With 40 years of cooking experience, I started this group for established cooks and wanna be cooks of all levels.

Together beginners can learn the basics and those of us who might be more advanced know there is always more to learn!

I plan on having small get togethers so that everyone will have a chance to participate in preparation, cooking and of course eating our creations in a fun, friendly atmosphere.

When you join this group you agree to the following disclaimer and release of liability to the Host, host venue and event participants.

Disclaimer Note - your participation in this group is voluntary.  You will be exposed to new foods, kitchen gadgets (many of which are sharp) hot surfaces, liquids and many other potential hazards!  I am not responsible for accidents that you would expect to happen in any kitchen environment such as but not limited to slip and falls, cuts, burns, scalds, etc. so if you are not willing to handle tools responsibly and work with others around possible hazards and assume this risk , please do not join this group.  Those who do not handle tools properly will be asked to participate as a spectator for the safety and fun of all.
