What we're about

Meetup locally with other people who like to cook or want to learn to cook! Trade recipes, tips, ideas, cookbooks, and discuss all the magic that occurs in the kitchen! Our gatherings are FANTASTIC parties in which we feast on delicious potluck meals, toast each other with a glass of fine wine, share stimulating conversations, rock out to the music, dance, laugh, and have fun, fun, fun! At our potluck events, EACH attendee is expected to bring a dish to share. If you invite guests, make sure they also bring food to share.

Generally, there is a theme to the type of cuisine featured at each event. Have a suggestion? Then tell us, and we'll be happy to sponsor a gathering featuring a specialty cusine of your choice. In addition to enjoying potuck meals, we also explore restaurants, wine-tasting opportunities, cooking classes, food-preparation demonstrations, and try various ethnic cuisines at cultural festivals.

We're always looking for members who are gracious enough to host gatherings in their homes. Whether you can only host a party of 10 or accommodate up to 50 people, we are delighted to plan an event in your home. Please let us know if we can stage an event in your home.

PLEASE NOTE: Since most of our parties take place in the private residences of our members, it is necessary that you have a recognizablehead -and-shoulders photo of yourself on your profile (not your pet or a pretty sunset) in order to attend events that take place in people's homes. This "front-page" photo appears on your Meetup profile and is shown when you RSVP for an event.
