Some info about our Gourmet Group: We are 4 couples who enjoy cooking, entertaining, and most of all, each other’s company.
We take turns hosting in our homes. The hosts decide on the menu (theme) from appetizers to dessert for the evening. The hosts cook most of the meal, but give at least one course (along with all the recipes) to the other couples to prepare. We love trying new recipes and ideas. So most of the time, the recipes are ones we haven’t cooked before, but they don’t have to be.
Another couple in our Gourmet Group hosted an “Italian Dinner” night at their house. Here’s a look at the beautiful Italian-themed tablescape she put together.

I just love all the little details to her table centerpiece…
