Our first Club Social Event this year was a sumptuous dinner at Base Camp Indian Restaurant .
Dan and Belinda Hession hosted a convivial pre-dinner gathering at their home where sparkling drinks and tasty nibbles were served before our ascent to nearby Base Camp.
Thirty-two members and friends, including Lea – our exchange student, shared generously-proportioned serves of Indian and Nepalese cuisine. Entrees included:
- Chicken Tikka from the tandoor,
- Lamb Seekh Kebab.
Main course choices included:
- Butter Chicken,
- Tin Masale Ka Goshta (a diced lamb pie) and
- spicy Balti Beef
- Eggplant and Mixed Vegetables
Papadams, chutney, naan bread and rice accompanied the meal. Such was the abundance of fine food that we barely had room for a complementary desert, Gulab Jamin (milk dumplings and ice cream). Special mention and sincere thanks go to owner, Durga, who once again provided us with a delightful dinner at modest cost. No wonder we returned to Base Camp after being so well treated last year!
