Cooking with Chef Bob at E&O Hotel
absolutely love Christmas time. I love getting together with family
and friends with good food, a glass of something nice, and let
the magic take over. Decorating the house with our favourite Christmassy
things holly, snowmen, candles and turning the tree into the fantasy
Christmas tree of our childhood. I derive great pleasure as I
place my favourite decorations, remembering times past and other
places we lived, old friends and good times.
also party time and Chef Bob had some easy recipes and great tips
for us to follow. We started the cooking demo with Home Black
pepper Smoked Duck Breast with Orange Tangerine Sauce - Rocket
Pine Nut and drizzled Balsamic Dressing, Chef Bob is his jovial
manner prepared and presented an amazing dish and all the flavors
blended beautiful together. For main course he gave us a alternative
choice, Baked Salmon in Filo Pastry, this was very fresh tasting
with layer vegetables. Of course we still had the traditional
Turkey and Chef Bob demonstrated how to carve. We finished with
making all kinds of cookies with Ginger Bread.
up was Cocktails with E&O Tom Cruise and our 85 guests got
into the spirit of the morning while two Christmas cocktails were
made and ready for tasting.
the napkin folding follows Cocktails there not much hope but most
look pretty good. We tried two new designs and was lots of fun.
I as the host gave some tips of my own; create the smells of Christmas
with cinnamon sticks, oranges with cloves and it's always good
to have some mulled wine brewing, as the smells create a Christmassy
tip to take the stress out of Christmas and enjoy time with your
families is "be prepared". Make lists; buy all non-perishable
in advance; prepare as much as you can in advance and make time
for you to relax.
Greetings from FoodFriends and enjoy the seasons' culinary offerings.
thanks to Chef Bob and all his team for another magical morning
of fun and laughter plus learning.
