Thursday 15th May - Guided Tour in English of the Chateau de Berne
Located right in the heart of Provence, off the beaten track, we will discover the mysteries of winemaking as we make a 2 h1/2 tour of the vineyards and the cellars of the 300 year old castle, including a commented tasting session of 6 wines. We will then continue on to la Bouscarelles de Chateau de Berne, where we can enjoy our lunch in the shade of the olive trees, on the terrace of the ancient cellar. The lunch is not included in the price.
Mougins School has very kindly agreed to lend us their school bus and driver for the day. Places on the bus are limited, so we will act on a first come first serve basis. Please confirm your reservation by placing 28Euros in an envelope with your contact details (name, number, e-mail) in the culture club letter box in the reception office, by Monday 12th May and e-mail cultureclub@mougins-school-pta.com
We will meet in the school car park at 8h45 and leave at 9h00 and return by 16h00. Please do not turn up on the day.

The PTA Staff Appreciation Lunch organisers would like to thank all the parents whose generous contributions towards this years lunch for staff of Mougins School made it such a success. All your contributions were greatly appreciated. What a tremendous spread of culinary delights†!

The lunch began with a champagne and caviar table, a wonderful and special way to start, and continued with a colourful array of dishes from across the globe, alongside a great collection of wine and soft drinks which were all thoroughly enjoyed by all the staff, who give so much support towards our childrenís education and wellbeing. The lunch ended with coffee and a sachet of delicious chocolates to take home with them.

We would also like to thank the staff themselves, for their enthusiastic participation in the competitions. Congratulations to Jerome Hebant for winning the competition to dress up with an item of clothing from a country of the teacherís choice, to Tanya Marsanik for winning the competition to Guess the Herb in the biscuits on the Tasting Table, and to Neelam Makaar for winning the competition for the name of next years lunch ´Walk of Flavours.

And, of course, a special thanks too, to all the parents who helped with all the preparations and clearing up on the day, and to Tom and Sandra who prepared the Cafe des Amis ready for the students for the following day. The lunch could not have gone so smoothly without all of you.

We are hoping to put together a collection of international recipes for a Mougins School International Cookery Book. Thank you to those who have already shared your recipes, and a big thank you to Vicky Morgado, who spent her break-time taking some lovely photos of some of the dishes to go in the book. If you, or your children, would like to contribute a recipe to the book, or a small description of a typical mealtime in your home country, please could you contact Shan Rose (shan888@orange.fr).

We look forward to seeing you all at the Summer Fair on Saturday 14th June, to share another international culinary experience, and enjoy all the entertainment planned for the event.
