From Malaya to Spain, for a tasty treat.
Our October Malaysian chef Sok-Tin Wild had to go into hospital unexpectedly, so at 4 days notice
Steven Parks stepped in the breach and demonstrated Spanish cooking for us.
At the same time he showed us how to make a real Spanish Tortilla. Chopped Potatoes and a few onions simmered in oil for 15 minutes and then when drained, lots of eggs from his three chickens were added. ( One who does not lay, one who had a cyst on her chest - which in fact left one chicken to do all the hard work.) Delicious food, and enough for 31 of us to share.
It was a very good evening with 7 guests who all seemed to enjoy themselves, and we wonder whether the TV producers will introduce a new follow up programme to 'Come Dine with Me' called 'Come dine with me Outdoors', or ' Come camp with me' to promote cooking outdoors.
If ever a speaker has to cancel ,we shall keep Steven's number handy for more culinary treats.
