What sorts of events would you plan if you were to organize a meet-up event for our group?

I'm not sure what is possible yet, since I haven't yet attended any events, but I'm happy to set up things like cooking classes, potlucks, or restaurant trips.

What is the one dish or type of cooking you have not yet mastered, but would like to?

Persian cooking.

What is your signature dish that never fails you?

Athenian chicken or cheesecake.

What is your favorite type of cuisine?

So hard to choose - probably something spicy like Thai or Indian or Mexican.

For most of our events, individual and group photos are taken. Do you agree to let photos be taken of you and posted online?

Sure, as long as I don't have to look at pictures of myself, I'm fine with having them taken.


Hi. I'm a Long Beach native who has spent much of my adult life living away from the area and recently returned. I'm a university administrator/busine­ss professor, and in my spare time my passions are travel, cooking, reading and volunteering.
