Eat, cook, enjoy. This popular group has been enjoyed by many members since the 1980s. Gourmet is organized around how food is prepared and its enjoyment. Various cuisines are prepared by members on a rotating basis usually in small groups for the Group. Members commit to cook once a year. During the year, Gourmet plans field trips to a variety of restaurants or culinary venues such as the French Culinary Institute in NYC and the Culinary Institute in Hyde Park NY. Other activities have included a visit to a farm followed by lunch, a potluck party or a guest chef at the Clubhouse.
Gourmet is instrumental to the success of our YDF Bake Sale. They are totally in charge of getting the 'goods' from our members, to labeling, set up, and selling. All baked goods received must be homemade. If a member cannot bake, she is asked to make a monetary donation. Unless otherwise noted, Gourmet meets on the Third Tuesday of the month in the Banquet Room at 11:30 a.m. Check with the chair for the current activity fee.
