Krimo's future chefs...

When a teacher from Jesmond Road School asked if she could bring a couple of pupils round to Portofino as they are learning all about Italina food, I expected some teenagers.
And then Matthew and Bethany landed this morning to see how our restaurant operates.
Two adorable five-year olds, keen to learn how to make pizzas and pastas.

Then they sat to taste their own cooking. Kim served then and between the two of them they wolfed down a massive pizza. Actually, I pinched slices.
Once they finished their gourmet meal, they were kind enough to take a pizza back to school for their friends.

Great morning at Portofino.

What a great experience for them - not just the creating pizza but sitting down to eat it like grown ups.
I remember on holiday in Keswick - aged nine - and a friend dared me to go into one of the posh cafes for tea and cake. I did - heart in mouth - was served by a waitress beautifully dressed in uniform - as they were in the thirties- and it was quite a memorable occasion for me. I even left a tip which must have cleared out my money box.

Beautiful memories, Pat.
The two kids were really polite.
When I asked why they were chosen out of the entire class, Matthew said: "Because we were good people..."

Fins gourmets, gourmands et peut-être de futurs Grands-Chefs.

Il ne faut surtout pas oublier leur nom.

Je pense que vous avez passé avec eux un agréable moment.

Eh, ben oui. Ils etaient formidables. Tres polis et sages.
J'espere que leur visite leur aura appris quelque chose pour leur projet scolaire.

Yes, they both were so charming and they really enjoyed that pizza.
I am really well and I hope you are too in sunny California, Val.
