What in tarnation is a squash-luck? Well, think of a potluck, but specializing in squashes!! Strange, you say?? Well, there are thousands of top-secret squash recipes, passed down from generation to generation through folk-tales and folksong.
Whip up that squash dish that satiates the senses, sensitizes the sensations, and sensuates your salivation spots.
This is a potluck event. Attendees should make enough of a home-made, unique squash/gourd recipe so that all 18 attendees can have a sample size. Sample size only as we will be having up to 18 tastes!!
Please be creative and maybe even try a squash you have never cooked with before. There are many appetizer, dinner, and dessert recipes that use squashes.
Bringing a dish with a squash and/or gourd as a primary ingredient is a REQUIREMENT.
If you would like to bring anything else, that is completely optional but not expected.
We will provide home-made butternut squash cocktails and pumpkin martinis to accompany the fun. We will also provide all plates/napkins/utensils.
Our home is smoke and pet free.
