Last Wednesday the Craft and Social Club in Daglan become the ladies who lunch, at La Cantine in Daglan. Which is situated on the left of the Marie and village school.

You simply cannot beat good food, wine and excellent company on a gorgeous Summers day.

Everyone chose from the set menu above. I had a bean salad, followed by Salmon and a very tasty tarte tatin with coffee.

Bon été Ladies

A gorgeous lunch with great company.

Santé everyone.



Artistic Rabbit!

Yesterday was our Le Club de I’Amitie Daglanise (Friendship Club) Annual General Meeting which was followed by a delicious meal prepared by Fabrice Le Chef.

Enjoying an aperitif before our meal.

Lovely photograph of Jan and Loren.

The service was excellent.

The first course was potage de saison, I was so engrossed in conversation that I forgot to take a photo.

Caviar d’aubergines, houmous, olives, salad de jeunes pousses et chiffonnade de jambon de pays. The vegetarian option was the same but without the jambon. With lots of Rose Red or White wine.

My vegetarian main meal risotto with salad.

The meat main meal was, tourtiere forestiere de sanglier et ses petits legumes. Paul assures me it was delicious.

Followed by fromage with salad.

Roy showing his artistic rabbit created from the dessert, moelleux aux dattes. I think that I need to enter him for next years Sarlat Chocolate Festival.

Last was coffee, delicious.

It was great catching up and enjoying a meal together we had a great time.

The next club meal will be on the first Sunday in May, a traditional English Meal. Looking forward to helping to organise the menu, meal etc.

Event:- 18th March – Daglan Spring Festival.


La Cantine by Fabrice Le Chef

This was our first time at the new Cantine of our friend Fabrice, we were looking for somewhere special to take my sister for a meal and quite frankly we could not have picked a better place to go.

During the week Fabrice has a four course set menu with a vegetarian option.  Its great value.

DSCN1308We all started with a lightly spiced vegetable soup, it was gorgeous.


DSCN1309I had humus with rice and roasted vegetables, the taste was wonderful I really need to get the recipe.

Paul and my sister had escargot with chorizo but I could not take a picture I had to look away sorry.


DSCN1310My main course looks like chicken but it is salmon, incredibly tasty and may I say worthy of a Michelin star.


DSCN1311Paul and Michelle had chicken cooked in a red wine and served on a bed of vegetables; They said that it was delicious and that the chicken was cooked to perfection.


DSCN1314For desert we all had tarte tatin and fresh strawberries, I could have eaten another and another after that.

La Cantine by Fabrice Le ChefNot forgetting the Rose wine of course, which we all enjoyed, salute.

To finish coffee and biscotti to dip.

It was an excellent meal and we met quite a few of our friends from the village who were also having luncheon there.  We were introduced to their friends, which was great, a real homely atmosphere. I do love the kisses and the friendly “ca va?” that we get every time we meet, it makes it even more special.


Fabrice is open every day for lunch and Friday and Saturday for dinner until October.   In July and August the restaurant is open for lunch and dinner. So check out Fabrice le Chief website and book a meal for your next visit to Daglan.
