It will be Ilise’s and my turn to host the next supper club, coming up pretty soon, and since selecting the theme is Host’s Choice we’re pretty excited about this one.
Most times the hosts announce the theme to the rest of us in a low-key, understated way, usually via email within a couple weeks of our previous dinner.
Not us. Not this time.
We came to the Fondue Dinner in January with our theme all picked out AND an interactive group activity to bring it to life.
Yeeess, what a good idea to invite a group of wine-swilling, cheese-eating, fondue-dunking idjits (myself most definitely included) to play with knives at the end of a long, indulgent evening! Luckily everyone went home with the same intact body parts they had upon arrival, but in hindsight that little activity could so easily have gone horribly wrong.
Dan & Greg -- Drinks -- Batonnet and/or Mousse
Ellyn -- Appetizers -- Coulis and/or Flambeé
Ilise & Ann -- Main Course -- Julienne and/or Buerre Noisette

I can’t wait to see how everyone tackles this challenge! Stay tuned. A full report will be forthcoming before too long.
