Where in the World Have I Been?

A Visit to Thailand This Spring

Elephant Trekking outside Phuket

Elephant Trekking outside Phuket

In late April, Thailand is already near 90 degrees F, and 85% humidity, but that didn't surprise my husband, John and I. What surprised us, was how great the food was, friendly people, and amazing natural beauty of beaches, bays, and surrounding islands.

I took a couple of Thai Cooking Classes, and ventured to their food markets--not for the faint of heart. Much different from our Farmers Markets. Loved the curries, seafood, and tropical fruit such as Dragon Fruit, Roseapple, and Phuket Pineapple.

Could there be a future "A Taste of Thai" Cooking Class?

 

A Memorable Stay in Hong Kong

I was pleasantly surprised by Hong Kong too, a beautiful intersection of East meets West. Hong Kong harbor is one of the most beautiful I have ever seen. The shopping is simply incredible, and I couldn't get enough Dim Sum!

 

Jazzy New Orleans

Sunset Over the Mississippi and Jackson Square

I definitely will be hosting "A Taste of Cajun/Creole Class" from the two very different cooking classes I took over on Algier Point, a 7 minute ferry ride from downtown New Orleans. I can't really say enough about New Orleans, I loved the food, music, architecture, and fun vibe. 

 

"Home Sweet Home"

There is nothing like traveling afar, only to return to your "Home Sweet Home" and keep all of those fun memories close. Please join me for June and July "Lunch in Provence" cooking classes and culinary experiences!

A bientôt....Bonnie
