AN AWESOME UPDATE: For the listening pleasure of all attending, we will have the great jazz music skills of Ziad Rabie and a portion of his Quartet.

ATTENTION-We are asking everyone to park on the street along the house and NOT in the driveway. Thanks so much!

Details: The Italian Cook-Off will take place at a private mansion in the South Charlotte area.  The event will take place from 4pm until 8pm.  We will be offering dishes from the following three categories.

1. BEST ANTIPASTO or SOUP or APPETIZER

2. BEST PASTA or ENTREE

3. BEST DESSERT

The best part is that by attending YOU ARE THE JUDGE and you can try EVERYTHING!!!  Yes, simply by eating the offerings of the cooks, you get to vote on your favorites.  Your only other duty is two bring 2 bottles of wine (this is mandatory).

COOKERS:

RULES FOR CONTESTANTS: Make enough food for as many people to taste as you can (remember, each person who tries your dish will be voting so the more you make, the more people get to try it and vote on it!). Ideally, make at least[masked] small sample portions.

    Assume there won't be room in oven for people to reheat dishes. If I'm bringing a hot dish, what would be the preferable time to bring it?

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
