Our Culinarian members include foodies to advanced cooks to chefs. We are a group of mature individuals who enjoy all things food. We rotate hosts for each event giving each member an opportunity to share their culinary skills, knowledge and interests.  Some of us like to stretch out of our comfort zone. Of course recipes are shared!!!

The possibilities for the host are endless and limited only by the imagination of the individual.  Themes, chefs table, food truck, restaurant, winery tour, chili cook offs, the options are many and varied. The host will decide if invited members will bring a dish, side, monetary contribution, wine , dessert... the list goes on.  The host will also decide on using a couple members as sous chefs, having everyone participate, or plan and prepare the entire meal themselves.

We are planning on keeping the group relatively small, so if you'd like to join you may be on a waiting list.

Our member requirements are:

•  Have a love for Food, and are willing to expand their culinary horizons, are willing to host an event of    their choice.  

• Members who haven't attended an event within 6 months will be dropped to make room for others who have time to participate. If you need to drop out because of other obligations, feel free to rejoin in the future. If there are extenuating circumstances, please contact the Ombudsman. 

• A no-show member will be an immediate drop from the group.  We feel as a group that it is utterly disrespectful  not to  notify the host that you won't be making the event you've RSVP 'd to. 

• Their will be dues of $10.00 a year payable at your first event to Brian Ball.  Non payment of dues will result in you being dropped from the group. 

• We will have one meetup the 2nd Saturday of every month, and a restaurant once a quarter.  Additional meetups are welcomed throughout the rest of the month.  The additional meetups need not be overly formal and can range from a themed event at ones home to food truck etc. 

The groups leadership is comprised of a council of three:

Micheal: Restaurant coordinator;  contact Micheal once an event is on the calendar and he will interface with the proprietor and work out details of the event.  He will also be on the look out for places and things for our monthly meetups. 

Tammy Ball: Keeping the schedule current, Ombudsman point of contact for any suggestions to improve the group also the point of contact for complaints and conflict resolution. Or just someone to bounce ideas off of. 

Brian Ball: Treasurer, All dues will be handled and given to James.  Membership administrator
