My Scotland relatives who now live in California that we were visiting for Christmas are very hard to shop for. But the one thing we knew they enjoyed was eating.
And sure we cooked while we were there, which they always enjoy, but why not teach them some cool stuff that they can do on their own once we are gone?
It isn’t every day that you get a professional Chef coming to stay, so why not take full advantage of the situation? So we decided to give them an “Asian party snack starter kit” and a coupon for a cooking class with the Chef!
It was a basket filled with all the fixins and tools to whip up some sushi, gyoza and assorted other things.
The lesson was well attended and the pupils fast learners!
Then we feasted on the fruit of the labour. Which was really nice to have a break from freakin turkey!

The gift of food always seems welcome!
