A group of 50 Rotarian foodies gathered along with their friends and significant others on a perfect summer evening at Nakoma Country Club for a Low Country Shrimp Boil organized by Rotarian Phil Levy on Tuesday, August 5.

Following an hour of conversation, drinks and hors d’oeuvres, we enjoyed a cooking demo by Chef Gabor (above) within view of the fire pits on Nakoma’s new back patio. Chef Gabor explained the difference between the Cajun preparation which he was demonstrating and the New England preparation as he added herbs and spices, andouille, potatoes and shrimp to the pot. Following the cooking demo, we feasted on the shrimp and vegetables. The evening concluded with hot fudge sundaes and coffee.
