My partner is thinking about starting a little business and I was wondering if people thought it might be something they may be interested in... She is thinking about offering cooking classes for any food the client wants in a couple of different ways: We're thinking of offering it as a 'Ann Summers' type party where the host gets their friends round to their house and she shows them all how to cook a couple of dishes of their choice then leaves them to eat it. And/or, she goes to a customers house and shows them how to cook a meal in front of them so they can do it for themselves in the future (a personal Delia!). And/or she provides a day course for a party of people where she can show them how to cook as many dishes as possible. Do you think that is something that you may be intersted in? Maybe as an alternative to eating out? After all, being cooked for in the comfort of your own home and sitting down to eat it in front of the telly isn't a bad idea. A sort of healty take away... All feedback welcome good or bad (even if it's just a "I'd use it occasionally" or "I'd not use it, ever") just so we can gauge if it's a worthwhile idea. Thanks in advance. Dan.
Hi, Does anyone else find the cost of food in supermarkets here high? Is it just becasue there is not too much competition. We found this even before the sterling:euro ex rate changed. In fact, it seems that the price of most things (clothes, electrical equipment etc) is high too. Thanks
Does anyone know if you can you buy decent vegetarian food products locally? I know I can get great fruit and vegetables in the local supermarket (the bananas are a bit poor though). But it's important to get a decent balanced diet, and while I love cooking sometimes I just don't have the time to soak beans or whatever else. In Australia or London it's easy to just go into a supermarket and buy ready made vegetarian meals. Is there anything like that available here?
I currently operate 14 stores throughout Cyprus retailing UK branded frozen foods & Uk branded dry products (foods, detergents, toiletries, haircare etc). Our business is very successful here in Cyprus due to our prices which in the main are the cheapest on the island. We are considering replicating this in the Benidorm, Alicante, Altea and Calpe Areas and would be interested on some feedback from residents in those areas. I look forward to receiving forum members coments.
Can anyone recommend where to go for a great Christmas Day Dinner and a great New Years Eve? And for that matter a good Christmas Eve too! We will be in La Sella so Denia/Javea region is most convenient - would like a bit of an atmosphere and will be just 3 - 2 parents and an 11 year old daughter. Any and all recommendations will be much appreciated and of course I don't mind being contacted if you are a restaurant owner with an event make me aware of!! Thansks!
