The first time that I was introduced to Project Flavor I was pissed off. It was Festifall ‘09 on the Diag, and every club that exists (more or less) had a booth. Everyone basically tries to sell themselves (for club members, not money) using t-shirts, bags, candy and the like. Usually clubs get hundreds of interested people that day, and if they’re lucky, they get a few winners. I was initially drawn to Project Flavor because they had baked goods. From far away, it looked like some banana bread or maybe a cinnamon sweet bread. Unfortunately for me, by the time I got there, the bread was gone. Now while most people would move on to the next booth of free shit, I got hooked.
We cook gourmet meals at the Ronald McDonald house (where families stay when they have kids in the hospital) about every other Friday. As much as possible, everything is from scratch. Our budget is $100 per cookdate, and we need to feed 40 people. The menu is different each week, and we plan what we want to make a few days before that (to leave time for grocery shopping). Contact us at: email@example.com.
You can never have too many onions?
This past Friday I convinced the leadership board to do a vegetarian (and mostly vegan) cookdate! The theme was Italian and we made gnocchi with a tomato (soy)cream sauce, stuffed onion and parsley bread, white bean soup, spinach lasagna (not vegan), and tiramisu cupcakes (not vegan).
We ended up having some issues with the potato gnocchi holding together, so we had to add some egg to bind them. I am going to try to fix that recipe that we found to make it legit vegan.
Slightly un-related, I was really craving sweet potato fries on Friday. The late night snack hit the spot.
