I thought fellow Craftsters might enjoy this idea. My sister and I have assembled a diverse group of our friends, who all eat food, learning and meeting new people. We meet the third Sunday of each month, each time at someone else's home. The host gets to pick the theme and recipes and purchases the ingredients. The attendees get to show up with $10 each to donate to the food costs. The host has everything set up, Magic Chef style. We spend a while cooking everything, then sit down and enjoy a great meal and conversation. This has been a great alternative to a "Leisure Guide" class where you are in a high school home-ec class with a bunch of strangers.
This is the photo of our "Japanese Day"... which certainly ups the standards for the next round. We had Chicken Don Buri, Miso Soup and a spinach salad. And of course, Green Tea.
Any suggestions for what I should do for my day??? Mine is in 3 weeks...
Okay! My Class Day was yesterday. I settled on Crepes, although there were SOOO many suggestions from all of you it was hard to choose. We has both savory and sweet crepes. I made the batter ahead of time, and let everyone try making them. Some disaster crepes occurred in the shapes of elephants and amoebas, but it all tasted great. Champagne mimosas went well with the whole thing, and other than a million and a half dishes it was a great success.
Crepes, garlic and chive cheese sauce, prosciutto, avocado, gruyere, hot apples and cinnamon, peaches, strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, lemon, whipping creme, icing sugar, nutella and of course, real Canadian Maple Syrup from Quebec.
