Craft and Social Sessions in Daglan Village

If you fancy making something new or bringing whatever you are making to the craft and social sessions it would be great to meet you. It is a good opportunity to meet the ladies of Daglan village for a chat, watch a demonstration by one of the ladies or like me to try to improve my French speaking skills while working on my embroidery.

Every Wednesday afternoon 2-4, in the craft room at the Salle des Fêtes, all are welcome.

There is an excellent sewing machine, fabrics, wool, cotton etc. that people can use.
 

Two expert knitters.
 

Coffee or tea with delicious home made gateau or biscuits every week.
 

I love the expertly crocheted snow flakes.
 

A gorgeous sweater at the front and cute Noël decorations at the back of the table.
 
 

It’s the time of year for two of my favorite events :-

Festival of Chocolate in Sarlat, I can not wait.
 

Also the Daglan Spring Fete Flowers Festival 18th March, wonderful, we shall be there.

What a Wonderful Surprise!

Maison Massoulier, Master Chocolater and Patisserie presented Paul and I with a surprise box of their gorgeous chocolates while we were having breakfast there last Thursday morning. The present was for featuring their shop and most importantly showing their large selection of delicious chocolates, patisserie, gateaus, etc. in our blog.

This very yummy shop can be found at 33 Rue de la République in Sarlat.

Thank you so much.
 

Look away now if you are on a diet.

This was our breakfast treat. Paul adores his pain au raisin with a café noisette, my croissant almond and café crème was equally delighfull.
 

My goodness, so delicious. Being a chocolate person the gateau at the front centre would be my choice.
 

Here are some of the new creations of petite gateau which were displayed in the window.

Again thank you so much, the chocolates are delicious.
 
 

Event- Sarlat Organic Night Market from five o’clock this Thursday 8th February.
 
 

Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel.

We are feeling in the mood for Christmas after our visit to the Noel Fête at Vitrac last Saturday afternoon, which was organised by children and staff at the local school. The workmanship of the arts and crafts on display was outstanding. Plus you could buy home made cakes, puddings and biscuits. Enjoy a cup of coffee or warming soup. Or buy a bottle of beer or whiskey to take home. All accompanied by guitar playing by one of the teachers, a brilliant way to spend an hour and to support the local school.

All hand made.
 

I think that Paul and I need to drink more wine! Wine corks were used in the making of the log houses and a few of the candle displays, superb. I was spoilt for choose on what to buy for Christmas.
 

Brilliant guitar playing, thank you for letting us take the pictures.
The hearts on display opened up for chocolates or other gifts. I was thinking of a bracelet but I can dream.
 

What we did buy was a garland made out of straw and decorated with dried flowers etc. to place on our front door. Plus almond and apple cakes, which were so delicious that I wish that we had bought a very delicious looking chocolate pudding. In truth I do not think that I could have burnt off the calories before Christmas, but it looked so good.
 
 

Event:- Sarlat : English Themed Noel Market from Wednesday 6th December to the 31st December. Forty Chalets selling arts and crafts, toys, paintings, warm woolen mittens, scarves, hats, ornaments etc. Plus a skating rink and Father Christmas.
The English Theme will also be a feature in the many shops of Sarlat along the main road and the Medieval Quarter.
 
 

Hurry… there may still be cake!

Today the 8 à Huit in Daglan have cakes made by our very own “Wonder Woman” (real name Virginie). If I say that they are so delicious that they make your mouth water with delight, you will conjuror up an images of the perfect French cakes.

Here they are on the table in front of Chris, chocolate cake, apple cake or pear cake free to everyone, and you could also have free juice or water if you so wish.
 

Another very happy customer with Virginie.
