The first session of our 5-day Belgian cookery seminar was held yesterday. I must say that our new, predominantly Dutch group were the most enthusiastic students I have ever come across. They knew what I wanted almost as I was thinking it, and they executed even the most exacting tasks with ebbulient effervescence.
An old friend of mine from my Melbourne days, Lyall (Now Lal Krishna) flew from Belfast with his wife and also joined the 18-strong class.
A splendid day!
"Nothing is so contagious as enthusiasm; it moves stones, it charms brutes.
Enthusiasm is the genius of sincerity, and truth accomplishes no victories
without it." - Edward Bulwer-Lytton.
