British ministers dined on the finest French cuisine during their working lunch at the Elysee Palace in Paris today.
Prime Minister David Cameron and French president Nicolas Sarkozy led a round-table discussion following morning talks.
On the menu at the lunch was beef cheek terrine with controversial liver dish foie gras, followed by chicken with pasta. That was topped off with French favourite mille feuille with hazelnut ice cream.
They were joined by Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg, Defence Secretary Philip Hammond, Foreign Secretary William Hague, and newly-installed Energy Secretary Ed Davey, who had each spent the morning in talks with their French counterparts.
