Gourmet Evenings

Gourmet Evenings

Those of you who are fond of gourmet food, may find the gourmet evenings offered by Bronzefield women's prison in Ashford to be of interest.

Seemingly house of horrors killer, Rose West, and the other inmates of Bronzefield have been treated to an evening of gourmet food and opera singing in prison.

West was jailed in 1995 over a series of murders she committed with her husband Fred.

West and 400 fellow prisoners were offered a menu comprising chicken supreme in tomato and garlic with olives and Parmesan or baked fish with asparagus, fennel and mushrooms.

The meal was rounded off with tiramisu and cups of coffee.

The inmates were then serenaded by two Italian singers, who performed operatic arias to backing tapes.

Last week's Italian Day was not a unique event, previous evenings have included Mexican and Jamaican themed events.

The food cost the same as any other day in the prison, this is a lesson for those people who claim that cooking good food is an expensive luxury.
