Mike Wolfberg's Middle Eastern Dinner

Mike was active in the Concord/Carlisle Newcomers Club Gourmet Group in the first half of the 1970s. In addition to his writing software to manage the organization, he created a couple of the menus for the group. He and his late wife, Julie, produced this menu for a Middle Eastern Dinner. The group held a few dinners each year which were meant to help new residents of the towns meet each other.

A dinner evening began at one or two cocktail parties at houses large to accommodate large attendance. It was a BYOB party, with food prepared by volunteers. Then couples moved onto host homes, where the attendees were responsible to follow the published recipes.

The Middle Easter dinner was held in the early 1970s as part of the dinners of the Gourmet Group. Here is the lineup of what was chosen for the cocktail party appetizers and the dinners.
