Dear Ru 

It was an amazing day and we are indebted to you for such a fantastic experience.  
We will indeed be back for more once we have shared some of the skills you taught us. 
We are having all the family here on Sunday for dinner to practice our cooking on them. 
They all enjoyed tasting the food we brought back last week.  
Thanks also for the fab photos. We have no objection to you using them. We had such a fun time and thank you so very much for allowing us into your kitchen.  

Many thanks Craig and Margaret.
