Meetup locally with other people who like to cook. Trade recipes, tips, ideas, cookbooks, and discuss all the magic in the kitchen! Each month a general theme decided by the group at the previous month's meeting. We use my place but it in summer we are mostly at Paul and Angela's home. Plan to do some or most of the cooking during the meetup.
sometimes we have special events and not just the monthly dinner. sometimes we have amazing field trips. Always we have fun and make great friends!
