Bonjour! Bastille Day in The Alice

The event happened 224 years ago and on the other side of the world, but Alice Springs’ own Froggies Rendez-Vous celebrated with a dinner and Can-Can dancing the day the Paris mobs stormed the 400-year-old Bastille prison and got the French Revolution into high gear.

 

That they were all blokes up on the stage didn’t at all put the diners off their French repas on Saturday, cooked by Chris and Seb of Desert Chef: Onion soup, followed by a main course of the classic Coq au Vin (chicken in wine) with a Gratin Dauphinois (potatoes gratin), and to top it off a traditional Religieuse (a “nun” – two choux pastry cases filled with crème pâtissière).
