One of my most anxiously-awaitited evenings on an ongoing basis, is our Culinary Travel dinner party.  Cass, Darlene, Monica, Brian and I get together periodically and choose a cultural theme for dinner.  Our collective love for travel and food would have us globe-trotting non-stop.  Unfortunately, the pesky day-to-day concerns like employment and financial reality keep us from being our true selves, but somehow we manage .

There will ultimately be recipes posted, but in the meantime while I gather them, here is the menu:

Aperitivo
Cara Cara Triple Sec (which Darlene made), Vodka, Meyer Lemon juice and soda

Antipasto
Garlic Fava Bean Crostini
Prosciutto Wrapped Cantaloupe

Homemade Papardelle with Sugo
