Today we visited ‘La Ferme Aux Escargots’ – a real snail farm, we had a short talk about the farm, followed by a guided tour and then a tasting session!
See if you can work out what we thought from our pictures!
And now for the tasting . . . .
Picnic by the River at Beussent.
This afternoon was much more tasty than this morning.
We visited ‘Chocolaterie de Beussent’ – a chocolate factory, we had explanations and demonstrations of the various production techniques and learnt a little about the history of cocoa.
Finally, some tasting we could all sink our teeth into!
Just when we thought our taste buds could relax – we had some traditional starters for our evening meal:
Snails, Frogs legs and cheese tart.
Fortunately this was followed by “boeuf bourguignon et mousse au chocolat”.
Some of us got letters from home today, which we received after dinner. We then had an impromptu performance and played party games, before packing our bags ready to leave in the morning. None of us can believe that it’s nearly time to go home already – where have the last three days gone?
