Food can connect us as nothing else can. It’s one of the few things we all need!

salad and cheese course. This is always a great palate cleanser. This year we enjoyed a frisée and greens salad with brie cheese. The meal was finished off with fruit tarts, ice cream, and watermelon. Of course, what would be a French meal without wine? We washed down each course with bottles of red wine and rosé. Every year, I am amazed at how wonderful the food tastes. I always try everything on the table. I have even surprised myself by liking foods I would not normally enjoy. Yet, the food isn’t the only thing that makes this picnic a favorite for Peter and me. This year’s event was a beautiful celebration. We were treated to a sunny, 71-degree day. The mountain air was crisp and clean, and we were seated among beautiful trees. It was a relaxing atmosphere as music played in the background and other attendees enjoyed volleyball games, raffles, and prizes. There was even a kids’ potato sack race! Our family also enjoyed meeting and talking with people from all sorts of backgrounds. There were artists, media representatives, and professionals from so many different fields. A great way to spend a fall Sunday: good friends, good environment, and good food. —Hema Gopal, DMD

We discovered the picnic years ago when my brother finally convinced me to join him. I never wanted to make the drive, but my brother was an avid supporter because he had a friend who was a French chef. When I finally relented, I saw what all the commotion was about. Needless to say, the food at this event is always amazing! This year’s meal began with a bean salad, a tomato salad, a charcuterie board, a seafood salad, paté, and crusty French bread with butter. Next, we gorged ourselves on the main course: roast beef with mushroom sauce, steamed vegetables tossed in butter and herbs, and small baked potatoes. But it didn’t stop there. Per French tradition, next up was the
