Slice a fresh baguette and toast slightly (if you wish)
Smother both sides in Auchan Picalli (or other brands would do)
Grill some onions and a large piece (about 500g) of home-made boerewors
Place sliced avo, cheese and fresh tomato on the other half
Mustard or ketchup is optional!
Mke sure that your shirt is well covered as you tuck in – cuts down on the laundry bills….
The 16th Century Church in Ménerbes is being restored with help from the French state, the World Heritage Fund and local donors – after spending most of last year, restoring the outside base and a new roof, the renovators have moved indoors to start reviving the frescoes.
The large panels adjacent to the altar used to house four beautiful medieval paintings, depicting Christian scenes. These have not been seen since they were taken to Avignon for restoration work after they had become water-damaged from the leaking roof.
Conspiracy theories abound in the village (what’s new!) – where are they? when are they coming back? can they be restored? In a village of 1,200 people rumour an innuendo can run rife : we wait and see!
