Albany Cooking, Part One

I settled in to my accomodation for the week – a humble but clean room next door to the Vancouver Arts Centre.

Albany has a lovely harbour vista. The cottage in which I am staying affords fresh breezes and picturesque views to calm the mind.

Today we held the first installment of our 5-day cookery course here at Albany Summer School.
18 students have enrolled – 3 men and 15 ladies, of varying ages, but mostly mature age-ish, if you get my drift.

The class went very well. I took some pics but will publish them tomorrow. This is what we cooked:

Soft Cashew-Studded South-Indian Steamed Semolina Breads (Rawa Idli)
Spicy Hot-and-Sour Toor-dal Soup (Sambar)
Fresh Coconut Chutney
Aromatic Lime-scented Rice
Persian Gulf Curry of Potato, Cauliflower and Panir Cheese
Singapore-style Stuffed Parathas
North Indian Carrot Halava

After lunch I went shopping and found myself at the site of a local quirky landmark called Dog Rock. Check it out:

What more to say? It’s a big old rock that looks like a dog.
