A few years ago when I was teaching Food Studies the school decided to close the kitchens for refurbishment. Just great when you have 6 classes of Food Studies and another 4 Senior classes of Hospitality. My staff were not pleased and neither was I but I put my thinking cap on and came up with a Semester of "Outdoor Cookery" classes.
I begged, borrowed and stole BBQ's from where ever I could find them and we set the classes up in the grounds and then when it rained under the walkways. They were some of the most successful classes I have ever run and the kids just loved them. One of the BBQ's that a parent lent us was a Weber Kettle. This thing could cook anything and I have always wanted one but of course the male of the house thought they were a waste of money.
But today I bought a Weber Genesis E 330 gas model. It was very expensive but I need to spoil myself once in a while. Usually they deliver and assemble them but not to an island so it will be delivered to my son who will bring it over and we will assemble it ourselves. Gee I hope it gets here before Easter when I have visitors coming over.
