Mark Your Calendar for the 2019 Guinea Pig Gourmet Party! Saturday May 11th, 5:30 pm at Steph’s NEW HOUSE in Lincoln at 2324 Rubicon Lane.
This well-attended annual party challenges all of us to get outside our recipe box and cook something from scratch THAT YOU’VE NEVER MADE BEFORE & bring it to the party, along with copies of the recipe to trade. We can either trade ‘em or burn ‘em but have yet to have a recipe that was such a disaster that we had a bonfire. Tall people are such great cooks!
Now listen, EVERY YEAR some folks whine (and you know who you are) about not being able to cook but can they come anyway. NO!!! Other folks “tweak” the recipes they found and that’s a no-no too. We ALL routinely tweak recipes but this is about the challenge of FOLLOWING THE RECIPE TO THE LETTER.
RSVP on Meetup and let me know which category your dish fits best: appetizers, salads, mains, veggies, or desserts. Got questions and/or need directions? Call Steph 916-212-5114
Cost: Members $10 with dish, Non-members $12 Bring a main dish and get in for $5!!! 1st time Prospects: FREE Soft drinks will be provided. BYOB as usual.
All proceeds benefit the STC Scholarship Fund.
Guinea Pig Update: If you haven’t done this before, here’s the scoop:
1. Pick a recipe you’ve NEVER MADE BEFORE and FOLLOW THE RECIPE EXACTLY – No substitutions or “tweaking” allowed! This is the hard part.
3. Bring your creation and a couple copies of the recipe and we’ll either trade ’em or burn ’em. Disasters are welcome!
4. No dish = no come!!
5. PLEEEEZE pick a category beforehand and let us know so that we can get a variety of dishes. Categories are: Appetizers, Salads, Mains, Veggies, Desserts. Keep it simple or get wild & crazy with it – Your Choice. (BTW, rolls & butter are NOT a dish…. 😉
