The world of culinary arts is about sharing and enjoying the common experience of food preparation and scrumptious meals.
The Culinary Arts interest group explores many facets of the food world. This group provides an opportunity to learn, to create, and to inspire.
In the past we have considered the history of food, food preparation styles, food sources, the variety of dishes and foods from different cultures and the skills that food preparers use to create special dishes.
We explore the world of foods in three different ways:
- Food exploration events that are hands on demonstration events. Examples would be making tamales, or crepes or pasta.
- Food exploration events that are research based to a specific topic such as the history of teas, or salt.
- A dining experience using the recipes of a distinguished Chef /cook book author who has made a notable contribution to the culinary arts field.
Steps needed to host an event:
- Choose your topic, decide what presentation style to use, invite a co-host to assist.
- Select a date (2nd Thursday, even months), a time and place.
- Work out details with the co-host such as who accepts the RSVP's, who makes the handouts, etc.
- Consider the space/facilities needed for your presentation. If a cost is for your event is involved, include the amount in the email notice.
- Send an informational email invitation to EPWC members who are interested in the Culinary Arts events. Include a cut-off date and a request for an RSVP .
- Send event information to Betsy Hase so she can prepare a clipboard sign-up page for the luncheon.
- Take several photos during your event that can be sent, with the event write-up, to EPWC web page.
