Birthday Present

My DH turned the big 50 on Easter Sunday. Yes yes I can hear you all doing the maths. I cradle snatched. Anyway as I was saying....I wanted to do something special.
There is a restaurant at Yandina on the Sunshine Coast that does cooking lessons.
The Spirit House has wonderful atmosphere and delicious thai food. It also has a cooking school set among the tropical gardens. That's DH standing outside the school, holding his just purchased cookbook.
Here he is stirring the wok.














The photo (above left) is the class kitchen. The photo on the left is us sitting down to a truly scrumptious meal with wine at the end of the class. We were there for about 5 hours. We got free recipes, lots of hints, met some nice people, walked around the grounds and through the restaurant. I would love to go back to the restaurant for a meal and the cooking school as there were lots of other classes on offer.
In the paper bag in the first photo is also our dessert. We sat in the car park with a tub of Spirit House ice cream and 2 spoons. It was delicious!

What a lovely present and something different to do. Hope Hubby is going to do all the cooking now and you can feel like you are having your birthday for the rest of the year. LOL!
