Dinner for 800

Alas! I forgot to press the “Post to Home Page” button yesterday, and so this never went out into Blogland:

Sri Caitanya:

The sun’s rising and I’m off to the North Sydney Hare Krishna Temple (Corner Miller and Falcon Streets) to cook a 13-course dinner feast for 800. Yes, of course I’ve got some helpers. Many, in fact. And there’s room for more if you wish to assist.

And dinner is free of charge, though any contributions are welcome. It’s the culmination of a day of chanting, fasting and festivities celebrating the yearly full-moon birthday celebration of Sri Caitanya, the most recent avatar of Krishnawho appeared in West Bengal in the fifteenth century.

See you there, 5.30 pm culminating with the feast at 8.00pm! Chant and be happy!

Postscript: The feast was a grand success, well over 700 guests attended, and I spent today getting myself back into shape for a busy cookery weekend. ‘No rest for the wicked’.
