Valued Members,

After slowly finding our way May has been a great month to showcase what we want to achieve. Wednesdays is growing to a meet and greet where we have our card players back as well as other groups playing games. Shoppers have found that the Mt Druitt location and plentiful parking makes for a very convienient experience. We have added soup to the Wednesday lunch menu and coffee and cake is what brings most people to the table. Our Fridays have seen great dinners and more entertainment on stage with Herman on accordion, Nicolas on guitar and Warren as the King of Diamonds putting in a live show. We have Robert and partner put on a ballroom dance demonstration for our members just to give a tast of things to come. John our resident Barman put together our first Cocktail afternoon to great delight of all. - Allan J. Potter

Boerenkool, Hutspot & erwtensoep.

Making a well-balanced winter meal is a Dutch tradition often based on potato and vegetable mash with tasty Rookworst or slow cooked meat and gravy. It takes time to make there and in todays fast food world and limited time not everyone makes their own often enough. Just drop in on a Friday night and let us do the cooking.

If you after a particular dish please book.

Valued Members, We trust all enjoyed the Easter break. Hearing stories of members who spent their time visiting loved ones and made the most of the eased travel restrictions to support our hard hit tourist industry.

Friday nights have continued to be a hit with different music to compliment the delightful home cooked meals that our kitchen keeps on serving out. Our recent games night attracted a host of grandkids that got their introduction to sjoelen while other games were played on various tables. The Line-up of events keeps on getting bigger and better with Ballroom dancing coming to our floor. Join in with our Ballroom instructor or just for your viewing pleasure. Live music going the next step with Herman putting on some tunes and our first vocalist making it on stage at the end of the month. Our resident barman will show of more of his tricks by shaking the cocktail shaker and the kitchen has more menu plans for every occasion. Its time you come and check out your club. Bring the Family, bring your partner, and bring a friend. See you soon - Allan J. Potter

May the 28th is where we welcome our first vocalist on stage with Warren Potter, the King of Diamonds performing a Neil Diamond tribute show live in the club. If the name sounds familiar that’s because he has performed in a great many places but the younger brother of our president is looking to light up the stage @ the Rembrandt

The Board is working on the NSW government initiative ‘Dine and Discover’ to bring new opportunities to members and guests. We hope to bring a morning tea event to a Wednesday morning as well as a live music event on a Friday evening as part of this program. A monthly Mums n Bubs Wednesday gathering has been suggested and if you know of any mum’s with bub’s please contact Erika on 0411 176 329. Triominos is a funny word for an old table top game with a difference. Triangular dominos, we have a bunch of regulars playing on Wednesdays and there is always room for more players at the table. After a few trials we have mastered the video system and some new selections will be screened on a regular basis. While not feature films these are more seen as visual attractions to show heritage and country along with some music.

For those looking for a sweet Dutch treat we now have ‘Vlaai’.
It could be described as a fruit flan but that isn’t the right word.
With a flan base it does start in similar way. Traditional flans are custard based a Vlaai is all fruit topped with a pastry lattice giving its unique appearance. This is something you need to experience if you have a taste for fruity sweets. Available in Apricot or Cherry frozen from E.D.A.H.



Klaverjas

News Item


Learning a new game from the comfort of your chair or brushing up on the rules before jumping into a game could be the new thing to do. Klaverjas HD is the closest thing to playing at the Rembrandt Club according to Caroline. She encourages everyone young and old to give it a go. There is always room at the table to get a firsthand view of the action. Call David Stenstra for more information. 0423 567 434



Cheese 2021

News Item


The job of the cheesemaker is to control the spoiling of milk into cheese. The milk is traditionally from a cow, goat, sheep or buffalo, although worldwide cow's milk is most commonly used and, in theory, cheese could be made from the milk of any mammal. The cheesemaker's goal is a consistent product with specific characteristics and organoleptic requirements (appearance, aroma, taste, texture). The crafts and skills employed by the cheesemaker to make a Camembert will be similar to, but not quite the same as, those used to make Cheddar.
