In December I am conducting 4 workshops in collaboration with Niki's kitchen, all on the theme on Christmas. Participants are making a Christmas ornament made of a doily base and hand-embroidered with sequins. We then share a home-cooked lunch together at the end of the workshop.
I had the first two workshops this past week (on Tuesday and Thursday), and it was fantastic! I served spinach quiche, vegetable soup, a cake and vin chaud for lunch and we all spend a very great and creative moment. My participants were friendly and they enjoyed making new friends and sharing a couple of hours together at my home. Here are a couple of pictures taken during the two workshops. I haven't taken any pics of the finished projects, as I was as busy as a bee in my kitchen getting our lunch ready to be served. I will do better next time!
The chocolate cake above is a recipe by Nigella Lawson, her infamous old-fashioned chocolate cake that was passed on to me a couple of years ago by my good friend Hilary. Scrumptious!
