13 wonderful home cooks gathered at the home of Carolyn Hein on Aug. 9 to share and sample a variety of dishes featuring fresh food products available in the Rogue Valley. Jan Griffin served as our gracious co-hostess. Brilliant red raspberries and strawberries topping a dark green spinach salad and an array of colorful vegetables in a panzanella salad, were just a few of the beautiful and scrumptious foods that were enjoyed by all. Pairing fresh cantaloupe with roast chicken in a finger sandwich was a surprising hit . Each cook shared the secrets of her dish including any modifications made to the original recipe. We finished the meal with balsamic-sauced bing cherries with sliced fresh peaches. A big thanks to Carolyn and Jan for all of their working in organizing and hosting.
