Creamy Venezolana Zucchini Soup and  Cindy’s Cheesecake! can both be made one day in advance



Moroccan Carrots and the Italian Potato Pie can be made 2 days in advance stored and served warm or room temperature. To warm Italian Potato Pie, pre heat oven to 400 F (180 C). Place in oven for 20 minutes to heat and serve warm. The carrots can be served cold.



Drinks enhance the flavor of the food. For nonalcoholic beverages choose 100% Pomegranate Blueberry Juice which will add to the meal and excite the taste buds. For wine, consider serving Cabernet Sauvignon whose gentle  savor will compliment and not overpower the menu.

Bitter coffee, black tea or a Brut Spumante are all excellent choices to off set the sweet cheesecake.
