COOKING GROUP IS BACK!! JOIN US AT TRISH'S BEAUTIFUL HOME in Laguna Hills! CHILI COOKS UNITE!!!!I Chili season is coming and it's time get together and do a chili cook-off. The winning chili may be considered for entry into the Cook's Corner chili competition early May! So come with your best batches of chili and.....if chili is not your thing, come to relax with friends and enjoy a beautiful Sunday afternoon in Laguna Hills. ***Payment - $5 per person since this is the 1st event in awhile. Each time someone hosts a portion of it will go to them & to help me keep stock of extra items if a host needs it & to keep the group going. If a very small group - I will give to host for the use of their home & whatever minor expenses needed to put on the event.**** ***Please bring your own bowls, spoons, ladles...if needed. We never want the host/hostess to have to supply everyone with these items.**** ***If you would like - make copies of your recipes to share with the group*** Chili cooks have first priority for this meetup however cooks with favorite side dishes, appetizers and desserts are so very welcome! All complementary food items should be made by the participating member and presented consistent with our "chili event" theme. Also bring your beverage of choice. Please identify your food item when RSVP'ing. This is a private home party and it is important that you respect the amount of preparation that goes into this type of event and keep your RSVP current. Let's kickoff a spicy summer! Thank you Trish!! See you all there! Domino

What we're about

Public Group

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.
