The Cook-Off Club is a group for those of us to who love to cook and sample other's cooking, and don't mind a little friendly competition. The concept is to host a variety of themed cook-offs that give us a chance to expand our skills and showcase some favorite recipes! You don't need to know how to cook a dish prior to signing up for a cook-off. In fact, every cook-off is a chance to come up with exciting variations on a classic dish! You don't have to participate in the competition to attend a meetup (judges are always needed), but obviously its a lot more fun if you join in with your dish. Dishes will be ranked on flavor, originality and presentation, with awards (bragging rights) going to best in category and best overall dish.
In addition, there will be ad-hoc meetups related to everything epicurian, from knife-skills workshops to wine tasting to learning how to grow our own herbs or how cheese is made. I want this to be a group for us foodies to learn and expand our craft.
Note from New Organizer: The "Cook-off" portion of this club is tentative as the club starts back up from being nearly closed. As more members become active again, we can decide on how to proceed with the competition piece, but for now, all events will be potlucks and enjoy without the scare of competition.
