I did hear from the ladies (Phiroza and Delna) that Rita’s Chapat demonstration was a great hit and the proof was in the pudding… as in the Chapats for our Sunday breakfast. They went great with blueberry syrup and we all overate! I’m clamoring for it to be a Sunday repeat😉.
Where We Cook Together, Eat Together and Learn Together!
For our first session we have…
