This weekend saw our first visit of 2012 to Bessy Beck Trout fishery, where we renewed acquantance with Widget, the cat rescued from a baling machine last year… We had with us Claire and her husband Adam, a fabulous, creative and technical chef. I’m sure he would grace the screens of Masterchef if he had any interest in pastry. I have put some pictures in this year’s gallery but thought more were required!
An exclusive course gave us the opportunity to experiment… so we did. The food that wasn’t eaten over the weekend was taken home, and I understand the smoked caulliflower made a perfect puree to go with sea bass…
“Thank you Jo and Georgina for an absolutely wonderful weekend! We are safely back in London now, with our lovely box of goodies, and Adam is full of ideas for things to smoke. I will certainly let you know if he comes up with something particularly good! You have been such fantastic teachers and hosts, and you really made the experience special for both of us. I almost wish I’d saved you for next year, as now I have no idea how I’m going to top this for Adam’s 30th!! Take care and all the best, and good luck with the book launch! We will be buying a copy! ”
Well, we enjoyed it to! Claire Lau has promised to send us some of the pictures she took too – as a professional photographer in north London I suspect they may be better than these!
