On October 7th, we hosted our monthly Italian cooking workshop with Tom Marcantonio. The kitchen was bustling with 12 in attendance and Sarah and Susan as the highly capable sous-chefs. Tom had people chopping, assembling and sampling a variety of fresh vegetables, fruit, meat and cheese. The menu featured a mushroom bruschetta, Italian wedding soup with meatballs, a mixed green salad, penne with chicken, olives and tomato sauce, and fresh cantaloupe for dessert. When everyone sat down to eat what they`d help prepare, the room suddenly went quiet—a sure sign that people were enjoying their meals!
Thanks to all of the volunteers who helped out, our neighbours who cooked and shared a wonderful meal, Tom who shared his culinary knowledge (and parsley from his garden), and John who did all of the washing up!
