Caring Place Potluck 2006


It’s coming to the end of another year. The Caring Place Community Kitchen ended this year’s sessions with a potluck. No cooking demonstration this time, just everyone coming with food to share.

This is a small group but have one the strongest supporters. The numero uno and the assistant group leader of the entire Richmond Cooking Community Kitchen is from this group. From left, Shaker, Angela, Minoo, Jean, Betty, Yvonne and me.

Jean, who always cooks the most and creative dishes, made 3 dishes to share. I am always amazed with her ability to think of so many varied types of food to cook.

The Chicken Pot Pie was flaky and had creamy rich sauce in the fillings.

The Lemon Meringue Pie is really sour. Jean used a lot of lemon juice with this. I like this a lot.

Jean made the Apple/Cabbagge Coleslaw before.

Shaker made Potato Curry. It is mild and not too spicy. I had expected this to be spicy but this is surprisingly good.

Yvonne made a platter of “All Spice” prawns with steam broccoli. The prawns were fried with the shells on and gives gives a very fragrant smell. The platter looks pretty with a good balance of colours.

Betty was in the midst of moving house. Despite that she did not come empty handed but managed to fry some vermicelli for the potluck.

Angela made some pancake with bacon. It was crispy and smoky. Seems like something that my boys would like. I should try this someday at home.

As for Lynn, she brought a lot fruits for dessert. The oranges were carved very nicely. We told ourselves that we should have a session or two on fruit/vegetable carving next year. Sounds like a great idea.

The Kitchen is taking a few weeks break and will commence in early January. This Kitchen meets twice a month on Thursday mornings. This is a great place to meet new friends and learn cooking. It is fun and I enjoyed it very much. Minoo and Jean were awesome leaders and made everyone feel belong. Let me know if you could come and attend our sessions. Send me an email at chowtimes@gmail.com.

So ladies, thank you for sharing your time and your recipes. I had a great time this year. Happy holidays and look forward to seeing you all next year.
