This is a group for all over 45's that love trying different cuisines from around the world. Small dinner groups of 8 people at each dinner. First in best dressed. Female, Males and couples all welcome.
At homes Ideal for people on a budget... as each person will bring a dish and own drinks. Can rotate between homes , open to suggestions, Or I don't mind having them at mine.
What food dish to bring: I do not mind if you cook or buy from shop pre done.. choose from either starters , Entree, main or dessert. Only stipulation is must be the cuisine that is on that evening eg: Indian ...=Indian food.
We will be sharing all dishes so please make sure you know what ingredients are in dish .. in the case of shop purchased they should have ingredients listed.... nuts and dairy are main offenders for some allergies. It is up to the individual to find out if there is an ingredient in the dish that they are allergic to.
If you would like to take some left over food home, please bring a container. I have some bain maries to keep hot foods hot so I will be transferring into them.
At a restaurant
Great to try different cuisines from around the world, Restaurant bookings will have a limit of 10 to 15 at the most... this way everyone can mingle still.
Please bring cash to restaurants, as many will not split bills.
Only costs of the group administration is $2 per outing. This costs helps towards the $260 fee that Meetup charges. Any left over funds ( if any) will be used for either wine or a Christmas function.
Only rules of the group are as follows: Have fun! and more fun!
Because we are going into peoples homes, I would prefer if everyone had a photo up ... however I understand for various reasons not always possible.. eg not tech savvy or shy... or public figure.
If you say you are coming and find you cannot make it, let the host know within a reasonable time frame, this way your dish can be covered. In the case of a restaurant booking, it helps the business. We all know sometimes things crop up last minute... however continuous cancelling at last minute which prevents others from coming will see removal from group... I hope everyone understands this. Try to be punctual for meetups, as it throws out dinner bookings etc. The group will wait 15 minutes prior to ordering only.
If you have a plus one feel free to add a plus one. Notify in comments their first name and their dish in the case of home dinner party.... in the case of restaurant outing just add a plus one.
