May 2009 Dinner

Monday, July 13th, 2009

The MSSF Culinary Group met May 4th for our last dinner until September. About 60 people greatly enjoyed a unique meal of upscale Mexican dishes in honor of Cinco de Mayo. We started with a delicious tequila tropical punch prepared by Sue Wingerson served with an array of appetizers that included mushroom preparations, several fresh guacamoles, vegetables, spreads, and many other goodies made by our diners. Then on to the main meal. Thanks and more thanks to the volunteer cooks for our main and sides–George Collier for the sopa de pan, Al Carvajal and Bill Hellums for the chicken mole poblano, Liana Hain for the avocado-rich green salad with kumquats, Lisa Bacon for the jalapeno chocolate truffles, George Willis for yucca cake and our ever faithful Remo Arancio for making the great coffee that helps get us home.
