Last night I hosted the French party at my uni. I was worried that there wouldn't be a lot of people there (as my uni has a pathetic student participation record), but there were about 35 people who showed up (which is a lot, considering that last years Student Union AGM had about 45)!
We had the requisite French music, as well as baguettes with three kinds of cheese, and grapes for starters. There was a French lentil stew and tarte flambée for the main meal, with crêpes and a galette des rois for dessert. I even put a fève in the galette, so that the "winner" had to wear a crown, just as they do in France. I think the food was a hit, considering the number of people who asked for recipes. I had some great help in the kitchen, which reduced my stress considerably, although I didn't get much time to enjoy the party myself. But it seemed like everyone else did!
