December 2012

Tomorrow is the last of the Creative Plate Presentation course, and it was the most intense course that I have taken since I first started to take these courses. It has pushed me to reach beyond what I thought I was capable of, and I hadn’t expected that when I signed up for this course.

It totally crept up on me. I've been so busy this last week that I have barely had any time to post anything much less get ready for Xmas. Thankfully I'm off work now until the beginning of January, so I'll be doing a lot of cooking and hopefully a lot of picture taking over the next three weeks or so.

My mother has been staying with me, and I haven't had time to photograph any of the foods that we've been making. She's very interested in everything that I've been learning, so I've been repeating a lot of my recipes and experimenting with a couple more that I'll blog about shortly. Today we made garlic oil which we used in a salad.
