Global potlucks are back!
The summer break from St. Margaret’s monthly suppers is over. We are starting again on Saturday, Aug. 13th. Our first Global Cuisine Potluck will focus on foods popular in Cuba. Any dish is welcome, of course, but if you want to try something new you will find recipes and ideas on the Time and Talent Table in the Parish Hall starting this weekend.
To learn about 10 classic Cuban dishes, visit The Latin Kitchen website. The author of that site writes: “All you need is a sturdy pot and a group of friends to gather around the table.” Then she describes special holiday foods, salty, crispy roadside snacks like yuca fingers and malanga fritters, and an icy, sweet treat called “Cuba Libre Granita”. All the recipes are provided: Ropa vieja ( braised steak), Pernil Relleno de Moros y Cristianos ( pork roast seasoned with orange and garlic and stuffed with black beans and rice), Maduros ( fried sweet plantains), malanga fingers, yuca fingers with dipping sauce, Cubanos ( specialty sandwich), black bean soup, fried sauusage sliders and the Cuba Libre Granita ( a frozen rum, Coke and lime juice concoction).
Dinner is at 6. Remember to bring your own beverages and maybe a neighbor or two. Guests are always welcome. Non-cooks are welcome as well. You can contribute some ice cream or bread that you pick up on the way… or you can volunteer to help us clean up afterwards.
