WOULD you like to come to a dinner party with Prince Charles, Oprah Winfrey, Barack Obama, Kevin Rudd and Barbara Streisand?   Starting tomorrow you can at the Bunker Cartoon Gallery where you can meet them all.    "The Bunker Gallery has a food theme this month and we're presenting an extra-large helping of cartoons and caricatures for you to savour at an exhibition called 'The Dinner Party'," Gallery director/curator Dr Leigh Summers said.   "Gastronomes and art lovers alike will enjoy a menu of the freshest of humour, marinaded in satire and served up with great dollops of laughter.   "Plus we're joining forces with our local food heroes - the 'Meals on Wheels' volunteers - to provide home-delivered humour by giving them copies of cartoons from our collection to give to each of their clients the next time they deliver a meal.     "We're also inviting them along on the official opening night on Friday, June 21, to enjoy the show and have the chance to tell people a little about the services they provide. The opening night is open to all and starts at 6pm."    As comedy and food appeal to all ages, the Bunker is also running a special school holiday 'Bunker's-No-Bake-Off'.     The Gallery is asking for all the mini masterchefs on the Coffs Coast to send their best no-bake slice or dessert recipe to the Gallery via email by Wednesday for a chance to win mystery prizes.   "Selected finalists will then be invited to join us on Wednesday, July 3, at 10.30 am to personally demonstrate their no-bake recipes and present their finished dishes to our judges and audience," Dr Summers said. We'll provide all the ingredients and a morning tea - and everyone is welcome to come along."
