My Birthday present

DW has got me a birthday present in advance. She has found a guy who is going to come and spend a few hours cooking with me and teaching me new things.

He is a chef who no longer works for resturants - got fed up with the hours. He has cooked for the Queen Mother, a Michelin starred resturant and has had his own sea food resturant.

We are cooking stuffed salmon wllington, fish stew, portugese cod and strawberry cream puff pastry. It should all be happening next week. I am really looking forward to it.

Good. So you'll have plenty of time to get camera equipment ready and train DW on the positions she'll have to get in to make pics for us of you and said chef.
See, she's thought it would be a simple idea, (and a Great One, I might add), but it ain't over yet. LOL!
