“ My comments regarding the actual meetup may have more to do with my expectations for that afternoon. I was hoping for more of a formal introduction, in the beginning, explaining the purpose of the meetup. This was my first meetup and I was hoping for a little more strucure to kick things off. Perhaps, the organizers in attendance could have introduced themselves, spoke a little on raw foodism, and maybe shared some facts about the group. The dishes that were prepared were very good. For those that were willing to share, it would have been nice if the preparers had brought along copies of the recipes for others. ”
