))

Papa went out from a wonderful Lunch, but took a shot of his French Friends.
Canyou believe it: I've known Claude since 1967 and I was also in J P's baptize. I simply took the Night Train from Munich to Paris. I was on a 2 weeks training course in Munich, but had the weekend off. So what better to do than going to my friends in Montmorency, just North of Paris and join the baptize of their first Son?
That's what's friends are for. Right?
In fact, Claude and I have known each others since 1967.
And have had met several times. Both in France and Norway.

Besides the fact of how those desserts looks like (I'm drooooooling!), that kind of old friendship is precious. Lovely place indeed.

The last book my mother gave me before she passed away was a book on the life of George Sand at Nohant. I really liked the book and would have liked to go there. I grew up in Paris and when I was 9 we also had a house near the Forêt de Montmorency. I used to walk in the forest a lot with my dog. I shall do a post on this in the future, but right now I am only at my mother’s childhood so I have a long way to go in my recollections. Here is my mother’s childhood post: http://avagabonde.blogspot.com/2009/05/mothers-birthday-lanniversaire-de-maman.html

The French really know how to serve a wonderful lunch... and the coffeeeeeee oooh looks lovely! And I love the coffee cups and saucers.
You are so lucky to be able to travel in Europe so freely, the distances are so small when compared to the vast distances here in N America.
Thank you for your comments on my blog, I am so glad you are enjoying the photos of Newfoundland, it is one of my very favourite places to visit. More pictures will be posted soon. I want everyone to know what a grteat place it is!
