The 3 F’s Part 2: Welcome to my Curry Paradise
On Saturday I held a dinner party for 12 people (14 if you include my parents). The starter and main were dishes I learnt to make in Bali. It was a huge learning curve and despite me believing I was more prepared than physically possible… I wasn’t. My guests arrived right on time and I then proceeded to have a 15minute ‘flap’ trying to get the meat in the oven, the salad garnish done and the candles lit. Luckily my wonderful mother lent a helping hand as did my friends and from then on the evening ran smoothly and was a roaring success (if I do say so myself). All the hard work and thought paid off (my napkins matched my Balinese apron!)
It was a joy to share the flavours of my travels with some of my dearest friends. I learnt that I could cook for 14 people but that I don’t really want to cook for that many again in a hurry as it took me 2 days to recover! My biggest achievement was breaking my meringue making curse hurrah!
The evening ended with the after eight game, Articulate and the name on head guessing game.
A picture says a thousand words so, I’ll leave you with a few photos…
