It all started with a photo on Facebook. My friend, Brook of Learn to Preserve posted a photo of a single steamed artichoke with tarragon lemon butter sauce - her contribution to the evening's book club. I was intrigued!
I have been to quite a few book club gatherings before - usually held at a local restaurant, where over drinks and food the book club members would discuss the book for 5 minutes and then move on to the latest and greatest life happenings. This book club, was going to be different! The guests, some of my friends from the Seattle's food community, were gathering for a French, Julia Child's inspired potluck at the home of Myra, Seattle Bon Vivant.

I will let the pictures speak for themselves, but this was by far one the most delicious potlucks I've attended in a long time. More exciting though, was our discussion about the art of writing letters, cooking for the ones you love, traveling, and loving food.

Sadly, I missed taking photos of lovely contributions from Nazila's Cherry Clafoutis, Jeanne's Gluten-Free Chocolate Cake and a few others that I must be forgetting due to the divine food comma.
I look forward to the next time we meet to discuss The Feast Nearby: How I lost my job, buried a marriage, and found my way by keeping chickens, foraging, preserving, bartering, and eating locally (all on $40 a week) by Robin Mather (that's one long title!)
