A group for avid Santa Cruz Mountain area home cooks who enjoy sharing good food. Nothing too fancy or complicated. Great cooks to beginners -- let's learn from each other.

We're just getting started so there's no set schedule yet. I'm thinking we'll start out in public venues, like picnic potlucks in parks, and also meet up in area restaurants or wineries to get to know each other and plan future events. Small group events at member's homes would be by invitation.

Other thoughts: group cooking classes at kitchenware shops in Santa Cruz or Los Gatos, farmer's market meetups, food festivals, wine events. We don't always have to cook!
