There has never been an Asian themed night so that's what November's night will be.

    Hey Erica.. the idea of pot luck is we not supposed to say what we are bringing!

    November 4, 2013

    • Erica D.

      Hi Jackie I know I'm sorry its just that it was in the sunday times magazine this weekend and I had been thinking of it and then I thought several people might think of it and its a bit of effort so rather than ......etc etc..I'll bring a real surprise side dish too - something super weird. I won't do it again I promise. Talk about back of the class!

      November 4, 2013

    • Jackie C.

    November 4, 2013

    • Nuala

  • Nuala

    Hi guys, Looking forward to our meetup on Nov 12! Just tried to email all of you with details but not able to in one go - Jackie, I emailed you - do I need to be set up as an organiser?

    Hello Everyone, I know this is a little off topic but I am organizing a table quiz in the Crypt of Christ Church Cathedral for this Friday the 25th at 7.30 pm. Nibbles provided and wine available to buy. Tables of 4 and its €10 per person. All in aid of the equipment fund for the heritage volunteers of the Irish Decorative and Fine Arts Society. If you're interested in coming along or forming a team just let me know. If you could spread the word that would be great! Many thanks, Erica.

      Hi Erica, would have liked to come but had a very busy week at work. Hope plenty turned up and you raised lots of money!

      October 26, 2013

    • Erica D.

      No problem. We had a great night and raised lots of cash - some seasoned quizzers said it was one of the best quizzes they ever went to which was brilliant. We'll turn it into an annual event given the great reception.

    Aghhhhh, got here too late! Will join the waiting list and kick my heels!

    October 18, 2013

    • Nuala

      Mairead sorry, my apartment is tiny! 8 is just about manageable!

      October 19, 2013

    • mairead

      Hi Nuala, no problem whatsoever! That will teach me to be lazy about putting my name down!

      October 19, 2013

  • Jessica L.

    Ladies, I cannot come! That puts Adrienne back in the game so have a good time and I'll see you at the Christmas banquet.

    October 16, 2013

    • Adrienne F.

      Great - looking forward to it!

      October 19, 2013

  • Nuala

    Thanks Diana... still wasn't sure myself! I don't usually cook Asian food. .. so will definitely be pot luck from me! Jessica sorry you can't make it.

    October 17, 2013

  • Erica D.

    Thanks for that Diana.

    October 17, 2013

    To be sure, Erica, Turkey straddles both in Europe and Asia Minor. In terms of cuisine, however, the label "Asian" is applied to East Asian (Japan, China, Korea), Southeast Asian (Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam, Indonesia, Malaysia) and South Asian (India, Pakistan, Burma).

    October 17, 2013

  • Erica D.

    Get a load of this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_sovereign_states_and_dependent_territories_in_Asia

    That stretches from Turkey to Japan. Could be a very interesting night! Would it be an idea to narrow it down? Or just go for it?? Feed back appreciated. I could do Korean cabbage salad or Japanese Hijiki seaweed salad if we're going "far" (where there be monsters) east.

    October 16, 2013

  • Erica D.

    Confessions of An Irish Pot Lucker!! Well that's great - I can have my Persian night then. Asia is so vast though - confounded as to what to prepare. Does it cover India, Japan, Vietnam? I need direction!

    October 16, 2013

  • Anna

    hi everyone - I'm new to all of this but love potlucking and looking forward to meeting you. If the theme is Asian food I could bring Thai green curry chicken....

    September 24, 2013

    • Nuala

      Look forward to meeting you Anna... I better get my cookery books out!

      September 25, 2013

    • Diana

      Just want to point out that Persian food is considered Middle Eastern cuisine, not Asian. So don't despair, Erica!

      October 16, 2013

  • Erica D.

    Isn't that weird - I was just thinking I'd love a Persian night chez moi - I'll have to come up with something else. Thanks for a great night lastnight - thanks Adrienne! I can do a meat entrée dish (that takes more than 15 minutes)?
