MEMBERS of Bromsgrove and District Twinning Association have been enjoying some tasty European treats by checking out authentic French food at a Bournheath pub and holding their very own sausage festival.
At the new French food Fridays at the New Inn in Bournheath, twinners had an array of dishes, including snails, rillettes, Normandy pork with cider and apples, frogs’ legs in garlic and tomato sauce, two different duck dishes, salmon en croute and quiche Lorraine.
There were also delicious desserts, such as lemon cheesecake with strawberries in red wine, crème caramel and tarte tatin followed by French cheeses.
Andre Pelaud, formerly of The Fountain in Clent, has moved to the pub and has introduced the cuisine, which is £14 for two courses and £17 for three.
Roger Westbury, chair of the association, expressed his delight with the new venue and said that it would be a great place for future twinning gatherings.
For more on French Fridays, call the New Inn on 01527 835153.
Twinners also held their very own international sausage festival, with members tucking into a host of European delicacies.
Bratwurst from Nuremburg and French sausages from Toulouse, along with some herby English Barnt Green bangers were on the menu.
There were also salads from the different countries and some delicious desserts.
The event, inspired by the Birmingham International Food Festival, was held at Rubery Community and Leisure Centre.
