This is a group for Foodies of all kinds. For those who enjoy dining out, dining in, coffee, wine, recipes and foods of all kinds. For those who may not be familiar with the definition of a foodie, here are a few:
1. A person who has an ardent or refined interest in food; a gourmet. 2. (Cookery) a person having an enthusiastic interest in the preparation and consumption of good food. 3. A person devoted to refined sensuous enjoyment (especially good food and drink).
While I would expect to have some members who just enjoy dining out with others, the aforementioned “Foodie” is the ideal member and a true source for the ultimate purpose for our gatherings. Rather than dining out all the time, I envision getting to know people and having, or being invited to, hosted dinner parties. We can all save a bit of dining cash and have a lot of fun in the process.
As for me, I have gotten my inspiration to start this group from a number of different sources. Personally, I enjoy the foods of "The Mediterranean Diet", (www.mediterraneandiet.gr) and I like the principles of healthy eating outlined by the "Oldways Preservation Trust", (www.oldwayspt.org). I think it would be great to share these interests with other people as well as just meet for dinner once in a while.
Obviously I enjoy cooking. One of the things I bring to the table, so I have been told, is an awesome Chicago style deep dish pizza as well as delicious and healthy Greek food.
I look forward to your involvement.
