The English Cooking Event

It was Friday, 13th and I was supposed to be the chef at the English Cooking Event. Chef means chef and not boss and surprise, surprise all went well. 10 cooking enthusiasts and one busy brownie listened to my command and met the demands to full satisfaction. An unusual experience for me: the participants were still excited.

Pimm’s Cup No. 1 is based on gin. It has a dark-tea colour with a reddish tint, and tastes subtly of spice and citrus fruit.

We enjoyed it with Ginger Ale. As a first step we popped the apple pie into the oven, to get the oven free for the ingredients of the main course.

    It was really a wonderful event. I enjoyed it very much. Everything was perfect and each single course tasted delicious!
    Thank you for being the chef, you did it well. And thank you and the other ladies for the organisation. I hope we will do it again.
