‘I have been happily thinking over our lovely day together and I am very happy that I was able to be part of it. Thank you to you all: great humour, great company, a fabulous welcome from Lisa to us all with understated but very generous kindness to everyone who came. We had a great time.
I won’t embarrass Lisa by going on here, but the quiet, hard work and understated generosity of spirit was the secret ingredient which made it all “tick”. Anna del Conte doesn’t like people or make compliments loosely, but she rates Lisa and I do too. Enough said.
I hope that our nascent friendship will prosper and I hope that you will, like me when I visit your part of the world, feel comfortable to stay with us if you find yourselves in Scotland.’
‘It has been so enjoyable getting thank you notes this week. You get rave reviews. They loved meeting you, talking to you, and of course-eating the delicious food. Our week together is now a wonderful memory. You were absolutely the perfect person for the job. I think being a guest chef should be on your services list.’
