Restaurant Rovers Annual Report January 2015

Submitted by Matthew Potter

In 2014 the “Soul Foodies” resumed their trek across the Globe, dining out five times this past year.

In February twenty foodies traced the steps of Thomas the Apostle to India and dined at Kama Indian Bistro in LaGrange.

In March, nineteen souls traveled to Italy (aka La Dolce Vita in Lemont) and paid homage to Paul and Peter for their ministry in Rome. In April, over thirty-five church parishioners were invited guests as the church basement was the location for an original Ethiopian/Eritrean meal. There are photographs of the event. It was catered by Tsehai and her friend Winnie. George Poulos prepared photographs provided to him by Zakaria Ibrahim, who traveled to Ethiopia. John Segvich organized and ran the visual montage of photographs of the ancient and fascinating country.

The ministry/fellowship was on a sabbatical for a few months after this event but resumed in September for a southern style barbeque. Chucks Southern Café in Darien was the scene of nineteen hungry foodies, as we paid tribute to our Orthodox Brethren in the bayou. Deacon John Segvich was presented with a mason jar and a special hat. For that night he was transformed into a Southern Gentleman.

The year ended at an affordable yet upscale seafood restaurant, Devon Seafood and Steak, located in Oak Brook. Seventeen “fishermen and fisherwomen” drank wine and ate some nice seafood. We spoke some about the role of symbolism in the early church, such as Ichtus/fish.

January 15th is the date of the next Christian Culinary Excursion. We will travel to Klas Restaurant in Cicero for Bohemian food. This was a suggestion by a fellow soul foodies and it led me to create a new method of selecting restaurants. I plan to unveil and implement this idea for the remainder of the meals going forward.

The fellowship remains popular. Since June 2013, there have been eight dinners and sixty-five people have attended at least one dinner. The fellowship welcomes the regular faithful’s and new foodies alike. We have your passport waiting for you. Hope to see you at the table as we break bread together.
