Shocking to all of us was the discovery that over the years of Recipe Club, we never had a caramel theme. So, on Monday 7th September, Andrew hosted a caramel dinner, cooking the savoury dishes with Franca cooking the sweet dishes.

On Monday 3rd August, Pam hosted the recipe club, but it was Laura and Jacinta that were the cooks for the evening, with the theme being: carrot!

Laura begun the dinner with a surprising and refreshing orange, carrot and mint soup.
