It's a frenchified meat pie - ie pastry with meat, just like the stuff you were talking about! Can I help it if I'm a wumman of high culinary standards?!

Enchilladas... perhaps I'm contributing disproportionately to global warming.

Still, they taste good. I think I'm going to have a shot at making some enchilladas in the near future.

I've taken a LOT of culinary courses - both here and in Europe. I honestly don't know what you are talking about with your comment about come dine with me.

Now, if you want to know a recipe for a pithivier, just ask!

Or some cheese and ham chimichangas

My son is doing his first year at Gulf Chef School here in Muscat and on Saturday started his internship at the Intercontinental Hotel under Exec Chef Austin (a Jock like us !).

Yesterday, though, was a no-go. When he got to the hotel, entry was blocked by demonstrating Omani hotel workers demanding higher wages. I guess that meant no dinner for hotel guests yesterday. Demonstrations for higher wages for Omanis are gathering force in many walks of life. As it is, demonstrations closed down the Crowne Plaza Hotel today.

There goes Oman's tourist industry !

How interesting that your son is attending chef school. I love to cook - I've been on courses at lots of culinary schools in the UK and in Europe - Jean-Christoph Novelli for puddings, Anton Mossiman's Academy for various different types of cooking. Le Cordon Bleu in Paris (more years ago than I care to admit!) - and one of my favourites, a Scots chef, Nick Nairn. I've been on a number of courses at his school at the Lake of Menteith.

The Gulf is hotting up, eh no? Wonder when the Arab League will actually pull their finger out and address the Libyan crisis - or do more than 'call for' a no-fly zone?
