What we're about

Ep·i·cu·re·an /ˌepəkyəˈrēən,ˌepəˈkyo͝orēən/

a person devoted to sensual enjoyment, especially that derived from fine food and drink.noun: epicurean; plural noun: epicureans

This meetup is intended to challenge your palate and senses on how you define food or “nourishment” and is open to all skill levels. We’ll be discussing and collaborating on cooking techniques such as, wet and dry methods of cooking, as well as, baking, preserving, growing your own food, conventional vs. organic, spices, dissecting domestic and international cuisine, cultures and how to shop on a shoestring here in Madison and beyond. There will be a number of guest speakers on a wide range of topics; from cheese and wine making, fermenting, how to make homemade pasta and more. We’ll be doing some urban exploring and discovering hidden gems for dining, going on herb walks and visiting you-pick farms.

Joining this meetup is free of charge and many events will be at no cost, however, some events will incur a monetary value, such as dining out or other group events, such as a Crawfish boil, ect. A small donation may be requested for other small events.

I hope you will join me, Mimi, on this “epic” adventure with food. Please stay tuned for the launch of the lifestyle site, “The Shameless Epicurean” online.

Stay curious, stay restless and stay hungry. –Mimi
