International Potluck Menu Save this date .
•A Global Potluck Asking friends to bring a dish from their cultural background is a great recipe for teaching about diversity. It's not that I have anything against covered casseroles and layered salads, but when I started pulling together a potluck for this event , I decided to get more ambitious with what could be on the menu. When I thought about the guest list for the potluck gathering, I realized that I had the opportunity both to broaden my members palate and to enjoy some new taste experiences myself. The group happens to be made up of a diverse collection of different culture's, each one connected to a yummy edible tradition. So I am asked the guests to supply dishes that may reflected their diversity, hoping that a wide-ranging buffet would be a way for all of us get a taste of one another's culture.BUT Too make this interesting you can if you do not cook you can find a restaurant that can make a dish for you but a good one .In Vegas we have so many different cultures .You don't have to be Chinese to bring Fried Rice or Italian to be bring a good Italian dish .We are many different cultures on this group make it super fun bring on the good stuff .Greek Indian Polish Jewish Asian Moroccan ,Russians Mexicans Italian s Philippians Hawaii Some ideas pancit, a traditional Filipino rice-noodle stir-fry Ethiopian chicken stew. On my end, I decided to start with my husband's side of the family because we both love the cuisine of Peru , I will make Pervain chicken and cilantro rice Pepe will make Paella chicken seafood dish Desserts yes are welcome . So here is the thing add in the comment section what you are bringing please look over the list before adding make sure we do not have a dozen pasta dishes coming etc. Everyone clear on this ?? I will have everyone pay $3.00 at door to cover other expense like water drinks ice paper products etc. Bring your own bottle favorite drink wine etc.

Cooking has been my lifelong passion. I studied under the "Masters" at the world-renowned French Culinary Institute and was Chef to New York's Rich & Famous for many many years. My web-page is one of the most popular "party-planning & holiday entertaining" sites on the internet.

Members Rules Please Read
Dear Members:
To protect your special Meetup membership, please respect Meetup cancellation deadlines with all our The Chefs Table activities activities and inform us at the very latest one day before events, should you change your mind not to attend. Thank you.I delete NO SHOWS no excuses .
the new "rules of participation":
If you RSVP for an event that requires that you bring a dish to share, and you do not cook, didn’t have time to make something, etc., the super markets sell pre-made platters of fruit, vegetables, cheese and meat, desserts, etc., at reasonable prices. Or, stop at KFC, or a pizza place on your way to the event and pick-up one of these as your contribution to share with everyone. Repeat offenders will be excluded from the group and removed from the e-mail list.
Water is always welcome; however, it is not an acceptable substitute for a "required" food contribution. The majority of our Members bring water or another beverage and food to share. And, if you bring a beverage that you do not wish to share with the group, please, please, put you name on the bottle(s), can(s), etc. If you do not, please don’t complain that others have consumed your beverage(s).
Participant fees MUST be paid at the time of arrival – even if you arrive late. Anyone who refuses to pay – even if you have brought a food and/or drink contribution, will be asked to leave. Once again, the majority of our Members play by the rules, but some do not and/or have made negative comments to the person collecting the money about this requirement. Repeat offenders will be excluded from the group and removed from the e-mail list.
Let’s all get "on-board" and play by the rules!
My sincere thanks for your favorable consideration and participation.
