11 ladies gathered at the home of Viki Brown for the first Culinary Arts gathering of 2022. Linda Haynsworth-Krueger served as co-host and we sampled a wide variety of dishes from the Middle East and Africa. The featured cookbook was "The Table Without Borders: Recipes from Refugee and Immigrant Chefs". We learned about a variety of exotic spices and seasonings and enjoyed the meal which was gluten-free and mostly vegetarian. Lots of fun social time was included too.
