Club Gastronomique

Gastronomy is the study of the relationship between food and culture, the art of preparing and serving appetizing food, a style of cooking for a particular region, and the science of good eating.

If you like to bake, cook, eat or talk about food, consider us! We mix together food, friendship, cooking, eating, and the sharing of recipes to create something pretty special! We meet in small groups, once per month and share a meal that has been created around an ever changing theme. All experience levels are welcome and we will work hard to place you in a group that seems to fit your particular interests.

Couples Bon Appetit

Couples Bon Appetit group is up and running again this year, highlighting the great dining around Cleveland. This is an opportunity to do a social night out with your significant other, (although members have been known to join together to partake in the fun venues we visit)! Consider attending Bon Appetit. It will be a great evening out and we’re sure you’ll find out why our couples have such an enjoyable time. Plus, it’s a great opportunity to enjoy wonderful food and new friendships.
