July 17 Update

I have spent the last few days in Winster, Derbyshire, UK, to attend one of my best friend´s wedding. On the special day we had great weather, almost like in Spain!. The town is small, cosy and picturesque.

View from our Bedroom at the Dower House, Winster.

The house has 4 lovely and spacious bedrooms for rent, the price includes a wonderful Country Style English Breakfast, cooked on their AGA range, a cooker that I hope to have for myself one day…

One of the beautiful Cottages in the Peak District.

One thing that I like about the Countryside is the big open green spaces.

Rose and I spent the day before the wedding visiting Chatsworth House.

The day really belonged to Helen and John.

At the reception, it was Roasted Hog on the menu….

Last year, around the same time, I went to my other best friend´s wedding, Ben and Sally.

Different suit, less weight, more hair……

It looks like that I am the last to take “the big leap”. Who knows….

Anyway, it is customary at all weddings to dance and be merry, and trust me, I did just that…

I usually do my online shopping (for English language products) at Play.com. They deliver free in Europe, which is handy for me, and they have a wide range of products. The latest products that I have purchased are:

Dead Like Me, Series One. Wonderfully dark and funny.

The Templar Legacy, the book that I am currently reading.

Meanwhile, back in the Kitchens….

During my short holiday, King has been taking over the reigns at the LC Kitchens.

In my absence, they have been working on a New Style “Tum Mak Deng with Lime Sorbet” and “Rice Popcorn”, both of these should feature soon on our Amuse Bouche dishes.
