|I made my way South yesterday on the train to Cronulla and took a pleasant ferry ride across to Bundeena.
The first of two scheduled classes at the home of Marion went well. We cooked a feast in record time and had fun in the process.
Our menu, entitled “The Global Vegetarian”:
Creamy Gujarati Yogurt Soup (Karhi)
Canadian Orange, Currant and Pecan-studded Wild Rice & Basmati Pilaf
Fresh Panir Cheese Crusted in Egyptian Spice and Nut Dip (Dukkah)
Succulent North Indian Mixed Vegetable Balls (Kofta) in Mildly-seasoned Fresh Tomato Sauce
Lemon-infused Dubai-style Salad of Fresh Date, Toasted Turkish Bread, Herbs & Feta
Smoky Lebanese Eggplant Dip (Babagannouj) with Flame-toasted Pappadams
Epiphany Doughnuts in Lemon-scented Rosewater & Orange-Blossom Syrup
Here’s some of the ladies rolling kofta balls.
We’re going to do it all again tonight, with a different crew and a new menu.
Friday I head to Melbourne, my ‘old stomping grounds’.
