Every 3rd Thursday… existence is scrumptious

Grab a plate. Pull up a chair. strong corporation. nice meals. No principles. It’s potluck.

When Nancy Vienneau began an off-the-cuff potluck celebrating stable foodstuff and goodwill, she had no suggestion it'd be going robust 5 years later. The ever-changing staff of various those that attend have something in universal: a commitment to strong nutrients. consequently, each month, a non-scripted parade of seasonally encouraged dishes appears—dishes that draw on materials from the contributors’ personal gardens, their friends yards, or the farmers’ marketplace. those dishes have fun their provenance and their heritage. Roasted tomato goat cheese tart with Tennessee Bradley tomatoes, Me-me’s chocolate cake inherited from a cherished grandmother’s recipe. fowl baked with clean plums from a neighbor’s tree. Acorn squash packed with Southern sorghum and pecans. Pimiento cheese made with neighborhood farmstead cheddar. Crowder pea salad flecked with Benton’s state ham.

Like a sourdough starter made of flour, yeast, and water, this easy get-together has grown right into a energetic, wealthy occasion jam-packed with attention-grabbing fogeys and nutrition. among those covers you’ll locate excellent dishes, heartfelt tales, plus assistance and ideas for beginning your personal group potluck. Did anyone say it’s Thursday?
