Cookery Group

AFB Cookery Group Thursday 26th January 2023

The first cookery group meeting of 2023 took place at Christine Lowbridge’s house. Nine members attended and watched the preparation and cooking of a delicious Italian inspired dish : Spaghetti with prawns

The dish was served in a large bowl, accompanied by garlic bread and grated parmesan, with a garnish of rocket and lemon zest. It looked very colourful and summery. On tasting, the ingredients blended well and created a very flavourful meal. Wonderful to share with friends and family.

Christine had also made a delicious Lemon Cheesecake for the group to have with their teas and coffee.
Thank you Christine for a lovely afternoon
