Cooking Enthusiasts Vegan Dinner Party?

  • Needs a date

  • Needs a location

  • My husband and I are new to Chicago and are looking for some people to share our love of vegan cuisine/food science and are want to meet up for beyond the basics fun. We have both previously been professional chefs but are now pursuing other careers. We love to push boundaries and experiment!

    Some of our recent obsessions:
    perfect vegan french macaron (me)
    fermentation of just about everything (husband)
    cookie and beer pairings (me)
    molecular gastronomy

    If people are interested maybe we could set up monthly (possibly bi-weekly) meet-up, could have a common theme or ingredient, or could be bringing our own interests into the mix for others to try (open to suggestions of course)

    Hope to hear from some fellow food nerds :)

    I'm a long time vegan. I don't have any vegan friends yet so it would be nice to come.

    I love this idea! Especially the cookie/beer pairings. Lord knows I'm a big fan of both and would love to explore this!

    And welcome to Chicago! My place is always open. We're very hospitable and inquisitive here in the Midwest. Or maybe that's just me.

    Anyone? Let's get this big ol' vegan ball rollin'!
