Tenth anniversary potluck. [Mar. 2nd, 2007|03:47 am]
My cookery website is ten years old this April. I'd like to have some kind of celebration of this.

What I have in mind is a potluck dinner, at my house, where everyone who feels like it cooks a recipe from my website, and then we all sit around and eat them, and drink tasty boozes. Cook at home and bring it, or come early and cook here, whatever suits you. Or even come and cook the night before, and I'll keep your dish in the fridge overnight. Pretty much everything on the site can be prepared in advance, and either reheated or served at room temp.

I don't just want people to cook, of course, I also want people to eat. If you don't want to cook, that doesn't matter; I'd just really like to have you come and celebrate with me.

I also don't want anyone to feel beholden to recreate my recipes exactly. Interpret, substitute, do whatever you like; I'd love to see what people come up with. I won't hold you to keeping things vegan, though it would be nice if you could, since then more people will be able to try your dish.

This will be on a Saturday in April; there are four of these, on the 7th, 14th, 21st, and 28th. The 28th is out, since I'm on Food Chain rota the next day, and that involves being up early. Also, mikidesade will be in the UK from the 10th, so I'd prefer the 14th or 21st since then she has a chance of being able to come too — but really, the best way to decide this is to put it to the vote!

I'm interested, and could come on...

Saturday 7th April
Saturday 14th April
Saturday 21st April


I'd definitely like to cook
I might like to cook
I will selflessly refrain from cooking in order to eat more

Hello Kake!

i'll actually be in ireland as of the 10th but if i can work it out i'd love to come. i'll have to talk it over with astrogoth and see what he thinks. i'm sure he'd love to do it, it's just a matter of coinage. flight and hotel being not free :P

so for me, without talking with him about it yet, i'd think the 21st would be best. but don't hold anything up on my account :)

Hmm, I might at a push be able to manage to come on the 7th, but the other two are my sister's wedding and Mike's birthday which we're planning to spend visiting his parents.

I can't do the 14th as I am looking into selling jewellery at an art market locally :) Then again, everything has to be out by 6pm, so if I were really crazy I could consider coming after that. But I'd have to be really pretty insane to do it, as it would probably stress me out. Other days good though :)
