My sister won a contest, sponsored by Maple Leaf, so we, and two friends, were treated to a lovely ‘spa day’. A chef arrived to cook us a delicious lunch, before we each had individual massages, manicures and pedicures. What a lovely indulgence it was!
The salad the chef prepared:
Perfect looking strawberries for the salad:
Prepping the lettuce:
Slicing the strawberries:
Great technique for removing those pesky corn silks:
Corn cobs started in the pot the chef brought with him, chicken (the ‘Maple Leaf’ part), started in his frying pan on the gas stove:
Corn was then moved to a frying pan, fried in bacon fat if I recall correctly…if you didn’t like bacon, not sure you’d enjoy this lunch! lol. 😉
Dicing thick slices of bacon:
Crispy bacon was added to pre-prepared potatoes, part of a potato side dish:
Then it was warmed in the pan…with more bacon fat…yum! It’s certainly not a way I usually eat!
Alice watched the proceedings from the kitchen window:
The finished lunch plate. A wonderful start to our spa day experience.
