What we're about

If you love to cook, bake, and meet others with similar interests, this group is for you! Every month, we'll take on a new baking challenge—from homemade cream puffs to macarons, croissants, bread, and more. I'm always open to suggestions and would love to hear what YOU want to bake next.

PLEASE NOTE: This is not a formal baking class. Instead, this Meetup is a chance for us to take on an unfamiliar recipe or technique and learn something new, together! All baking will take place in my home kitchen, unless otherwise noted. I started this group because I love cooking and baking, and I have a blast baking alongside friends. It's a great chance to get to know people while doing something fun and challenging. (It's also great to have someone to commiserate with when you start laminating pastry dough by hand.)

ALSO: Many of these Meetup events are free, or include only the cost of select supplies. If you're enjoying our group, please consider chipping in a few dollars and supporting the West Michigan Baking Challenge. Meetup charges $15/month for a group of this size, so your contributions go directly to supporting the ongoing fees associated with Meetup.com.

Now, let's get baking!
