Gourmet Cooking

For those men who like to cook, this group meets twice a year to prepare a 4-6 course meal with wine pairing included. Each member of the group is required to prepare his selected dish to comply with the dinner theme, such as French, German, Italian, etc.

Members of the group volunteer their homes for 6-8 members with the host responsible for the main entrée. A small fee is collected for the wine selections. The cost of each course is the responsibility of that cook.


The club chairman is Jim McKeown 327-3411.
