First Annual Peanut Cookoff

You are invited to a special SEAPAX potluck event on November 13th beginning at 5:30 PM.   We will gather together to celebrate the variety of delicious peanut-based cuisines enjoyed in our many Peace Corps host countries around the world.

The event was conceived as Arlene Mitchell (RPCV Niger) and Mark Hower (RPCV Sierra Leone) began a light-hearted palaver about the merits of their traditional groundnut stew (peanut sauce) recipes derived from their respective West African Peace Corps assignments.  Thus, Arlene and Mark intend to display their culinary skills, and you are invited to enjoy their offerings, contribute your own peanut-based dish, or both!  Or, simply bring a friend and a side dish and come prepared to have a wonderful, filling evening with RPCV friends.

We have been generously invited to use the expansive Interfaith Community Sanctuary of Imam Jamal Rahman, our thoughtful and inspirational speaker at the June Ramadan Break Fast (Iftar) event.  In addition to his work in the Ballard Interfaith Sanctuary, Jamal is famous for his work as a member of the Three Interfaith Amigos.

Here are the logistical details:
Date: November 13th
Time: starts at 5:30 PM
Location: Interfaith Community Sanctuary (Ballard)
1763 NW 62nd Street

Bring your dish ready to eat; please label with ingredients.  There will be rice ready and if a peanut dish is not your forte, salads, fruit and desserts are welcome. We will have kitchen facilities to warm up dishes and/or to refrigerate them.

If you have questions, please contact Mark Hower or call his cell phone at 206-707-4945.
