April 2007 Cold food & Chardonnay

April being the hottest month in Pune, members felt the need to beat the heat of the kitchen and indulge in chilled wines and light nibbles. The theme of the meet was cold food with chilled Chardonnay and sparkling wine. Since the menu included many type of cheese and breads, much of it was store bought. The spreads and some dishes like the cold gazpacho soup were home made. A live station was set up for hot bruschettas.

The moonlit dinner held in a garden was attended by 30 members and guests.
