Pot Luck Party

I honestly think the best way to spend a weekend is to cook for a group of like-minded individuals who are as crazy about food and wine as i am.

In fact, we only just started on such get-togethers last year with my partner in crime whom i will refer to as Ko-Ko. First time it all started was when Ko-ko got married and moved into a wonderful rented apartment facing the sea. Next to host was DeeTour chick who has a room full of wine (literally!) at her place, thanks to her lovely dad! Then this National Day, it was held at Ko-Ko's again. We had so much fun sweating in the kitchen that we have decided to do such get-togethers about once a week or once a fortnight to share each other's culinary experience, recipes and secrets.

I know i had an awesome time just spending the day preparing and then the rest of the afternoon, indulging in everyone's superb dishes, sipping to wonderful reds and chatting just about everything!
