COOKING WITH JOY
This year after a pretty successful ski season we had our first post season event. It was made great thanks to Joy.
Joy is a chef and she welcomed us into her lovely home as Sous chefs for a Kitchen adventure. There were about 20 of us in her kitchen all wearing our aprons and ready to go .She had set up preparation stations for us with recipes and ingredients in front of us. We all had a go at making a small part of each of the many dishes that were going towards the party food. It was very well organized with each of us spending 15 mins at each station. One person kept the time and sounded the end of each 15 mins. Joy kept an eye on us all and gave us tutorials on how to do things efficiently and easily. We all had such fun with the occasional glass of wine too, smoothing the way to a great day.Guess what, we all learnt something from Joy that day, and will hopefully be able to put the many tips into practice. A number of men joined the ladies as Sous-chefs. Those that had no interest in cooking stayed at the Belew house during the preparation time, nattering and playing Pool .
After all this we went out around the pool and had a brilliant party. This time all the men joined in
Thank you so much Joy and Tami for organizing such a really enjoyable day, and thanks to all the others who helped make everything run so smoothly.
Our next summer event is to the Lik Observatory outside San Jose. It is scheduled for July 18th , (date not yet finalized) and will be followed by a barbecue. So look out for the information in the events section of this screen.
