Men Cooking Dinner
Bernie Gibbon’s photos in the Photo Gallery show just what a bunch of Lerryn men can do in the way of preparing a sumptuous feast (when properly taught and supervised, of course).
On 11th and 12th of February, men, 14 in all, from Friends of Boconnoc Church (and their friends) worked in the Boconnnoc Soane Room kitchens, under the supervision of Gill Forster, to prepare a Valentine’s dinner for over 40 diners. Stuffed chicken in phylo pastry, potatoes boulangerie carrots and broccoli, blinis (cooked from scratch) with smoked salmon, and magnificent chocolate mousses with little heart biscuits, all were prepared and served by this magnificent band of gents.
The dinner, on the evening of 12 February, was a companionable affair, and the food served with such panache was universally declared to be magnificent. Gill, who had persevered (without a cross, let alone an “f****”, word) with a variety of setbacks, was roundly applauded and presented with a bouquet.
