We had so much fun. We learned interesting facts and stories related to the Victorian Christmas and where traditions came from. I learned there are no Plumbs in Plumb Pudding, and it's DELICIOUS! We also had hands on time decorating a Gingerbread House

I am delighted that you have enjoyed your experiences with A La Carte Food Tours Kitchen Clinics. You did a better job of describing Kitchen Clinics than I've managed up to this point. I hope to see you again very soon at another Kitchen Clinic.
