This meetup is for men and women who like to cook or want to learn how to cook in a fun, social, relaxed environment. Cooking and eating together is a great way to make new friends. Both novice and experienced cooks are encouraged to join. Only requirement is that you like to eat and are willing to try new foods. We will get together at private homes and public places to cook and enjoy what we have created together. We can also eat at various restaurants and pretend we are food critics. Getting together for happy hours or coffee will also provide a forum for discussing recipes, cooking techniques, tips, culinary classes, cookbooks, TV cooking shows, internet sites.
