Have you been wondering what to do with those untouched, beautifully photographed cookbooks that you get for every birthday and holiday from friends who know you love food? The ones that spill out of your kitchen shelves?
Let's crack them open and see what we can make together!
Let's meet the first Sunday afternoon/evening every other month. We will choose a cookbook for each meeting and each make a recipe from the same book (on our own,) then get together to share a crowd-sourced feast, and make some new friends.
Meetups are in SF. And we will keep gatherings small at first as we figure out how to make this an awesome, sustainable group.
All members are asked to RSVP "Yes/No" by the 21st of each month for the upcoming months meetup to stay in the group. Even if you are not able to attend the next event, your RSVP indicates that you are interested in remaining on our list. You will be removed from the group list if you do not.
Please only RSVP for an event if you plan to attend. Members will be dropped if they do not attend events that they RSVP for.
For our second group meetup let's eat from Yotam Ottolenghi's acclaimed cookbook Ottolenghi: The Cookbook (co-written with Sami Tamimi!)
The authors draw inspiration for their recipes from their upbringing in Jerusalem as well as other Mediterranean culinary traditions...with a few detours through California as well.
Every one of Otellenghi's cooks books including his most recent book of dessert recipes have gone on to be best sellers. Let's see what all the fuss is about!
So please bring a prepared dish to share (for 6-8 people) that is based on one of the recipes in the book. We are going to keep this meet up relatively small so that we can all still fit around one table--so please grab a spot while you can.
Please sign up only if you are willing to roll with things. It's hard to get potentially fun groups off the ground with high maintenance people. (And let's face it, their company makes food taste bad!)
And please RSVP only if you plan on attending. Members who RSVP and are no shows will be dropped from the group.
(Exact location address info will be sent 3-4 days before the event to members who have rsvped.)
