Cooking School - Part 3

On the last night of the cooking course we were served champagne as we graduated with flying colours !

After our award ceremony, Philippe prepared the most wonderful seafood and chicken paella from a recipe given to him by Maria Larragnara, an old lady friend in his village. He cooked outside on a special gas burner and dish which would be ideal for our summer entertaining too.

 The finished result was the MOST delicious paella you could ever taste !

 We drank fresh spring water from a well in their garden ...

... and a memorable red, or two ...

Philippe entertained us some more ...
... which sadly brought us to the conclusion of our culinary journey.

Merci beaucoup and au revoir dear Marie Pierre and Philippe from your kangaroo friends from under the ground ! xxx


  1. Wow. I'm worried because I don't see how my slow cooker can compete against the excellent dishes you have been cooking up.

  2. Never fear dear Braize - I will be delighted to enjoy one of your slow cooked meals ... xx
