Tasteful Supper Club Fundraiser. Sept 16, 2010

salad course

Two of our members who regularly host the Tasteful Supper Club organized a special fundraiser for the Greenpoint Soup Kitchen back in September, hosting a delicious and fun evening and raising some $$ for neighborhood food security! 

gracias for the wine donation!

Everyone left with full bellies, new friends and a drunken glow (courtesy of fabulous wine donated by Vine Wine).

The 5 course menu was:

-1-
Beet Pesto & Spicy Eggplant Dip with Pita Chips
Pimientos de Padron blistered in olive oil & topped with sea salt
-2-
Peach Honey Ricotta Bruschetta
-3-
Salad of thinly sliced radishes & fresh picked raspberries on a bed of romaine lettuce with a light vinaigrette
-4-
Roasted Acorn Squash & Cannellini Beans wrapped in a corn tortilla and topped with tomatillo-jalepeno sauce
Wilted Spinach with lemon zest
-5-
Apple Crisp topped with Brooklyn Ice Cream Factory Vanilla Ice Cream

Meringue Cookies

 

The dinner ended up being held on the night of that fateful Brooklyn tornado (everyone arrived safely!).  By the end of the night we had concocted a new cocktail and we all toasted to the tornado.
