Next time you sit down in a decent restaurant and you order off the menu, think about what it would take to do the cooking yourself. You first drive to the shopping centre and visit your green grocer, butcher, fish market and liquor shop to buy all the stuff you need. Bring it all back and prepare it before you cook and eat it. Then weigh up the countless hours and effort to make it happen (most of us will agree that is too much hard work).
Think of the seminars as restaurants!!! Everything is table service and brought to you on a silver platter. You don't have to go wondering around from school to school and from country to country to pick up what you need. Leave it to the Master Chefs, Richard Norton and John Will who have already done the hard work for you, with over 60 years of combined experience and travelling from country to country.
The best part of it all is there is no washing up afterwards! Those who think that can get away with McDonald's (the cheap way out), are only going to get what they pay for.
