Letter from Albany

albany folks:

Since sending out my ‘farewell, Western Australia” letter to the almost 1000 people on my mailing list, I’ve received a great response. Dozens of old friends have written encouraging, thankful letters, appreciating their cooking experiences over the last 8 years here in the West. Very heart-warming to say the least.

I found this one especially touching:

“Dear Kurma, greetings! While I was never able to participate in your tempting cooking classes in Perth, I do hold great memories of the ‘Cooking with Kurma’ classes held at the Summer School in Albany.

albany:

The friendly pressure to get the meal up on time, the many new food aromas arising and combining to test the nostrils and promise the taste buds of a new delight; the banter of the group, the almost pleading looks of people at the windows who were not part of our ‘privileged’ group, for a taste; the never to be forgotten communal meal and then of course – the washing up!

From personal experience, my wish for you is to gain from – make the absolute most of – and enjoy the remaining time with your ailing father.

Western Australia’s loss will of course be Sydney’s gain. However, for my part, I have my ‘Kurma’ recipe books which I must admit are catching a little dust while I struggle to retire from our seven-day-per-week nursery business. But one day, I promise, I will make good use of them and devote real time to doing things properly.

I gained a life experience. Our paths might never meet again, Kurma, but all the best for your future.

Sincerely, John and Norma.”
