THIS IS AN EXCLUSIVE INVITE ONLY PRIVATE GROUP! Flakers are not tolerated here. We only accept 300 members so be sure to stay ACTIVE!

Over 500 Meetup Dinners later...Foodgasm turned 3 and is still going strong!
Undoubtedly the most active Meetup on the site, with amicable gourmands to boot.

Like to Cook? Like Dining Out? Look no further. We have it all here.

Welcome! This meetup is for ACTIVE MEMBERS who love gourmet food/wine/desserts, want to know the BEST that NYC has to offer, like dining out, and are not afraid to pay for a good meal. We are probably the MOST ACTIVE MEETUP on the entire website! Never a dull moment here! Will keep the gatherings as small as possible (usually 8 max) so people actually get to know one another.

Here you can also meet up locally with other people who like to cook. Trade recipes, tips, ideas, cookbooks, and discuss all the magic in the kitchen! I believe that in order to learn and to enjoy cooking, you need to make everything yourself, so get ready to roll up your sleeves! No premade food, no KFC! We really cook here too!

Our group has a big heart and there will be many opportunities to help the less fortunate, whether it be in areas of job readinesss, ESL, soup kitchens, painting, you name it.

$5 Charity Fee is collected have been going towards New York Cares, unless specified otherwise. If you have a worthy cause for a non-profit, let us know and we will look into it!

By giving back to our members as well, now you can even be part of a Charity Tasting Drawing and win tickets to a $150 Tasting Event Benefit!!!
