Mardi Gras

Tomorrow is the beginning of Lent and "Fat Tuesday" or the paler English custom of Pancake day signals a final blow out before the miserable four weeks of Lenten fasting. Here in France we have been devouring delicious almond and filo pastry tarts ever since Epiphany by way of the same excuse.
But fear not - bad penny is as heathen as Mother Nature herself and the festivities here carry on all year round.
