Thank you for your interest in International Gourmet Dinner Club.
We are a group of non-professional chefs all with a desire to try something new. We try to meet up once a month to have theme dinners where group members who RSVP make something from that theme and bring it. The theme is determined by the Host house and it could be a country theme like Italian, African, Thai or get into the specifics such as Creole, Share the Harvest or blind ingredient cook off. The group members are extremely diverse which makes it really fun. Ages range from 20- 92.
Members are asked to join with a good attitude, desire to try cooking and eating new foods and making some new friends! It is $5 due upon joining this group and $5 due in January of every year. These fund are used to keep this site up and offering dinners. Please follow the Membership Dues link to pay online through Paypal.
Each member should be able and willing to host a dinner event. Don't worry, size doesn't matter. Some dinners have been smaller, like 5 people and some have been over 65 (which was held in a wine shop). The host chooses the theme, posts onto the website calendar what they want to host or you can email me too, opens their home or another designated spot like a community center or park for the event. Limits can be placed to how many people can attend. Once posted, it gets emailed out to all members of the group and members who RSVP with a "Yes" will let the group know by posting on the site what they are bringing at least one week in advance. Members are asked to bring a beverage to share as well to the dinner. The goal is to not impact the host financially we cooking for all the members attending
If you have other questions, please shoot me an email! I look forward to meeting you in person at an upcoming dinner!
