Was lovely to have experienced the dinner parties over the years but sad to leave now due to the imminent arrival of little one - enjoy

Don't just disappear - there is life after baby arrives!

So the Gourmets met in October with rather an international flavour. Pre dinner was a Kir Royal and veg dips.

The first dish was a delicious and unusual combination of salmon and leek in individual tartlets, accompanied by an award-winning South Australian Chardonnay, McGuignan Reserve.

Then we moved on to lemon and Moroccan spiced free-range chicken with vegetables in a maga and couscous. The wine was Australian again, red this time with a Burra Brook Cabernet Sauvignon from the South East.

Finally a masterful (mistressful actually) concoction of white chocolate with cardamom and dark chocolate curls was set off wonderfully by what is claimed to be a Muscat made from the world's richest vines, a Campbells Rutherglen from Victoria, Australia.

Despite all the above deliciousness, we collectively achieved a laudable result in attempting to polish off all the cheese on the board!

wont disappear - it will be more difficult to commit that's all.

happy to be on reserve list though.

What do people think about 2014 dinner party plan? - should we mix it up a bit? Could someone else organise a rota other than lovely Jac? should we leave it a few months like normal? shall we change the format?... I know I'm not going to be involved as much but was being nosy...

I am happy to organise the rota if everyone is happy as I know that it is a lot of work for Jac.
