The Food Appreciation Group has 16 active members and is now full.
Our June meeting centred around nuts: 4 members each researched one type of nut (almonds, walnuts, brazils and cashews) and came up with some very interesting facts and uses for this versatile foodstuff. We had tastings of nut spreads and nut cheese, and a demonstration of 90-second microwave almond bread. The discussion was lively, and everybody got involved.
In July we are planning an outing to New World who have kindly invited us for a behind-the-scenes look.
In August, the theme is The Cooking of Cambodia. (Why Cambodia? No good reason except that none of us have been there!) It promises to be interesting.
We are also planning an olive oil tasting- local oil versus imported oils.
