Food played a big role at Quilt Camp. Why am I not surprised? Twelve women stitching and before you know it, it’s time to eat! Véro, our trusty camp leader, had arranged for the B&B to serve very tasty meals. Everything was from scratch, except maybe the bread and croissants at breakfast. Nobody went hungry, and, hopefully, nobody was on a diet!
We also had the spectacular experience of dining at a three star Michelin restaurant, Bernard Loiseau, in Salieu, a small town very near Quilt Camp. The presentation of each course was spectacular – especially the desserts. No, we could not have one of each.
Everyone needs a break from stitching and Véro didn’t disappoint. One afternoon she gave a demonstration on making her favorite scone recipe. Served with clotted cream and jam, they were an instant hit. A nice cup of tea, and I was ready for a nap.
The last day we had a wine and cheese tasting which featured products from the Burgundy region (that’s where we were.) Véro gave us a short talk about what was being served. Another cup of tea, and I was ready for yet another nap.
And, of course, we had to sneak in a little more shopping at Born to Quilt. There was room in my suitcase coming over. Can’t say the same about the trip home. Véro’s new line of fabric was just too hard to resist. And seeing the”laundry” basket in person really inspired me. Luckily, I already own the book!
