Progressive Dinner

A progressive dinner is a dinner party in which each successive course is eaten at a different location. It is a fun evening and everyone does a small part to make the event a success. Participants sign up committing to either prepare food or host a course. If you sign up to prepare food, you’ll be provided with a recipe for a salad, main dish, or dessert. Everyone, no matter where they dine, will be eating the same food. If you sign up to host a course, you’ll be serving the dish someone else made! Participants either bring or pick up their food at church on the morning of the event.

The evening proceeds as follows:

     4:00 - 5:00 pm  Hors d’oeuvres
     5:30 - 6:30 pm  Salad
     7:00 - 8:00 pm  Main Course
     8:30 - 9:00 pm  Dessert

We meet at church for hors d’oeuvres and  receive our dining assignments. Assignments are chosen at random, so expect to see different faces at each course. While enjoying hors d’oeuvres, guests make sure they have picked up maps for their dining locations, which the hosts have provided. The salad course is generally15-20 people. Salad hosts usually serve bread and a light beverage of their choice. A smaller group of 8-10 people gather at the main course host’s home, where wine generally accompanies the meal. The evening concludes with dessert at only one location, bringing all of the participants together again.

Watch for the sign up table at church through February 18th. If you have questions, feel free to talk to Nicole Busarow.
