I have been in contact with the Town Hall and the timescale this year for San Joachim is slightly different. The Gastronomy day for 2011 will be Saturday 13th August. We have been asked if we want to contribute again and on your behalf I have said yes. Apparently this year's distribution of food will be different. People will no longer be allowed to choose or take from the table - the organisers have said that to speed up to process and ensure less wastage and people who get nothing now get something to eat, plates will be handed out with food already on them.
The theme this year for us will be all sweet items - cakes, pastries, tarts, pies, biscuits.
If you would like to contribute all offers will be gratefully received. I have told the organisers what we are offering and as I will be on holiday from 5th to 16th August, Barbara and Anne will be coordinating on the day. If you cannot take your food down to the tables yourself please make sure that either Barbara or Anne has your contribution at their house by 12.30 p.m. so that they can take all the food down to set up the tables. Thanks.
I personally will be going to Iceland for my contribution, so if you don't feel like cooking in this heat feel free to do the same (or to any other shop that sells British products)!!
I thank you all in advance for your contributions and help with serving on the day.
Have a great day!
Going to Iceland is a good suggestion Diane which I am sure we will follow.
