$3.00 Menu
In 1953 the Flamingo Hotel Diner served, French Fried Chicken Pancakes with Creamed Mushrooms, Sweet Potatoes, and fresh Broccoli for $3.00. A McDonalds burger, fries and shake were 49 cents. Definitely a different era. (Adam will have his grills going.) What will you create for your 1950’s Diner dish? Think about beefy hamburgers, chicken fried steak, milk shakes, grilled kababs, chicken salad, vichyssoise, or chicken cacciatore. Also, a big fat diner pie comes to mind. So, either page through your cookbooks or cruse the web and find a yummy recipe to cook. Remember there are no rules. Bring what you'd like to drink plus a little to share. Every month we choose a new crazy theme! Lots of fun and lots of food and drink. RSVPs open 30 days prior to the event. The address of the host will be posted on the event page 2 weeks prior to the event. Plan to cook on site, unless your recipe takes 45 minutes or more to cook. It often helps if you do as much prep as possible before hand. Because the oven opens and closes often, baked goods (excepting cookies) are best done ahead of time. Remember this isn’t just a potluck; this is about sharing the pleasure of cooking and food and learning from one another while drinking wine 'n stuff and having great conversations.

What we're about

Public Group

The Greater Hartford Fabulous Foodies is a diverse group of fun people (21+) who love to cook, eat, share, and enjoy great company.

On the second Friday of each month (with occasional exceptions) we gather to create amazing dishes based on a crazy theme. Each person attending will plan their own dish and bring the ingredients for their dish (to serve 6 to 8). This is not a pot-luck event, we encourage people to cook on site.

All levels of cooks are welcome, it is the perfect opportunity for those who love to cook, to learn and to share.

RSVP's open 30 days before the next event.
