I distinctly remember there is a group meeting at love2travel's place..and she promised to do pick up at the airport in Edmonton.... Am I right love2travel? :huh: Wasn't that a group meeting?

Well there you go...she posted before I could... :) It's a date! :D

I'll pick up whomever is waiting for me at the Edmonton airport. You're in luck if you get here before 5 PM as I am teaching a yummy cooking class tomorrow. We are making:

Apple Cider Brine for Pork Loin (am making in advance, of course)

Balsamic Ginger Marinade for Shrimp

Honey Scallion Ginger Vinaigrette

Vanilla Bean Vinaigrette

a la Turque Vinaigrette (Turkish with pomegranate molasses, mint, etc.)

Pickled Onion Rings in Rose Water

Honey Apple Cider Vinaigrette with Spiced Walnuts

Caramelized Shallot Vinaigrette

Fig and Stilton Salad with Port Wine Vinaigrette

I've bought a whole bunch of cool greens and fixings to go with the above including endive, frisee, radicchio, various nuts to roast, pears to slice, fresh herbs, dried figs and various cheeses.

Should be delicious! Hopefully the students will love it...sometimes I get nervous about these things.
