It’s been a while. And readers with attention to detail will notice there has been a change in the heading of this blog. Yes, folks, I have turned 50. And in wonderful style.
For the past year I have been doing something each month to test my senses! In particular, some events have had a foodie focus. One,a celebratory weekend with friends in Marrakesh where we took part in a cookery lesson. Another, a trip to Le Manoir Aux Quat Saisons.
I thought I’d share both with you over the next couple of blogs.
First, to Marrakesh. To Riad Zam Zam. A truly wonderful place about which I have blogged before. This time, we took over the Riad and a few of us took part in a cookery lesson. The ingredients were fresh, colourful and very tasty. And produced tasty meals. Wonderful salads: aubergine salad; carrot salad; courgette salad; and pepper salad. We also made briouattes wth cheese (which were fabulously tasty – cheese in filo parcels). And the chicken with sweet oranges really was something in terms of taste. And learning from a chef who spoke little English so that we learnt via a mixture of French and English was really fun.
Here are some photos of us having a go…
And of what we made!
And here we are ready to taste our efforts:
All in all, a beautiful stay in a wonderful riad with more cookery skills learnt. What could be better as a way to start off my second half century.
And here I am with one of my sisters all dolled up ready for the party.
At which the wonderful food continued. Happy Birthday, Me, Say I!
