I visited the Peace Mennonite Community Kitchen before the end of 2006 for the first time. There are five Cooking Clubs in the city of Richmond. I had been attending three of the cooking clubs regularly. They were having a potluck to end the session of 2006. Good timing!
Here are some of the dishes shared by the members of the kitchen.
Andrea brought a Spelt Salad, crunchy and healthy.
Tito made a Cassava Cake. A soft, sticky and sweet dessert. This is a bit too soft for the type that I am accustomed to. I had actually made this a few days ago and will blog my version which is firmer.
Jean shared a Pineapple Pie. Jean only baked the pie crust and for the filling, she used mixes of whipping cream and crushed pineapple. I am sure that there are more ingredients than this.
Shaker made a beautiful platter of Spicy Beef, Lentils Basmati Rice and a cute little Brocolli in the centre. There are three layers … the bottom layer is the rice, the centre brown layer is the spicy beef and topped with more rice, coloured beautifully in orange.
There were some Deviled Eggs. I heard from the party that someone knew somebody who wouldn’t try the egg because of its name! “Deviled” is in reference to the fiery spices (sometimes) added to make the egg stuffing.
Then there is this moist Pumpkin Loaf.
I had a great time at the potluck and thank you everyone for sharing.
I have one more potluck entry for tomorrow. Stay tuned.
