What’s been happening in my kitchen – and what next?

After nearly 6 months since my last entry here, I’ve embarked on some challenging new adventures.  Before they all disappear into memory of bits and pieces in my head, I thought I’d better get on with updating my blog.  To be honest, I find writing a blog or a diary (though I have NO idea when I last wrote a diary!) is quite a challenge.  I have mentioned this to friends who are also in the same boat and we all feel and think: “Who would be interested in reading a constant bombardment of your life story?”  But then there are times when you have so much you want to tell and share that you’re glad you have a medium to do that.  From me, for most of it, it would be anything relating to food that I’ve experienced myself.  Be it recipes, restaurants, food news, travelling looking for memorable food, etc.

So here goes…

In November last year, I held my second noodle cooking demonstration which was well attended and hopefully has encouraged everyone to practice the recipes at home.  Cooking noodles can be done very quickly, or they can be as elaborate as you want them to be.  Most people would make them as a quick meal for family, especially when there are hungry children around.  Asian fast food, if you like.

To book a noodle cooking demo for 10 people, please drop me a line in the box provided at the bottom of this page.

Prior to the Christmas rush,  a group of 12 booked a table to experience ‘Dinner at mine’.
Here are some of the comments received:
(from the organiser) “Fantastic feedback, everyone loved your food, well done”.
“Definitely do it again,we will book for next year!! Yes both Paul and I really enjoyed the food,what was the fish?”
“I fully intend to make use of your brilliant services again”.

A typical dish served at ‘Dinner at mine’ – and many more!

More enquiries came in after that, but as I’d booked a month away in Indonesia, I had to let them all down.

But, hey everyone – I’m back now, and open for business!  And I’m introducing a new booking system for ‘Dinner at Mine’.  You no longer have to book for a group of 10 or 12.  I’m going to have up to three tables available on the same evening.  So if you don’t want to arrange a bigger group, you can book for four or six.  Once I get a booking I’ll do my best to get one or two other tables arranged for the same evening.

I hope to hear from you!

And now for something completely different: dinner at mine.

And here’s a completely new idea I’d like to propose: if you have a group of friends that would like to go out for a meal together, and you’d like to try something different, how about coming to my place for dinner?  You’ll get a great meal, at a very reasonable price.  And if you want to bring your own wine, there’s no corkage! It’s a bit like going out to a restaurant – but at my house.

I’m going to add a new section to my website shortly.  Watch this space!
