I can't find where I read about the book Elaine, but had it written on my calendar for Sunday, so must be correct - "Cooking with Tropical Veg".

I've left Elis. a voicemail and emailed as well (she's a busy lady) and will let you know the outcome.

I can now go to the Saturday workshop at Yandina, so may not go on the Sunday. Mainly after Elisabeth Fekonia's book.
