July 14th is a big day in France. In previous years, local restaurants have created special menus to celebrate the event. However, with the current international situation, how can we be sure the French goods needed for the day will be available?
One solution would be to internationalise Bastille Day and so double up with a genuflection to the Battle of Jersey in 1781; we could then produce a special menu without any unavailable French food and drink.
