Asnières-sur-Vègre is a pretty little village not far from us, and they were holding a village festival focused on local food products (always a popular theme), plus local craftspeople and artisans.   The day was finished off by a gourmet dinner prepared by five local chefs, each being in charge of one course.   A very fine day out.

Here's a few random snaps of the town.  I didn't take many pics of the stalls, though I sampled a lot of  food products; the town had lots of pretty views that distracted the camera lens.

There were some animals on display, presumably as raw ingredients for gourmet meals.  This rabbit is a Flemish Giant, apparently.   The bunny itself was impressively big, but I was taken by its ears, they were HUGE.    These sheep look to me like they could be something out of Star Wars - their faces, anyway.

We paused mid-afternoon for a tea, in a tea room in the middle of the village.   So when do they bring us the cup, I wondered.  Ah, it's under the teapot.   The decorated table was just next to the tea room.  Nice.

Here's the chateau where the dinner was held, and this is the table layout; both quite fancy.  And France won the match against Iceland; we were updated on the progress throughout the evening.
