Dinner with the Lavenders

St. Margaret’s Global Cuisine Potluck on Saturday, April 11, promises more than great food. Leslie and Michael Lavender are bringing pictures, travelogue and tails of their last visit and the wines they carefully carried home.  Don’t miss it.

Any dish is welcome at the potluck, but why not try one of the all-time favorites like Beef Bourguignon or Coq au Vin, or  maybe a cheese and leek quiche or a tarte tatin?  For four great-sounding recipes from Alain Ducasse — double-baked Cheese Soufflé with Parmesan Cream, curried cod and Mussels, Braised Root Vegetables and Cabbage with Fall Fruit, and  Hazelnut, Nutella and Caramel Ice Cream Sandwiches — go here http://www.foodandwine.com/articles/alain-ducasse-a-lesson-in-modern-french-cooking.

Dinner will be at 6. Bring a few friends.
