On a visit to a working museum set in an old copper mine complex brought some very unexpected pleasures and experiences. After the obligatory rid on the train down into the bowels of the earth – well a few hundred metres anyway, we came back up and took the trourist route to see what the rest of the barns contained. Amongst the predictable grocery store exhibits of original food packages and tins and old washing dollies etc were some more interesting ones like the history of chocolate, with a chance to make a lolly each. Then there was the bread roll making . . . delicious. That prompted some of us to take advantage of a cookery session to be booked there and then. From that began an interest in other cookery courses and great fun has been had by all of us who now meet up on a regular basis every few months at other culinary education episodes!
