The group meets on the second Thursday of even months at 11:30 am at the home of a member-host. Each participant is assigned a recipe to prepare which is shared with the group at a luncheon. All of the recipes together create a full menu from the selected cookbook or type of cuisine. Information on interesting ingredients and preparation challenges are shared by participants at the luncheon. Attendance limited to 12 people per event.
