Who says you can’t teach an old dog new tricks…

not smoking cooking

 

Well they say you can’t teach an old dog new tricks but I’ve just completed a “Cooking for 1 or 2” course which is run over a period of 5 weeks…

I’ve learnt all sorts of things like… how to work out if I should have red or white wine with a meal or both…

This course is run by the Department of Vet Affairs with the assistance of the Local Returned and Services League (RSL) Australia in conjunction with the Newcastle University. You get to learn about (ok forget the wine) nutrition, basic health issues, different types of foods and what amounts to eat, cross contamination plus more.   Actually I found the course to be very enjoyable even though I was volunteered for the course (feels like I am still in the Army).

Three ladies from the University of Newcastle that were undertaking a degree were our instructors for the five weeks.   They were great and fitted in with our mad group of ex Military personell.

Some pictures of the food…. and seriously we did cook it and didn’t get sick afterwards either.   Sadly though I think I have become a tad domesticated 🙁 which I suppose could be a good thing but I am not so sure…
