Hey gang!

I have posted the rest of the menu and added the recipes to the files section of this site.

To attend, please contact me via e-mail at [masked] or use the e-mail on this site to let me know which of these dishes you wish to prepare. Once You have done that I will add you to the RSVP list manually and place your name next to the dish you are to prepare (you cannot RSVP yourself). You can also call me at[masked] if you have detailed questions (please do not use the 'comments' feature to ask questions, as I may not see them right away, and it confuses others).


The number in parentheses after the dish name indicates how many people are needed to make that dish (about 10 servings).

The recipes are here:
http://www.meetup.com/nightlife-641/files/
Note that some of the files have more than one recipe because the cookbooks were printed that way. So be sure to look at the right recipe!
Please remember to prepare about 10-12 servings of your recipe. You may have to double or triple the recipe as written in the cookbook, because many as written are for only 4-6 servings.


Items in red and bold are still needed. When we have enough of that menu item, I will change the listing to to plain black.

Notes on wine:
Be sure to stop in at Gentiles to see a nice selection of wine from the regions of Lazio and Campania. They will be set aside just for us!


As usual, there will be an assortment of red and white wine in a box on the floor at Gentiles, located at King Avenue and North Star Road. Other shops may have some wines from these regions, but the selection is often poor.

From Lazio (the area around Rome) only white wine is commonly available. Frascati is the easiest to find; Orvieto is also common.


Campania's volcanic soils (from around Mount Vesuvius) have for hundreds of years provided excellent red and white wines.  The predominant red grape in the area is Aglianico and the best wine made from that grape is Taurasi (Riserva).

Information on Campania wine is available here:
