When Lockdown started in Scotland, we knew here at SOGA that this would have serious effects on the students under our care, but also for ourselves in how we live our lives.
Luckily, here at 52 Glasgow Road we have a lovely garden and outdoor space to enjoy the summer. But we also have a great kitchen, and someone who knows how to use it!
Peter has been cooking up a storm, and the effects of good eating have done wonders to ease the tensions and anxieties of lockdown and trying to get home for the summer.
Peter is not just Pam's husband, but also an experienced fishmonger and chef. His years spent as a restaurateur, chef, and fishmonger has left him with a passion for cooking and fresh ingredients. Students who eat in Peter's kitchen during their exeats from school always leave with a smile on their face.
With lockdown in effect, many students have returned to their home countries for the duration of the pandemic. Everyone at SOGA wishes them and their families only the best of wishes. However some students have not been able to return home. During May, finding a seat on a plane to China, South Korea, or Mexico was almost impossible. This was a frustration for some of our students, who were left in an agonising position.
Thankfully they could not have been 'stranded' in a better place. Because they were with SOGA, the students still at Glasgow Road were in for a treat. Peter has been cooking up a storm, and the effects of good eating have done wonders to ease the tensions and anxieties of lockdown and trying to get home for the summer.
Just look at some of the delicious dishes Peter has been posting on Facebook over the past few weeks. Waking up to this menu makes Lockdown just another day in paradise.
