RI Dinner Club ...?

JuliDav Sep 14, 2008 05:45 PM

Looking to start up or join a dinner club.

I tried searching the New England forums but didn't come up with much.

If you know of one or would like to start one let mw know : )

Thanks!

    If you don't get a good response here, try www.providencepalate.com. Good luck!

    What did you have in mind? Joining others at different restaurants? Or preparing dinner as a group in people's homes?

      Oddly, I didn't discover providencepalate until Saturday, when my server at Gracie's mentioned it while commenting on my camera. That's a good resource.

      (I'm not a RI person, just a frequent visiter from NH)

        I was thinking more of preparing dinner for the group and everyone taking turns once a month er so.

        Thanks..I've never heard of that site. I'll definately check it out.

          I've heard of a group or two around in the past... They mostly form around enthusiasts at certain workplaces.

          It's a nice idea. Let me know if you succeed. I might be interested, but unfortunately don't have the time to organize such a thing. :(

          Definitely check out Providence Palate as well. If somehow we could combine this site's level of activity and interface with PP's freedom of posting topics and insider users = perfect Providence food message board...

            Cooking Light has popularized the idea of supper clubs on it's website. There is a dedicated portion of their website/bulletin boards for supper club members/organizers. The idea of the supper club is a group of folks that get together monthly to cook and eat great food. Recipes don't generally have to be cooking light I don't think. It seems like the club will pick a theme and choose the food around that. I've never participated - too busy with school right now. But you might check out their website for more info on how to organize or even find an already existing one to join.

              You're absolutely right!

          My husband and I are interested in a dinner club with about 3 or 4 couples. We were in a dinner club while living in Florida, and loved it.. We went to different homes once every 6 weeks. Let me know your thoughts.
