“Fore”: Gourmet Group Has a Golf-Themed Dinner Party

A little 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.

“FORE”

Another couple in our Gourmet Group hosted back in April.

About 3-4 weeks prior to that day, they were asked to have a milestone birthday party for a family member (a golfer) at their house a week before our previously-set Gourmet date.

To take some of the burden off of them with hosting two events back-to-back, our Gourmet Group agreed it would be perfectly fine for them to have a more informal Gourmet Dinner.  After all, it is really about our group just getting together and the food being secondary.

The couple decided on a “Golf-Themed Dinner”, since they already had decorations from the other party.  Here’s a look back at our evening.

THE TABLESCAPE

Green and gold were the primary colors of the table

Two faux plants give the idea of grass…

“GREENS” (SALAD COURSE)

This couple loves blue cheese dressing, so they very appropriately made a Wedge Salad

Besides the greens and dressing, the salad had bacon, cherry tomatoes, hard-boiled eggs, and avocado in it.

Their wedge salad could rival one from a restaurant anytime…
