On Saturday the Ocracoke Youth Center sponsored a gourmet progressive dinner for two groups of twelve people. Superb island chefs prepared the fare. The third course, an outstanding mixed salad accompanied by an oriental rice paper wrap, was served at my house. Claire Senseney and Matt Luks fixed the salad, and I was the host.
The salad was simply delicious, and what a fun group of people! Everyone was in a jovial mood (unlimited glasses of fine wine didn't hurt!), and, of course, we knew all of the diners. A wonderful time was had by all. Unfortunately Claire, Matt, and I were unable to enjoy the other courses, but by all accounts everything was outstanding. Both groups of twelve completed the evening with a choice of tasty desserts at the old Soundfront Inn. Local musicians provided music.
Yet another reason to be happy to call Ocracoke home.
