Cooking classes

Every month I have at least 1 or 2 cooking classes, and I just LOVE it!!

There is always something new you learn, some new techniques, some new spices, some new combinations or flavors. And then on top of that, you get to hang out with other women with like minded interests.

So I am part of DISC ~ Dainfern International Social Club that has once a month a coffee morning and we talk about events, we meet a lot of new people and we form groups. These groups can be anything from quilting, to hiking, to photography, cooking, sewing... you name it and there is a group.



One of these groups I am part of and that is.... you guessed it right :-) the cooking group. A French lady; Johana is giving these cooking classes. She went to a culinary school in France, so she knows all the techniques and methods to create classical French dishes... yum yum!! She creates a menu and if you are interested in that particular menu you can sign up for the lesson, and the best part eating of it after the class is done. And as the French do... with a glass of vino... of course!!

Last time I went we learned how to make risotto and tiramisu. I don't need to say... we had a wonderful time! Each time we meet at a different house, and each time it is with a different group of women, and each time of course a different menu... so it never gets boring, and I can do this forever. Because good food and good company is always fun!!

Pretty good life I lead as an expat wife... you don't hear me complaining :-)

Do you have such a good life as well?? I hope so!!

Ciao Bellas,
Mireille

Hi there! I am the gal that sent you an email with questions about expat life in Jo'burg with kids. I was just reading your blog again and saw this post. I'm so excited because I came across Dainfern today as a potential area to look at living. This sounds exactly like what we are looking for as far as our living situation over there. My husband and I are scheduled to fly over to look at schools and housing the week of March 4th. I would love to get in touch prior to our arrival...I'm sure you would have many suggestions and "direction" as we embark on this exciting opportunity with our family. I look forward to hearing from you. Sincerely, Paige Doty
