What we're about


L.A. Foodies is one of the largest Foodies Meetup Group!

While we are no longer the biggest, but I think we are the best!

http://foodie.meetup.com/ (http://foodie.meetup.com)

Meet People Interested in Dining Out, cooking, baking or drinking in L.A.! Enjoy & share culinary talents with our 7,800+ fellow foodies, gourmets, wine lovers, chefs and home cooks. Discover new restaurants, visit Food Festivals, grab some cheap eats, check out the latest foodie trucks, farmers markets, wine tastings & meet new friends.

Let's broaden our horizons and get together for some themed potluck dining parties. Anyone up for a Tapas party? Home made Dim Sum? Chili Cookoff? Potluck Picnic BBQ? Roll your own sushi rolls? Jazz Concert? Cheesemaking workshops? Cookbook Swaps?
