Penn Appétit's Picnic Potluck

In celebration of our finished Spring 2012 magazine (it's currently off to the printer!), the issue's feature story, and the gorgeous spring weather, Penn Appétit held a picnic potluck for all who contributed to the magazine and blog this year! A plethora of enticing entrées, sumptuous side dishes, decadent desserts, and delectable drinks awaited all who attended the event held inside the amply-spaced Penn's Women's Center.

A prosciutto-based appetizer, with the thin slices of dry-cured ham caressing bite-size pieces of melon and mozzarella, proved to be an excellent sweet-and-salty opening. There were sleek sesame noodles, perfectly "slurpy" and dressed with just the right amount of sesame oil. A fresh salad accented with grapes, mushrooms, and tomatoes refreshed the palate, while pitas packed with layers of hummus, tomato, and cucumber brought a Mediterranean touch. Finishing with chocolatey s'more rice krispy treats and peanut butter brownies made this picnic feast a true treat for the masses.

Other excellent dishes that attendees devoured:
• marinated trout
• bread and homemade jam
• mustardy potato salad
• guacamole and tortilla chips
• homemade muffins
• Au Bon Pain cookies and palmiers
• water crackers and cheese
• Bai beverages and two types of lemonade (cranberry and strawberry) to wash down all the bites

Stay tuned for information about the launch of our ninth magazine issue on Wednesday, April 18!
