What we're about
Our club is a group of women from all over the world who get together at least twice a month to enjoy a couple of exciting "world" meals together. It's a delicious way to meet new people from around the world who all share one common passion - making wonderful food and enjoying lovely companies and enlightening conversations. We make new friends, get new recipes and learn new tricks from each other! Whether you are single or married with children, imagine being able to put a few new dishes from all over the world on your dinner table at home, how exciting that would be! And imagine all the new worldly friends you will be making!
OUR GOAL IS TO LEARN NEW COOKING STYLES, RECIPES AND HAVE FUN WHILE BUILDING LONG-LASTING FRIENDSHIPS IN THE PROCESS!
Our meetups mostly consist of 1.)Home cooked food (sit down meal or buffet style meal) and 2.) outdoor activities such as potlucks!
How does it work? 1) Home cooked food: The meal is prepared together by everyone at a new hostess' home each time. The hostess prepares a menu, does the shopping (the cost of the groceries will be divided among all participants), then opens her kitchen to the group for preparing the meal together. Sometimes the hostess prepares everything in advance and teaches a few dishes to the guests. 2) Potluck style: Each individual prepares at home and brings to the party one of her favorite dishes from her home country/culture, and shares the recipe with everyone.
Below is a clarification of some rules for the group that are effective 1/1/13:
1. We want to be able to recognize you when you show up at our events so all members need to have a close up picture of themselves on their profile. Please note that we have a private Meetup group so only other members will be able to view your photo.
2. Within 6 months of joining and after attending at least one event, each member is required to host either a sit down meal or a buffet style meal, of home cooked food, for at least 5 members and herself.
There is annual fee of $10 a year. New members are asked to pay the $10 annual fee within 30 days of joining. Annual fees are non-refundable. Fees can be paid in cash at a meetup.
