Theme dinners the foodie/cook way

  • Needs a date

  • Needs a location

  • I'd love to be able to cook together a complementary menu planned around Different techniques worth learning or what we love to cook Then eat the fruits of our labor For example, I have a theme for friends not necessarily cooks this valentines day : bring food that connotes love, passion or sex to you I'm making a menu out of the list Ours can be seasonal incorporatingtechniques we wanna learn and/ or flavor profiles we wanna explore

    This sounds like a great idea. I'd love to be part of it.

    This is a great idea -- and I second the interest in gathering a smaller number of people (6 to 12) in different venues for group cooking.

    If getting "one place" isn't possible how about multiple satellite locations. For example, have one theme (e.g., Valentine's Day - love, sex, passion: food and discussion). Then people open their homes to a small group. We can post pics, post on Twitter/FB/Pintrest, etc. Just a thought.

    Iron Chef viewings = good future meetups? :) If you mean the "Mad Man Cosmopolitan of Clementine Juice, Rum, and Ginger Juice paired with Crispy and Creamy Brussels Sprouts w/ Mustard and a reduction of Apple Cider and Vinegar" ... well who could turn that down? His Parsnip Cardamom Bisque also sounds worth a try, if you ask me!

    Anyone seen the Finale of Iron Chef last night? I'd love to be able to replicate Chef "I'm-not-worthy" Zakarian's delish cocktail with the very different take on brussells sprout he served it with....need to break up my menu, I know, with something still wintery/earthy but lightfare

    This can go in many different directions depending on the mix of people (beginner to pros), alloted time ( a few hrs to half a day );
    Dc proper vs the burbs etc etc
    I work out of a semi-professional kitchen an hr from Dupont circle
    That kitchen can be for a large group next to a self sustaining organic farm with grass fed beef etc and very near a large fruit orchard.
    The mise en place, other prep work can be done if time is limited hard if folks wanna be at dc metro proper.

    I totally second this idea! However, I know my own kitchen is way too small for groups. Are we thinking active group cooking here, or more like themed potlucks with pre-assigned items + discussion?
