Sunday March 22nd 2009
Today I (Paul) am going to spend the day at Bettys cookery school in Harrogate learning to cook sauces. Pat gave me a one day cooking course to commemorate my departure from HRC and I chose to learn how to cook sauces because I thought it would be more challenging than pastry, pies, Italian cookery or any of the other courses on offer.
So 9 am on a Sunday morning sees me arriving at Bettys with a coolbox ready to
cook sauces – and 15 others had the same idea.
The classroom consists of a demonstration
bench, individual workstations and an
adjacent eating area.
During the day, I made:
|White Wine Sauce|
plus various variations using some of the above. I also learnt how to chop onions, make poached eggs and also Eggs Benedict (which
we ate for lunch). Samples of everything were brought home for later tasting.
A good day and great fun – thank-you Pat.
