This session, we welcome all participants to join us in having some fun at this potluck dinner, full of wonderful culinary delights, both savory and sweet, and maybe learn a trick or two in the kitchen! It’s a wonderful time to try out new recipes, with the local farmers markets bursting with tasty and beautiful fruits and vegetables. We have selected cookbooks with fresh ideas that take advantage of seasonal bounty. And find out what signature cocktail recipe has been created for us this summer!
