Jenny Teaches First Cooking Class

And she got paid for it! Whoo Hoo!!

Some time back, I mentioned that I roped Jenny into offering Oriental Cooking Classes. Well she never got enough students but that ad in the paper did pay off. She got a cold call a few months ago from someone representing a local women's group called "Circle Of Friends". She got invited to their meeting and after describing her cooking class idea, the committee members decided to try Jenny out. So tonight she demonstrated cooking a Malaysian dinner for six women who then enjoyed the meal.

It went pretty well although she felt there were a few disasters. Chicken fell apart. Rice was too wet. Meanwhile, the ladies complained that the chicken had bones and the prawns had shells (Brits!). That said, there were no leftovers.

So we're celebrating it as a success. Jenny had lots of fun doing it and the women are encouraging her to create leaflets so they can distribute them.
