I used to be involved with a ski club and we have a group that liked to try new restaurants. These same people also loved to cook. I suggested we have a pot luck gathering, but not your run-of-the-mill pot luck. I called it the Guinee Pig Pot Luck, because you had to bring something you never prepared before. Everyone was truly a guinee pig. It was a very successful event; one we repeated frequently.
I call it the Bavarian Torte. It is a cheescake based dessert, with pears. Yum!
Italian (my mother was once a cook in an Italian restaurant and I remember her making homemade ravioli when I was a child).
I love to cook, especially desserts. I live in Redondo Beach and enjoy meeting people and making new friends.
As always, Jacqueline and Chris were perfect hosts. Had a great time. For those of you wanting the recipe for the dessert I made, go to More, then Files and look for Bavarian Torte. Enjoy
