Sue O'Rourke and Ian Cook in their kitchen in Lauzun, France

A Canadian Thanksgiving in France

It’s Thanksgiving weekend in America. In Canada, Thanksgiving was in October. In France, Ian and Sue’s thanksgiving was a few weeks ago.

I’d arrived at the French village of Lauzun at the beginning of November. It was warm and sunny and once my hosts had settled me in, fed me pastries, shown me cycling routes, and written out a schedule of social events, they went to work preparing a thank-you “Canadian Thanksgiving” feast for 24 of their friends and neighbours in the village.
