Spa Day: Toronto Photography

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:

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. 😉

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!
