FoodSpark X at Emma's House

Potluck at my house as part of FoodSpark X! I attended one of these recently and they've asked everyone to host one so we can get more perspectives. You know as well as I do that I am no expert on the arts scene in STL, so proof that ANYONE is welcome. This is an open, laid-back discussion and dining adventure.
