					Quite a few items below for info, think it might take a bit of time to digest it all! It seems everyone is
on creative food tangents! Also a question re what should we do at the 8th September meeting?



What do we want to do at the 8th Sept meeting?



We don't have a talk or anything else planned for the meeting on 8th Sept at Collessie Hall and I
wondered what people were interested in doing/hearing about? Talk? Workshop? Food frenzy?
Food tasting? Film & discussion ? Would love to hear what you would want to do........PLEASE email
suggestions.....not much time to get it together..
