The year started on 1st March with Helen from California and finished on 28th October with Laurence and Gai from Brisbane and Mike, Jane and Sue from Alaska.
In-between there have been visitors from
all over the USA and Canada (Texas, Georgia, Colorado, Boston, Chicago, Vancouver, Winnipeg, Ontario and Ottawa)
Kazhakstan via Denmark!
all over Australia (Perth, Adelaide, Canberra, Sydney, Melbourne and Cairns)
many many from Scotland (thank you for an interesting and varied debate throughout the year about Scottish independence)
and, of course, England.
Petra and Bruce brought their enthusiastic children - the next generation in the kitchen.
I hope the recipes have been replicated and improved by you all. I have a vision that a hot chocolate fondant is being served somewhere in the world at all times.
Thank you all for coming and thank you for your wonderful email and trip advisor comments - they are very much appreciated. Here are a few of your lovely comments;
Thanks for the lovely day and recipes, Peter! I will definitely be making those dishes at home. I already promised my husband I would make the choc cake! - Helen
It was a wonderful day with you, the beautiful dog Clarky, Carcassonne in the rain, all the spectacular food - Nancy
Thanks so much Peter, for everything. A really lovely weekend and I've already made the pea and broad bean dish for a friend. - Justine
Peter, the visit with you – the market excursion, the cooking in your terrific kitchen and lunch with our men – was a highlight of the trip, no question. - Carol
Thank you for the delightful day of shopping, cooking, and conversation. It was definitely one of the highlights of our trip. I have printed the recipes and will soon be dazzling our friends and family with them. - Holly
