Meal Meeting Oct 19

What’s a Meal Meeting?


Keith was Toastmaster

We have a special Agenda with a few standard items

  • Toastmaster – Keith
  • Inspiration – Dean
  • Highlights – Glenis
  • Timing – Jenny
  • Close – President Ilija
  • Supper

The bulk of the meeting is made up 3 minute speeches in which the speaker explains the meal they bought along to share with everybody.  These speeches are divided into 3 sections

  • Hot meals
  • Cold meals
  • Desserts

There was a break for eating after the Hot and Cold meals and the Desserts were celebrated in Supper.

See some pix of the meal speeches on this Rotator (it will go on repeating)

    Loved the evening, loved the stories, loved the food, I didn’t realise before how multicultural we are! It was like a whirlwind trip around the world in 16 dishes.

    Amazing night of food delight.
    Enjoyed everyone’s efforts to enchant a magical night of food, companionship and story. Highlights for me was the fluent motion and energy of Keith as Toastmaster and the reveling of a family secret in creating the greatest fudge drop from Gail. My tongue will never forget that experience. Thank you to all members who participated.
