West Kent WI arranged a revisit from Julia Davies
who demonstrated to members from the county, some tasty and easily prepared food. 
Her lively personality had us in fits of laughter - she described a specialist cooking method as being as difficult ' as milking a mouse'.

 She demonstrated to a full Hall (Hollingbourne believe it or not) One meat dish, two vegetable dishes, one fish dish  - two puds and two drinks.   - A lot was achieved in two hours.
 There was nearly a calamity towards the end - her wonderful Strawberry Cheesecake was in danger of becoming a  lemon one - when the strawberries she had prepared earlier had disappeared. However help was at hand and Christopher in Hollingbourne's Village shop came up trumps with a punnet of strawberries.
At the end we had a chance to try everything( the cooking smells had been very tantilizing) - shown here are Smoked mackerel pate,  and Stuffed peppers. On the right was Sesame Chicken breasts with soured cream ( the jellied beetroot to accompany was off the side of the picture unfortunately.)
It is  helpful when West Kent is able to arranged events on our side of the county and it is being repeated next week with a full house again.
