‘THE year be­gan with lunch. We have al­ways found that New Year’s Eve, with its eleventh-hour ex­cesses and doomed res­o­lu­tions, is a dis­mal oc­ca­sion for all the forced jol­lity and mid­night toasts and kisses. And so, when we heard that over in the vil­lage of La­coste, a few miles away, the pro­pri­etor of Le Simi­ane was of­fer­ing a six-course lunch with pink cham­pagne to his ami­able clien­tele, it seemed like a much more cheer­ful way to start the next 12 months.’
