And the next one’s mine to host. Hopefully since I have a decent stock of ingredients from my semi-recent trip to Lucky Market, I won’t have to buy too many ingredients! If anyone’s used this book and has suggestions for what to try (or avoid), let me know. Remember: We’re cooking AND drinking wine. Although, I’ve read the recipes are fairly simple.
