Let’s start here: What is a cooking club? Simply put, a cooking club is a small group of friends (usually about 3 or 4 people), that get together on a semi-regular basis to either take on a large cooking project (like weekly meal prep) or explore an unfamiliar cuisine or cooking technique (like global cuisines). What are some of the benefits of a cooking club? The benefits are many, but here are some of the most valuable:
Who do I invite? Consider your kitchen size and the goal of the club before sending out that mass text to friends. We recommend 3 or 4 people per club, but if you have more space and a bigger menu feel free to invite more people. How often should we meet? The choice is yours! Weekly, biweekly, monthly? It really comes down to your goals. If you’re tackling meal prep, then weekly or biweekly is likely for you. If you’re learning a new cuisine, meeting once a month is great! Have we convinced you yet?
