On Saturday evening we attended a concert by Kimbolton School Chamber Choir. I made a few canapes for the interval (watermelon, mint, olive and feta (posh cheese on sticks) and smoked salmon tarts) . The classical music was wonderful but I think our favourite pieces were Surfing USA - chamber music style - and a wonderful rendition of Tears in Heaven - which gave me goosebumps!
Sunday was spent preparing for the next photo shoot with Country Kitchen Magazine which took place last night - 4 smoked salmon and 4 quince recipes. I think that my husband will be quite glad that this is now over as we have eaten nothing but smoked salmon and quinces all week!!!! We manage to photograph the quince sorbet in the garden and it looked positively summery - despite the constant rain! Quince cake, pork and quince casserole and quince brandy were also on the menu, together with a smoked salmon and caramelised onion slice, potted smoked salmon, a summer (!) salad and salon fillets with a smoked salmon and asparagus sauce! We had a feast last night after the photo shoot eating all 7 dishes and drinking the quince brandy!
