What we're about

“For is there any practice less selfish, any labor less alienated, any time less wasted than preparing something delicious and nourishing for the people you love.” -Michael Pollan, Cooked

From the professional to the home cook, from the local to the international resident, from the just-landed-in town to the long-dated Bostonian, embracing all Foodies willing to discover great food with the idea to socialize and meet new people, this group caters to those who love to make and share gourmet, home-cooked meals.

Though most meet-ups are centered on Refined Cook events (http://refinedcook.com/)--- cooking class parties (currently on pause during pandemic) and virtual classes (http://refinedcook.com/onlineclasses/) that teach healthy, gourmet cooking, members are highly encouraged to propose other events that center on food and wine.

I've also launched Cooking Subversive (https://cookingsubversive.substack.com/), a newsletter and podcast on lifestyle cooking to help those of you who are interested in making healthy and joyful cooking a lifestyle choice, even if you think you are too busy. I'm covering strategies on integrating cooking into a busy lifestyle, discussing cooking science, techniques, kitchen safety, curating data-driven information on food, farming and health-- stuff every cook should know.

I hope to meet and cook with you virtually or in-person (when the pandemic is over) very soon.

Peace,

Marlene
