September 12th 1940
Near Montignac, France a collection of prehistoric cave paintings were discovered by 4 teenagers who stumbled across the ancient artwork after following their dog down a narrow entrance into a cavern. The paintings are 15,000 – 17,000 years old. The Lascaux grotto was opened to the public in 1948 but was closed in 1963 because the artificial lights had faded the colours and caused algae to grow over some of them. A replica of the cave was opened nearby in 1983 and receives tens of thousands of Visitors regularly.

Week Four of the Winter Menu starts on Monday 14 September.
Please place any orders by lunchtime the Thursday before.
