Our club’s Culinary Arts Fellowship group members and their guests gathered at The Madison Club Monday night, Oct. 23. After some initial socializing and enjoyment of hors d’oeuvres, they were treated to a cooking demonstration in the kitchen by Chef Stuebing.
He demonstrated how to prepare the Heritage slow roasted pork loin we’d be enjoying during the meal. In addition to the pork loin, members and guests enjoyed a wonderful pumpkin crab bisque (you don’t see this on the menu very often!) and a wonderful autumn pear tart with honey ice cream.
Everyone had a good time and shared good fellowship. A bonus was being able to share the evening with two guests–Rotarians from the Netherlands, a physician and an interior decorator, Harmen and Jolanthe Krepel, whose daughter is attending UW-Madison. They had lots of questions for us about our culture and politics and we learned a lot from them, including a bit of trivia about the tulip bulb crash of 1637!
