Pub Meet & Eat – Friday 2nd June

The next Meet and Eat pub lunch is to be held at the Golden Apple Pub, 46 rue Borie 33300 Bordeaux from midday on Friday 2nd June.

As usual, there is no need to book, just turn-up if you are free on the day and be sure to find a friendly Association member to enjoy a relaxing moment and a pub lunch together.

In Bordeaux we have a wide choice of pubs but only 5 or 6 actually offering lunch in the week. The Golden Apple (Pomme d’Or) Pub is the next one to try after last month’s visit to the Cambridge Arms Pub.

Hope to see you there !

The July meet & eat pub lunch is due to take place on Friday 7th but this date clashes with the Tour de France Cycle Race in Bordeaux on the same day. We prefer to avoid central Bordeaux on that day and will be looking at other pub venus further afield – have you any suggestions or do you know of any pubs with good food near you ? Please let us know.

Summer Picnic Party – Saturday 1st July

Our next BIG event will be held on Saturday 1st July at the home of Colette and David Gibson at :

4bis avenue Louis Robert, Cassy, 33138 Lanton

The format will be the same as last year’s Summer Jubillee event with everyone providing “bring & share” food and drinks for the lunch.

The Association will be providing the apéros, canapes and nibbles!

To scoff and wash it all down please don’t forget to bring plates, cutlery and glasses for your own use and of course your favorite drinks ! 

Music will be supplied by our very own in-house DJ’s for you to dance your afternoon away, or just come and enjoy the company of your fellow BBCers. What more does a British picnic party need for a knees up and a good old gossip?

But, to make this a success, we need you to provide YOUR best British cooking. So to create the picnic party food, we would like you to bring along a variety of savory main course dishes followed by mouth watering desserts.

AS A CONDITION OF RESERVATION we ask you to call or email Colette to reserve your place and for guidance on what food is needed for the big day.

Numbers are limited to around 50 people, so as not to be disappointed please book early before the closing date.

Ephemeral Table of Chateau Loudenne – Tuesday 26th September

We are delighted to announce that we are planning a lunch at the Ephemeral Table of Château Loudenne, Saint Yzans de Médoc on TUESDAY 26th SEPTEMBER 2023.

In the past, the BBC came regularly to Chateau Loudenne, usually for a walk and a picnic. Then, of course, there was the famous rugby match between the BBC and Chateau Loudenne that long standing member Rupert Holderness always remembers.

Château Loudenne is one of the prettiest Châteaux in the Médoc, and the closest to the Gironde. It has a fantastic view. As well as the red wine they make a white wine and a rosé.

Every Tuesday midday from May until the end of September and every Wednesday during the period of July and August the Ephemeral Table are proposing seasonal menus, blending the gourmet refinement of their historic recipes, with the richness of the Medoc terroir and the savoir-faire of their Chef.

The proposed “Menu de Jour” is at 39 € per person, comprising of a choice of 3 starters, 3 main courses, 3 desserts and a selection of local cheeses. A selection of wines are proposed at the Chateau prices.

Sample menu
Starters : Gaspacho d’asperges aux herbes du Jardin de Loudenne
Huitres du Médoc gratinés au vin blanc de Loudenne
Tartare de mule de l’estuaire au lait de coco et coriandre du Jardin de Loudenne
Main Courses : Tartare de veau, pommes grenailles et jeunes pousses de moutard des Jardins
de la Banquise (Saint Christoly du Médoc)
Pavé de Maigre, sauce de saffron du M2doc et légumes de soleil
Carré d”agneau eb croûte d’herbes de Loudenne et une semple fine parfumée à
la fleur d’oranger
Desserts : Tarte soufflée au chocolat noir et aux Noisettines du Médoc
Baba au Cognac de Camus
Tarte aux fraises et basilic du Jardin de Loudenne
Cheeses : Brebis de C. Perez (Saint Yzans de Médoc) et confiture de cérises
