Tasting sessions at group


Silver Member
Does every group do them and if so what king of things have you made or what interesting things have other people brought in.

So far in the sessions I've made food for, I've made a chicken and sausage hot pot from a SW book, Chinese Chicken and sweetcorn soup and cous cous quiche.

I do a rice ( batchelors garlic) bake, frylight fried onions, peppers tomatoes and peas , whip up a couple of eggs, mix it all up and put in the oven for 40 mins at 200c. You can add quark, but I don't bother. Free on a green day or EE.

We try to have them monthly in our class. I took in Mini Caramel Snack-a-Jaks topped with a spoonful of quark with white options and a button on top (work out 1 syn each).

My mum has made a wicked Biriyani before, which I really fancy now I think about it lol

That's so sad that you don't get to do them or not very often :( We have one on the last week of every month.

Why don't you suggest it to your group, are you allowed to make suggestions for things you want to do aren't you?
We made a request/suggestion last week for a before and after board. We used to have one with our old consultant and the new consultant has said several times that she will get a new board for us but she never gets around to it. So I'm taking in an old cork board that I've got and we'll start one going this Tuesday at WI.


Finding inspiration
We have them fairly reguarly... I made a veg/pasta bake with Mozarella (as a HexA), Scan Bran Fererro Rocher, Lasagne from the magazine, the berry terrine from the magazine (which is fabulous by the way!)... can't think now. I usually bring a couple of things.


we have them every month at my class. ive made the liver and bacon pate and creamy bbq chicken and they both went down a storm with everyone :)


loves food and cooking
I know my consultant tries to hold them monthly, but in reality it works out about every 6 weeks.

Previously, I have taken rice pudding (made with muller light), a huge bowl of jelly/mouse, some liver and bacon pate with melba toast.

We have one this week, and I am wondering about taking a chocolate fat free sponge cake layered with 0% greek yogurt.

We have them regularly too - you learn so much! We always take something, usually a Scan Bran cake of some sort. Last week hubby made a microwaved Parkin, and we took some mini lollies with frozen Mullerlight yogurt in IKEA "berry" ice cube moulds, with a cocktail stick in them - NOT suitable for children!

Very popular despite it being bitterly cold all day - I'd had the central heating on all afternoon AND worn a fleece indoors, was the coldest since the snow in Feb! It had been so hot shortly before, there were all those fantastic posts about freezing Mullerlight AND Asda had the 20p offer...

Even members who don't like Mullerlight said they loved them. It was a bit of a "palaver" getting them to the hall - we had frozen banana slices as well - and involved our plug-in coolsafe!!!

We had a sweet alternatives taste days and there were around 20 dishes to try from. The next one we are doing will be for free food.
