other source hereabouts for me to work from...all I can find on the web (all over the world) is the offer to stay and cook and these are quite expensive...
I want to offer just a morning/days do...I do have a studio for one couple which we could do a longer stay at a later date but for now I am thinking just of a day thing.
Food is expensive here so I cant do it as cheaply as I see in Thailand for eg....

how much would you pay for:
1......pick up at 9.30am a drive to the market place......buy some foods...I will have to have other foodstufs either soaking (like salt fish)
Pass by a smallholding for some veg/salad and back to my house.....Cook and eat from 11.30am, finish 2pm......

AND who pays for the ingredients?...some of these like crayfish is quite expensive...
A BIG help/suggestion on this please...


2.....Then...how do they get away from my house....I dont want to hit the traffic and take them home...

3....I could do this in their villa/condo but so often I would have to lug loads of pots and pans...and then I would also have to wait till they finished eating to wash up/take my dishes home again.....(unless I use foil pans...could work for a few dishes).

The fish here is dubious because of siguatura, we get most frozen....also we use frozen conch a lot as it is fished out...crayfish is hard to buy at the market, I'd organize that through another source.......

I have this idea so far (very loose)...

Met with a rum/fruit drink and the recipe

Appertizer: Accras (salt fish balls...fried) with greens and dip. or Okra (lady fingers..fried)

Starter: Soup....pumpkin, sweet potato, or whatever.

Entree: Fish, crayfish, conch curry, chicken curry salad or whatever.

Dessert: Ummmmmm, there are a few to choose from.

We grow our own coconuts so I thought I could get the gardener to show them how to open one ...use it too...or drink from it.
We also grow some things we can pick but the garden is not prolific and does not produce loads for more than a few months.

This must be easy for them to do on their own....it must pay me to do this and give them a good outing and meal.

TIA
