We were trained by the best! Our instructor was former butcher and last year's salami making winner and he demonstrated how to break down a pig and made it look so easy. We worked with an young Italian couple who both have families that have their own tradition but they wanted to learn more hence signed up to the class. It was a lot of fun and we really learnt a lot about pork and curing it but I don't think we'll commit to this tradition. It's a big investment in machinery and we don't have the space. Somehow I think hanging the salami in our storage cage in the underground car park where the bins are also kept make a successful recipe!
I've had a couple of post work dinners and drinks with work colleagues, with Kirsty, with Stef for her birthday and Steve has moved away from being extremely busy with work to being extremely busy with client entertainnment! I guess after the hard work comes the socialising.
Only 3 weeks until our UK trip, It's coming round quick. From the photos I've seen the weather is not unlike what we've been experience here. Days of sunshine, days of rain. Amelia has been taking advantage of the Spring weather and fresh air these couple of weeks and has spent time in the garden and at the beach. Not sure it's the weather for ice cream though!
