Last month, I had the pleasure of attending the first event by the Forkville Super Club. Put together by our friends, Monte and Melanie Davis and held within their own home, it was a fun night of extravagant eating! Having it in their own home added a cozy vibe, plus we had the added benefit of watching Monte do his thing within his own kitchen and his element. Half of the fun was watching what he did next and how he prepared the food.
It took me a little longer than I would have liked to get this on the blog because as some of you know, I was out of commission for most of last month because I got sick and didn't listen to my body enough to rest when I needed to. I had no voice at this party, as in, none. Even though I couldn't really join in on conversations in the way I wanted to, I found myself surrounded by such a fun, eclectic and friendly crowd! We drank an assortment of beer and wine, some provided by Silver Ghost Cellars and we all sort of instantly became friends.
I found myself, even in my state, to be one of the last guests hanging around. Then, as we headed out, Monte surprised all the guests with a package of his homemade bacon!

Wondering what my favorite bit from the evening was? All of it was great, but my favorite was without a doubt the Foie Gras that we ended the night with. Granted, Foie Gras is something that you either love or hate. In this case, I absolutely loved it. You can see above, Monte posing proudly with the Foie Gras he made, and he had every right to be proud of it!
