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.
We hosted our Gourmet Group for a Oktoberfest Dinner Party. C’mon in and take a look at our fun evening.
The colors of the Oktoberfest Flag & German/Oktoberfest treats greeted our guests at the door.
Giant pretzels and German candies – Haribou gummies and sours and Kinder Riegel chocolate bars
ART OF THE TABLE
