This month the Living Better Group gathered at my house to learn some traditional cooking.
We made plum pudding and Christmas Cake from my grandmother's recipe.
I think the following images sum up the day well.
Here is one prepared earlier for the taste test...
and we duly taste-tested!
Then came the cake making....
My heart soared to see all these people (9) gathered together, chopping, grating, mixing, zesting, weighing, doing what many generations before have done. Sharing, laughing, learning, teaching the old and discovering new ways.
As I creamed my butter and sugar, Brad updated me about his poultry plans and incubation tales as his 3yr old cracked eggs.
This was my "It doesn't get any better than this" moment of the day.
