Our vision for this club is simple - a group of folks with a passion for cooking light and creative dishes to create a cohesive meal to enjoy with some cocktails, wines and liquors/liqueurs.

And we stay true to that vision. 

If you are a cooking snob over 30 who has a passion for creative/gourmet cooking and also enjoys cocktails and wine (NO BEER), then this is the group for you.

Cooking Light is a magazine with the philosophy that food can be lower in fat and calories and still be tasty. You don't have to cook from the magazine, but you must follow the philosophy and cook food in a more healthy way.

Please be sure to read the detailed rules on the About this Meetup page. All members are expected to abide by the rules and will be removed if they do not.

We want to have a good time, but we also want to keep our cooking club true to our vision.  So we are uber strict about members understanding and adhering to the rules.  And have a very low tolerance for ignoring them.
