Every month, I choose a theme, cookery book or cuisine, and have a group of readers of The London Foodie come to my home to cook, eat a delicious meal, drink and talk. I distribute a suggested menu a week or so prior to the event, the participants choose their dishes and I e-mail out all recipes. Each person contributes a dish and accompanying bottle of wine. There are no fees to pay.
I thoroughly enjoy these evenings as they are proving to be a great meeting place for those who stumble upon this blog and who are passionate about cooking and good wine. As much as I like eating out and finding some of the London gems I write about, I also love cooking and this was primarily the reason why I started The London Foodie.
Our next London Cooking Club evening will be on:
10th December 2011 - "An Italian Christmas" - Hosted by Gina (@Gigi_nav) and Italian food blogger Fede Rilli http://twitter.com/#!/federilli), Italophiles and resident experts on their home cuisine.
