I haven’t been one for new years resolutions but this year I have made a different start to this year. I had a private event for 80 on the 5th January. It was a great start to the year in every way. The clients reaction was so positive and made me feel that the hard work and the time taken to prepare for the event was reflected in what was served. It re-affirmed the approach I take to cooking and to my clients, deliver the best through hard work and attention to detail.
I also had a tutoring day at the WI Cookery School which I was nervous about but I need not have worried. The class made me feel very at home and they all enjoyed cooking the recipes given the comments at the end of the day. I am looking forward to doing more this year. The facilities at the school are wonderful and the best bit for me is that all the ingredients are all ready prepared which makes a chefs life so much easier when demoing a recipe. Wish I could have that service available to me every day!
I plan to post all of the recipes I prepare for my monthly broadcasts on BBC Radio Oxford here on my blog over the next few weeks. I have a growing selection which I hope you will find useful. Some are available on my FaceBook page at FaceBook.com/thelatechef . I would really appreciate feedback on any of the recipes you try so please email me firstname.lastname@example.org .
2013 promises to be a great year and I look forward to working with all my regular clients and my new ones.
I hope 2013 is a great year for you.
