Gourmand Club

Diary of Events IMG_9384 IMG_9398 IMG_9385

The Gourmand Club aims to bring together the gourmands and gourmets of the Association Des Amis who want to discover new restaurants, share good food with friends, taste local products (crepes, bread, honey, chocolate, jam, biscuits, beer...) or products from further afield (wine for example) and exchange recipes from France, Britain or all over the world.


Janet has  taken over the reins from Val to run the Gourmand Club, but we encourage all members of the Foodies Club to help by suggesting activities, visits or restaurants they know or would like to try, and even take over the organisation of the event.

Visit to Chatillon Chocolatier at Pleyben, followed by lunch at Le Stirwen restaurant (also at Pleyben) - 11 December


19 members of the Gourmand Club met at Pleyben in Finistère. Janet had planned two events with help from Annie.

The first was a visit to Chatillon Chocolatier where they make chocolates by hand (their speciality being the well-known florentines), but also wonderful fruit jellies and a wide range of fruit-flavoured marshmallows.

The second event was lunch at the restaurant called "Le Stirwen" where we ate well for a very reasonable price. Eveyone seems to have had a great day!

Meat Lunch at La Closerie, part of the Lycée Professionnel at Saint-Quay-Portrieux - 5 February

Wednesday, 5 February was our second visit in two weeks to "La Closerie", this time for a meal intended more for meat lovers. There were 12 of us, all seated at the same table.

The food was delicious, the service friendly and the company very pleasant.

Lunch at L'Alize, Roscoff - 28 October


8 members of the Gourmand group ate very well at L' Alize, Roscoff today.

Situated overlooking Roscoff marina, it has a great view. The interior is contemporary as is the menu. It offers a varied price range of very fresh dishes with excellent wine and attentive service.
