If you have an AGA it is like being in a club
As we do not have a show on Mondays, I took the opportunity to go and see Fiona Burrell at the New Town Edinburgh Cookery School. Her school boasts an AGA, 4 oven and they have held some AGA days recently. It was good to catch up and indeed have a chance to explain the new AGA Dual Control and how it fits into the tremendous choice of AGA cookers available nowadays. New Town Edinburgh Cookery School has some amazing classes, some Australian friends of Mrs M's had visited on Saturday for a baking day and came away with lots of goodies they had made and of which they were very proud.
Showtime today at 12.30 to another full house. The international theme continued with American, German and Australian visitors. All countries where AGA is sold.
The AGA shop team as ever made sure everything ran smoothly. Recently we were also joined by Maureen Paterson, who used to demonstrate for us, ex-chair of The Association of Home Economics and former Home Economist with the Scottish Solid Fuel Advisory Service. Maureen got volunteered into helping to give out tasters to the audience.
Tomorrow evening we have a private viewing at the shop. So tonight it was late when I left, as I locked up there were a lovely couple from near Dublin who were 'drooling' over the AGA in the window and we had a little AGA chat - the gentleman's mother has a cream AGA in Ireland - just like Mary Berry says, if you have an AGA it is like being in a club. How lovely it is to strike up a conversation with strangers.
Edinburgh is very busy during 'fringe' and festival month, lots of people day and night. Just take a look at the crowds in the Royal Mile.
