Portland Cooking And Recipes Meetup Group Pages

"If you are what you eat, then I only want to eat the good stuff".....Remy, "Ratatouille"

I started this group because (oddly), there weren't any similar active groups in PDX at this time.....and it's SUCH a town for foodies!! Additionally, the cooking classes I have attended have been limited in time allowed (if any) for hands on interaction and Q &, they are not offered at a very affordable price.

In addition to a large variety of food related events, we will try and schedule theme parties at member's homes. The host will select the theme and choose a menu item they would like to demo for the group(if they so can also just be a "themed" pot luck too..... and other attending members will bring a course that compliments the theme). The host may assign a catagory or ask attendees to sign up for a menu item. Members who are attending the event should bring their menu item already prepared with just some last minute prep or baking off that might need to be done. As many people are "experts" as certain items...this is a wonderful chance, as a host, to be the "star chef" in your own home demonstration....and teach others your magic tricks..(and we know there are a LOT of kitchen tricks). After that, we all get to sit down to a fantastic dinner with great company! The host will determine the size of the group. Minimum should be 10 with a maximum of.......?? Whatever you think you can handle and still intereact with all the guests. And remember....not every dish will work every time.....not every meal will be a four-star experience....but that's part of the PDX cooking and recipes meetup experience...making friendships and history along with food.

In addition, I will be posting other events, including but not limited to: dining out (local chef-owned restaurants only), outside cooking classes, wine tastings, baking classes, food shows and festivals (I still have a restaurant pass and can get us into commercial trade shows), in-home soup swaps, in home cocktail parties....even flower arranging classes (you have to set a beautiful table, right?)......anything that is food, wine and entertaining related is game!

As many of the events will be in private homes....I need all members to post a photo of themselves for comfort and security reasons. If a photo is not posted, I may have to change your rsvp from a yes to a no.....

As our events are very popular and space is shows are subject to removal from the group or put on wait lists if the event is full and can secure a spot after wait list has been removed....thank you for understanding :-).

This group is for everyone. Those new to the kitchen as well as seasoned chefs who want a group to share their knowledge and experience.

Until we meet....
