It seems we’re all so busy all the time and we always say we’re going to get together, but time goes by and it’s been months since we have.

So, a group of us got together and decided to have a Tasting the World party. We meet the second Saturday of each month, with each of us taking turns as host/hostess. We choose the country we want to feature and the host makes the main course, and the rest us choose from an appetizer, side, and dessert.

We each pair a wine with the dish we’re making and have fun sampling. We try to make something authentic from the region or country we choose so we force ourselves to step out of our comfort zone.

Sometimes we get a little crazy and even dress the part!

So use this as an excuse to get in some quality time with the friends you miss.
