Thursday February 18th was a lovely mild, winter evening and a first time visit to Bev’s new apartment in the heart of downtown Burlington. Bev did her research and presented an interesting lecture on the early Quebec city settlement, the famous Plains of Abraham battle, and a biography of the author Louise Penny. The evening concluded with a delicious French meal (recipes are posted on this blog) and lively discussion – as we are wont to do!
Firstly, thank you to Bev for hosting a fascinating discussion and insight into the history of our book, and delicious meal! Will we ever know where Champlain is really buried? We missed you Jane. (from Jill)
Thank you Bev for a great time. It was nice to be able to walk over to your place, although I loved your home as well! After looking at the recipes I can’t believe how much work you did in preparing the Cassoulet, but it was worth all the work – fragrant and delicious. I bet the next day leftovers were wonderful too. Reading Bury Your Dead made me remember how lovely Quebec is and that I would like to re-visit soon. (from Laura)
