cooking club {wannabe}


I'm not in a book club, or any other club for that matter, but what I'd really like to be in is a cooking club. Something where friends gather and create with food. I'm not sure how it all comes together, like if the "host" cooks everything, or just picks a theme and everyone brings a dish within that theme, but I do think it would be so much fun. Cooking can be so creative and such a treat for the senses, it can only be better spent with a group of friends ready to eat! Anyone interested?

I'm in, as long as it doesn't go the way of the swap soiree and Susannah and I don't fight over some sort of chocolate star fruit concoction.

My parents gourmet dinner group is one of my favorite memories and how I became interested in food and wine at a very young age.

There were 10 couples and 2 singles and each would host a multicourse meal, often themed, paired with wines.

Dinners were held once a month and were quite a production. I still have some of the old menus listing the courses, the wines, and an occasional recipe.

Of course, not everyone has the space or budget for a 24-person dinner these days. I know that my tiny condo could hold 6-8 max! The number of participants or frequency of the dinners could always be scaled accordingly. with fewer couples/hosts or dinners held every other month...

I would love to have the opportunity to participate in a dinner club at some point in my life. Sharing good food and wine is a very underrated pleasure, imo.

tanya - I LOVE this! so not only will we be eating gourmet goodies, but we'll be creating great memories for the kids - now I really want to do it. My friend Jenny (a pastry chef) said she's head this one up, so I'm really excited. I love the idea of the menus - I'd save every one of 'em.
