Before we even arrived in Edinburgh, Stan began social networking with the Foodie community here. It is a strong, vibrant one and we've made many friends through it. One thing we happily stumbled into was Connie Bailey's Edinburgh Salon.
About every six weeks, Connie lands on a friend's apartment and cooks an amazing meal. People pay to come enjoy her culinary wonders and it's quite the high brow affair, so the limited slots fill quickly and the events are always unique and delicious. For November, Connie wanted to make a traditional American Thanksgiving meal. So she turned to me and Stan. We were planning on doing something anyhow, so this became our Thanksgiving celebration.
I have to admit, I've been buried in school, so this was mostly Stan's doing. And while Connie usually does all the cooking, these were new recipes to her, so Stan was a huge contributor on this meal. He threw himself into the task with gusto, as did Connie. The final event came together beautifully and per some, was the best Salon yet!
It began with gourmet-American appetizers.
(I played sous-chef on the appetizers!)
Everybody had a great time!
