Any cooks in the house?
Posted May 19th, 2009 - 11:59 pm by from San Francisco, United States (Permalink)
Hey All!

Some of us love to eat food, some of us love to photograph food, while some of us love to cook, and I suspect most of us love to do all 3 at once!

So the question is, are there any cooks in the house? Some good ol' Szechwan heat? Provençal Bouillabaisse anyone? How about Ethiopian cuisine?

Do we have enough interest in this group to start a rotating dinner party? Maybe wine + food and some good conversation? Let's get the conversation started!

Wow I was just thinking the same thing! I would love to know how to cook all those things! I have the space for the first one, when should we do this?

I love to cook, but I'm down in South Bay and it's not that easy for me to get to SF. You're welcome to head down to my place for a cooking party though.

Sounds good to me. I am more then willing to host this at my house in Oakland right next to the lake and just about 2 miles from the bart station (if needed). Just let me know the details.

What a great idea! Not sure if I can host, but I can definitely cook. Just took a cooking class in Thailand and would love to try some of the recipes now that I'm back in the US.

This is progress....... Lets decide on a date, location, and food. I suggest June 5 or 6th, my house (haha easy for me - in the Fillmore area - the Muni drops off right in front, I have a huge kitchen and lots of pots and pans) With aforementioned Thai and Indian dishes with a mix of either Italian or Mex (thats what I can contribute) Thoughts?

Hi Everyone - June 6th won't work for me - any chance it could happen on the 5th? Or maybe the 7th?

Posted May 31st, 2009 - 1:02 am by from San Francisco, United States (Permalink)
I am open to either of those days - what do we want to do?

Posted May 31st, 2009 - 9:20 pm by from Santa Clara, United States (Permalink)
I could do the next weekend (13th)..I work June 5,6,7

Posted June 5th, 2009 - 8:05 am by from San Francisco, United States (Permalink)
Ok who can be in on a 13th event and what can you bring? Lets hurry or my window will be closing for June. No - can't happen!!!

Posted June 5th, 2009 - 5:54 pm by from San Francisco, United States (Permalink)
I should be available on the 13th, i'll double check my calendar a bit later today. This is exciting!!

Posted June 5th, 2009 - 7:25 pm by from Columbus, United States (Permalink)
Unfortunately, I'm not available at all that weekend. I think I'll probably catch up with you all in July - work is crazy for the next couple of weeks. Have fun! See you in July.

I am new to CS...Im looking forward to meeting some surfers...I could come and bring anything on the 13th! Let me know..Kaci

So here is what i am understanding from these postings: matt, emma, myself, ashish, kaci, all down for at least cooking on the 13th, with liz taking a rain check. I think we can all live with this head count to start? PM me for specific dishes and arrangements and I think we have us the start of a delicious dinner on the 13th of June!

Great! My cooking is my artistic side, so I love to start with main ingredients and fuse them together into something delicious...I cook Italian, Mexican, Seafood, Vegetarian, spicy or sweet flairs.....whatever you are into. I like to pair wine with cheese, foods, and desserts....So just let me know what I can do..Im flexible and will attempt anything...I will bring 2 other new surfers and foodies that can contribute as well! Kaci

I Love to cook and entertain...I lived in Napa for 6 months and love wine as well as pairing it with food..I'd be in on the rotating dinner parties! Kaci

Hey, this sounds wonderful! I would absolutely love to join you guys! I mostly cook Thai food. The only problem is, I have to work the night of the 13th, so it'll have to be next time :) Enjoy!

Looks like the update to this thread is a bit slow. Let's set up a new time and set up an actual meeting this.
