There was a theme that we noticed about the food at our dinner club last month. It was rich, feel-good, comfort food.
So that's one of the things that I'll think of when I think of our chosen celebrity chef, Emeril Lagasse. Before this dinner, when his name came to mind, my first thought was his popular and very loud catchphrase, "Bam!" I thought he was a bit over the top.
Maybe he is. But I have to say that his recipes combined very well and made for quite an enjoyable and delicious meal.
Looking at these pictures I have to laugh, because there are no people in them. One of the best things about the dinner club is our gathering together as a group. Since reading Kinfolk Magazine, I've been thinking a bit more about the idea of gatherings. How they happen and what makes a successful gathering.
Playing games before and sometimes after the meal is part of the fun too. Since there are usually some new people at our dinners, it gives us a chance to interact in a different way.
The game Apples to Apples is hilarious and I've played it several times now. It's really interesting seeing how people think and make choices. I highly recommend it.
We had two types of macaroni and cheese. What a feast!
Risotto is one of my favorite things. This one was so good. I had to have seconds!
dinner club was one of the best if not the best. Below are the names of the dishes that we cooked with links.
Charlotte's Boursin Roasted Chicken
Macaroni with 4 Cheeses
Maytag Blue Mac and Cheese
Adrienne's Spring Asparagus Risotto
Caramelized Sweet Potatoes
Quick Collard Greens
Anise Biscotti with Lemon Ice Cream
Our next celebrity chef is B. Smith. We'll be gathering very soon and I'm looking forward to it!
