Gourmet Holiday in the Forest of Dean 2012
By Wendy Williams
Today we arrived at Bells hotel. We had a cup of tea and unpacked our bags. We had dinner at the hotel. Later we sat in the bar and looked at our programme. We talked about the languages spoken in each country and we looked at the map to see where the countries are.

We got up and had a massive English breakfast. We then went to the coffee shop and sorted out our shopping lists. We went round getting all we needed for the recipes. We went out for lunch and then started our cooking. We made Thai balls and Thai green chicken curry. The house we are staying in is amazing. We have an enormous kitchen which is great for cooking. After dinner we had fresh fruit and a chocolate fountain.

We are visiting America today. We had pancakes for breakfast, we tried tossing them, all the men dropped them ion the floor, all the ladies managed to catch them. We made Elvis’s meatloaf and strawberry cheesecake. We went to Smarts Farm and watched them making cheese. We went into the store for a taster. Some of us brought some cheese we went to see the calves and the Gloucester old spot pigs.

Bonjour. We started the day with croissants and brioche and coffee. We cooked Quiches for lunch and we made Pork Normande and potatoes dauphin Oise and Vichey carrots, green beans and mange tout. For dessert we made crème Brule and we all had a go with the blow torch. We went to the Three Choirs Vineyard and had a tour and wine tasting.

Today is Italy but the weather is not a bit like Italian weather, it’s raining. For breakfast we had cold meats and cheese, yogurts and fruit and pastries. For lunch we had pizza. We went to the shops in the afternoon and brought some snacks and presents. We made Mediterranean soup followed by lasagne for dinner and tiramisu for dessert.

Well today is Greece and we're saying kalmia. For breakfast we had Greek yogurt and honey, fruit and coffee. We cooked roasted, pepper hummus for lunch followed by chocolate cake for tea and then we made a Greek meze followed by village sausages and baklavas for dessert. We all voted this is a good holiday.
