Blueberry scones demo

 Kelly Mauger demonstrated four different bakes for us - carrot and seeded soda bread, blueberry scones, min milk-doughnuts, and nutella brownies. We sampled them all - scrumptious!
Everything passed the taste test!

 Then we had a short tour of Denman followed by an afternoon tea in the Nugent Harris room. We all had a lovely day.

July 2019 - 'A Spoonful of Herbs'

In July we had a fascinating talk by Lynda Warren.
This featured the countries and people who introduced us to herbs. We heard how they have been used in cookery, beauty products, household applications and medicines.

We were able to try out some recipes which Lynda had prepared with her herbs. We were also able to take some cuttings of herbs home with us with a very instructive handout.
