One cloudy day in May 2011, my friend and I met up for coffee at a cute little place next to the Heathman Hotel in downtown Portland. Over a steaming latte we discussed her recent study abroad trip to Italy and the plans we had for the summer. If you know either of us, you know that we love to cook and experiment with different cuisines. After talking about the delicious food she ate in Italy, she came up with the idea to have weekly dinner with our friends–a different theme each week and everyone brings their own dish. From this conversation, the Friday Night Dinner group was born. Through this blog, I will share with you all the different themed dinners we had each week and the recipes we came up with.
Enjoy the recipes! Start your own Friday (or any day!) Night Dinners and share your recipes with us!
