Christina House / Los Angeles Times
One Saturday night in May 1964, a group of friends from UCLA and their wives gathered for a dinner that whimsically celebrated the French Revolution. There were crepes, fromages, French wines and true Champagne. It was so much fun they decided to do it again the following month. And the month after that. Next month, they'll celebrate 45 years together. Here, Mary Lou Samuelson, right, greets fellow Food Club member Jim Anderson upon arriving for dinner at the home of Paul and Nancy Iffrig in San Gabriel last month.
