Magellan Club member, Renee Barnstone, will be hosting our February soiree at her home in Grant Park. Please read this message from Renee...
Hello, I am really looking forward to hosting our next Soiree and welcoming you to my home:
The format will be a themed “pot-luck” where everyone can contribute to the meal. As the date of the event is so close to Valentine’s Day, we’ve settled on a Romantic Dinner theme.
I’ve selected a few suggestions for dishes, but of course please feel free to bring your own ideas of your perfect romantic meal to the table. I will provide champagne and wine to accompany the meal. If you are in the mood to make cocktails, please feel free to do so!
As we are expecting up to 25, I am borrowing from the wisdom of others and suggesting that perhaps 2 people prepare the same dish for 8-10 people each for the main course. Therefore, if we select two mains there will be plenty to go around. If the headcount varies, we can be flexible and adjust quantities where required. You are more than welcome to do some last-minute finishing touches, or cooking here.
A word of caution: Pay attention to the number of servings on these recipes. Several are designed with romance in mind and will yield only 2 servings, so keep your calculator handy!
