'usual to dine with them' is the definition.
I can't tell whether this definition defines the answer.

'hack meets the french outsiders in romandy' is the wordplay.
'hack meets' becomes 'cut' (I am not sure about this - if you are sure you should believe this answer much more).

'romandy' with its centre taken out is 'ry'.

'it's' is the link.

Can you help me to learn more?
