Are you an adventurous cook who likes exploring new recipes? Do you enjoy trying the great foods of the country and the world? Are you open to sharing your culinary creations with other adventurous diners? Would you enjoy hosting dinner parties of eight to twenty guests, especially if the guests do most of the cooking? Is so, then this meetup group might be for you. We organize dinner parties for eight to twenty plus participants, rotating the venue among the members' homes. The size of the party depends on the space that a host has available. Each dinner party is a themed dinner, with the host choosing a cuisine from a particular region of the U.S. or the cuisine of another country. Participants research recipes and bring a dish prepared by them, consistent with the theme, and a bottle of wine or other theme appropriate beverage to share. We have a dinner party every four to six weeks depending on the enthusiasm of the members and the availability of hosts, but tend to hold off scheduling anything during the summer months. The group welcomes couples and singles. The only requirement is a willingness to create and share good food with good company. Since our dinners are held in the private homes of our members, please make sure you profile has your name and your photo, or membership will be declined.
