The February 2016 meeting of the Culinary Conquistadors was held at Jo Ann’s and my casa yesterday and the group had a great time.
The menu consisted of the following:
Shrimp Spring Rolls by Brenda and Joel
Fresh Fruit and Brie Cheese by Jo Ann
Lemongrass Coconut Chicken Soup by Eileen
Layered Salad with Green Goddess Tofu Dressing by Rita
Chicken with Asian Mole by Jo Ann and Jon
Corinne Trang’s Sweet and Spicy Asian Mango Salsa with Grilled Shrimp by Jo Ann and Jon
Bacon-Cilantro Fried Rice by Deidre and Jason
Double Chocolate-Ginger Shortbread
Butter Shortbread Cookie Dough
Five Spice Shortbread
Jennifer’s Science Fair Coconut Shortbread
All of the above were prepared by Jennifer.
Of course we had lots of different wines as well as coffee latte or espresso afterward.
Here are a sampling of the various dishes prepared. Sorry but since I was having to take care of all the Asian Mango Salsa with Grilled Shrimp which came together at the last minute, I had no time or chance to do any food styling of these images. They are as they were served.
I hope you enjoyed the event and if you were not at this gathering but would like to join the group at one of our upcoming monthly meetings, please send me an email.
