Food & Wine – November 2018

First World War remembered

At our November meeting we remembered the home front in  WW1. We learnt that rationing didn’t start until 1917 when the country had only enough food stocks to last for six weeks..  By WW2 Britain had learned this lesson.  Instant custard and soup came onto the scene. We tasted some interesting recipes from WW1, thankfully not all of them in use today.

Food & Wine – August 2018

Lunch at the Black Horse

Eighteen of our members met at the Black Horse in Thame on Wednesday, 22nd August, where they enjoyed a meal at lunch time.  The menu was varied with a choice of either two or three courses.  There was also an outing that day with another group which several of our members had booked for and which accounted for the low number of members at the lunch.

There will not be a meeting of the Food and Wine Group in September, but we will be back again in October where the subject will be “Mocktails”.

Food & Wine – February 2018

Lunch at Duke’s Wine Bar

For our February Meeting a group of twenty five members met at Duke’s Wine Bar where we enjoyed a social lunch together.  
The Wine Bar has an extensive menu ranging from Bar Snacks and Lighter Bites to Jacket Potatoes, Sharing Boards and Hot Dishes.  They also have a selection of Desserts.
This is the second time we have visited the Wine Bar and feel sure it will not be the last.
At the March meeting we will be discussing EGGS.  Not just for breakfast.  Maybe a few tasters will be available.
