What we're about

Join us for a cookbook club where we get together monthly to make and share dishes from the same cookbook. The idea came from a similar group I was a part of in Boston, which was such a fun way to meet new people and try out a new cookbook. I haven't found a similar group here in Long Beach, so I'll be hosting this at my home. The main goal of this group is to build a community around the shared interest of cooking. I hope to see the same faces at each event!

How It Works

I'll select a few cook books to choose from, then send out a survey for the final vote. I'll also get a vote on the best times and days for the main event (note, I already scheduled the September event just to get it on the calendar view. But, if you're really interested and can't make that time, let me know).

Once the cookbook has been decided, you can email me which recipe(s) you want to sign up for. I'll make sure we don't have duplicates!

Then, we will get together at my house for a dinner party and bring the dishes we've made so that we can all try out each other's food.

You don't need to pay for anything aside from the cookbook and ingredients for your dish. I will provide plates, etc. and beverages (non-alcoholic).

There's no restrictions on who can come, though I will set a max capacity based on how many people I can host comfortably. If you're interested in hosting too, let me know.
