What we're about

Do you love Food, Culture and meeting new People? Then this is your group!
I'm a chef & foodist, adventurous and enthusiastic culinary instructor, home canner, organic gardener, master naturalist, sausage maker, avid hunter/fisher & forager, tradition vs. "trendy", love meeting new friends and making memories. This group is for anyone. We all learn from each other. We all have something unique to offer and bring to the "table" to share with one another - no pretense, just casual, relaxed and fun!

"If you really want to make a friend, go to someone's house and eat... the people who give you their food give you their heart".
~Cesar Chavez

We breathe and sleep in order to eat and drink!!

*'Foodie - a person having an avid interest in the latest food fads, one who seeks out trendy new restaurants, wines, and foods only to check them off a laundry list of places to see and be seen.
