DC2: The Dinner Club

February 26th, 2012

I have always heard of dinner clubs, pot luck”s and the such and it always appealed to me in many aspects. I really dig the idea of connecting with people over food, It has always been a central focus for me growing up. Food was always the focus for gatherings with friends and family. The clubs I researched range from simple things like friends gathering over good food,  all the way to exclusive, private clubs that serve “forbidden” ingredients and can not disclose the location of the meeting until hours before. Pretty insane! This thought has always been something I wanted to do, but never had the time to really put it together. So last month while out with some friends, the idea came up to have a dinner club, everyone in the group is a foodie and what better way to make sure we see each other at least once a month with all of us having insane schedules? so The Dinner Club came forth, I figured DC2- because  it is the initials for The Daily Chews and The Dinner Club, very fitting for the new theme for my blog; cook, eat, spread the chews.

We started off the first club dinner with the theme of PACIFIC RIM CUISINE. and I have to say, the food was so good I forgot to even take before photos of most of the dishes! Here is what we came up.
