When I last baked Fougasse I had an idea: make them like the leaves of the Swiss Cheese Plant with a little cheese scattered over the top...the ideal bread for the farewell party held at Liz and Bob's with friends from the Kenilworth in Bloom and Kenilworth Horticultural Club Committees and judges.
We were really touched by Liz and Bob's offer to hold this party at their home. Many of the guests were co-opted to make different dishes, and Liz asked me to make the canapes and bring some bread and chutney, and all the dishes, with desert and cake too, made for a lovely spread. Bob cracked open some magnificent wines from their cellar. We even had a tour of their home, and what a wonderful house, full of their personality and also hard work reviving and decorating family treasures. It was a wonderful send off!
