International Gourmet Dinner Club Message Board › Ideas for upcoming dinner events
Hope you all had a lovely holiday! In in the spirit of getting the New Year off to good start I want to put out some ideas for some dinner events and get your feedback as well as get some dinners on the schedule.
Here are some ideas that might be fun:
- Chili Cook off
- Mac & Cheese Cook off
- Secret Ingredient Challenge - like our Chopped Challenge we did about a year ago.
- Vegetarian Dinner
- Vegan Dinner
- Filipino Dinner
- Indonesian Dinner
- Food of regions of Italy - such as Sardenia or Sicily
- South American - such as Ecuador or Peru
- BBQ - such as in the park this coming summer
Just a reminder, as members we are all asked to host. This does not mean you have to host at your own home. Here are a few ideas if you want to to host but are not sure you have the space: a local wine shop, a gallery, your office conference room, the meeting hall at your apartment complex, a friends house, your backyard or the local park. We have also had some smaller dinners too. Got space for only a few people? That's ok!
Lastly, the $5 annual dues to keep the group and site moving forward are due in January. The $5 goes towards keeping the site up (as it does cost), for organizing the dinners and maintenance of the site with photos, etc. Please visit the site and make your payment through PayPal or you can write a check directly to me at one of the events in January.
**Don't forget to take a moment to post your thoughts of dinner ideas as well! If you are wanting to host, please let me know what theme you want and when and I will get it on the calendar!
Have a wonderful New Years and I look forward to seeing you all in 2012!
