"Bellissima Cibo" Another full house for Pontardawe Golf Club's Italian Evening.
Once again Jan, our stewardess, has amazed us with her culinary skills. Jan's authentic Italian cooking was second to none.
"Bellissima Cibo"- Beautiful Food.
The food theme evenings are now becoming a very popular event with members and there wasn't an empty seat in the restaurant.
We were treated to Salads, Potatoes, different types of Pasta dishes, Pizza's with various toppings, Garlic Bread, Spaghetti Bolognesei, Meatballs in authentic Italian sauces, all of which was cooked to perfection to suit everybody's tastes.
The charge of £8 per head each as much as you like seemed very popular with members and I was quite surprised at the volumes of food that was put away by certain members. Several of the officers and committee were seen repeatedly replenishing their plates, although they denied all knowledge of over indulging when questioned.

I think the quote made by Australian Comedian George Miller sums up the appetite of the night.
"The trouble with eating Italian food is that five or six days later you're hungry again"
All this good food was washed down by several pints of beer and glasses of wine in the wonderful warm, relaxing atmosphere of the club lounge.
A big thank you to the steward and stewardess, Mal and Jan, for a wonderful evening and most importantly a big thank you to all the members that supported the evening making it another night to remember at Pontardawe Golf Club.
I'll leave you a great quote about eating from a very famous Italian
"One of the very nicest things about life is the way we must regularly stop whatever it is we are doing and devote all our attention to eating"
