I found last Friday’s class to be utterly remarkable as the combination of music and eating was so pleasurable. This week’s recipes were quite exotic I must say and the improvisation was most definitely difficult to follow. I luckily had the easiest recipe(apples) which turned out great. I loved experimenting with the different spices and I think I am finally getting the hang of deciphering which spices suit each other best.
However, I can only imagine how difficult it was to make a sauce that was supposed to have the texture of cinnamon! Also I had the opportunity to learn what grouse were, a foul I didn’t even knew existed prior to this class. I love experimenting with different kinds of meats, as there are plentiful variety of fruits, vegetables, and grains available; however, the amount of different types of meats and fish are limited in my everyday diet.
The music, indeed, I found to be the true pleasure of this evening. I was astounded to hear how serious the music was as I am used to music during meals to be light hearted and soft in the background to give way for conversation. The seriousness of the music made me realize the significance of the feast. I am heavily enjoying how each week contributes to this theme: from the tapestries, to health, to music! Also, the singers were exceptionally talented and really brought the class to life.
