For months and months and months, Betty, Kerry and I wanted to organize an International night with all of our friends, both Italian and Ex-Pats, to share different dishes with one another. However, due to busy schedules we didn’t have time to sit down and organize the event.
So! I proposed that we have a mini-international night between the three of us! We set the date for July 16th and all of us met at Betty’s house at 6pm.
I came prepared with my homemade Chinese pork and chive dumplings for a starter. For dinner, I cleaned and cut a variety of fresh vegetables to make into a hot dish and then fresh fruit for dessert.
Kerry brought a couple bottles of wine, baci cookies for dessert and cous cous with mint, spinach, beans and black olives.
If you want to make Betty’s plantains, just get 2 plantains, butter and the latin cheese featured below. Layer it and bake it at 180C for 30 minutes (15mins without foil/15mins with foil so it doesn’t burn)… easy peasy lemon squeezy.
Needless to say, the girls did the cooking and the boys did the eating… had a great night but I’m still waiting for my dessert… Perry, where’s that NY Style Cheesecake??
