The Gorgeous Grub Group and Fabulous Foodies joined together once again for a Zoom Lunch. The theme this month being ‘Tagine’, we produced a fine selection of Tagine dishes, savoury, pungent, and with appropriate desserts such as Baklavas and Moroccan Oranges all of which looked great.
Unfortunately we were unable to sample each others’ dishes – the disadvantage of sharing a Zoom meal.
We are hoping to meet up face-to-face for an outdoor ‘Posh Picnic’ lunch on 22nd June.
The Gorgeous Grub Group
The Gorgeous Grub Group (GGG) was originally formed in 2008 with twelve u3a members who were keen cooks. Its purpose being to cater for the Summer & Christmas lunches of the u3a ‘morning group’.
Our menus and dishes were famed for being slightly unusual and providing delicious flavours. We also met regularly to share meals and also produced three mini cookbooks which proved to be very popular.
In 2019, we hung up our aprons and retired from providing food for the ‘masses’ but continued meeting every six weeks or so in members’ houses to eat meals based on a different theme each time; Asian, Pasta, African, Spanish, Vegetarian themes being typical examples of some of the delicious food we have produced.
More recently, we have been unable to continue with our usual lunches due to the Covid-19 pandemic. However, not to be daunted, we have been meeting for themed lunches via Zoom which has allowed us to expand our group and invite guests.
