Add two more to the maybe / hopefully -- me and a fellow chocolate loving friend. When do you need a definite decision by?

Would be nice to know a week or so before.

Need a show of hands for Saturday dinner - Dave will cook for us again (with lots of help this time post stroke) - will cost around $50 - beef, maybe lamb, goose prociutto for apps... Niagara wines etc - and of course his fabulous wild mushroom soup.

I should probably be in the "maybe/hopefully" category with a little "not looking good right now" on the side... but I'm not giving up yet so don't bother changing it again just for that.

It's kinda like wrestling a gorilla... you don't stop when you're tired, you stop when the gorilla is tired.

I shall leave you where you are for now and hope for the best. If you do come we'll have all sorts of bottles of booze lined up waiting for you!

And a little correction on the cost of Saturday dinner - looks like in the past it worked out to about $35 each - not $50. So given inflation and all I'm sure we can keep it under $40 - even with the good wine. Apparently the college winery is making a wine out of dried grapes (raisins in my world) - that is excellent and goes for about $45 a bottle. I'll see if I can give it a taste and decide if we want to get any bottles.

Reposting this one from earlier in this thread -

One of the things I noticed this year that getting a smooth back on a mold is a problem for a lot of folks. I think in our "Back to Basics" section next year we should do a clinic on backing off molds. Not sure how this could be accomplished efficiently - because it's all about practice, practice, practice - but I think we should try.

Everyone should bring along the tools they like to use for scraping and we can tailor the technique to their tools.

Kerry, for the dinner list, I will be there but I need to talk to my two friends and double-check that they will be there for Saturday's dinner. Will post an update as soon as I know more.

Right - shall leave them there for now.

Same holds for me; I'm hoping.

Strange - I'm subscribed but not getting notices of postings on this thread. Ignore the PM I just sent you until you know better if you can make it.

I've lost track of Viktoria and Nonpariel - if anyone knows them personally - can you check with them?

I am still dreaming of Chef Dave's meal from 4 years ago. The mushroom soup was delicious!

Sorry I will be missing it again this time....but on the positive side I will be writing my final exams and will be done with school. Sign me up for the Niagara 2015!!!
