Conversation with Hilary Stringer

Hilary is an amazing woman and host to Las Coumeilles Kitchen Café. We have never met in person yet I feel as if I have known her for many lifetimes. Hilary is the owner of a luxury retreat centre in the Ariège area of France.

As the world deals with Covid19, many countries are locked down, which means Hilary is unable to host retreats. Without guests, Hilary found herself hankering for the kinds of conversations she had when Las Coumeilles was buzzing with people and inspiration. Instead of going without, Hilary has made it happen virtually.

Every month Hilary hosts new chats or interesting activities to listen in to and enjoy. I felt very honoured to be the first guest on the Las Coumeilles Kitchen Café podcast.

The Kitchen Table at Las Coumeilles Kitchen Café

If you can imagine sitting at a huge French Kitchen table you will understand why Hilary and I began talking about The Table of Life and its importance. Tables are privée to the most amazing conversations – the older the table the more history it holds.

As we enter into the next stage in our life the Crone stage, we become like the Table. We know so much and have the experience to divulge. Modern technology allows us to share it in many ways.

Pork Pie Protocols

During a deep conversation, we explored commonalities and weird fun stuff. As Hilary and I are both UK ex-pats we share the bond or returning to our birth country and observing it as a foreigner who talks the language.

I am not quite sure how we got around to talking about Pork Pie Protoclas yet we did!
