An Evening of Fine Wine and Floral Fantasy

A night on the town tonight; we attended the opening night showcase of Laurie Bullied’s floral art celebrated with fine wines and vermouth by Bettenay Wines and Margret River Nougat and a grazing table presented by Gourmet Food Merchant of Cowaramup – what a lovely evening.

 

 

Two Weeks in the Kitchen

The past few weeks I have been very lucky to be able to participate in a couple of cooking classes –  one provided by a local resident (who makes authentic Vietnamese cuisine) and one impromptu lesson by a visitor (Indian cuisine) and then I have been making preserves, jams and pickles.  You know what they say,  “make preserves whilst the garden provides.” And you have wondered why I haven’t posted any book reviews of late 🙂
