Le Cercle Français des Étudiants d'Astrid was officially started in June, 2007 by Astrid Harris. Meetup provides not only a means for quick communication but also a way for members to post information and pictures about themselves and their activities.
However, our meetings began several years earlier as a way for current and former students to meet together in a friendly atmosphere to learn about French cooking and have the opportunity to speak French.

We met together in Astrid's home to cook, talk French (25¢ fine for each word of English!) and get to know one another in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere.
The cooking class has included such recipes as coquilles Saint-Jacques, chocolate mousse, coq au vin, an authentic fondu complete with a chocolate fountain (!). Our holiday meeting included special dishes prepared by Astrid and a delicious gateau de Noël.
Each meeting provides not only the opportunity to be immersed in French, but to meet new people, hear about everyone's latest adventure, laugh and just have fun.
Special guests speakers on occasion have also presented interesting topics in an informal setting.

Each meeting is unique, fun and most of all provides the opportunity for all of us just to get together, catch up on how we are doing, and have fun!
