i was out at the corner room the other evening with my employer and a coworker and i heard about an old club in portland which was called the twelve forks. at this point, i am unaware as to whether or not it is still in cahoots, but i have decided to create a new version which will be referred to as port city eaters. the point is rather simple. a group of portlanders who love food and love to congregate over such love. once a month, a port city eater will host a dinner party at their home, or outside of their home- but the purpose is this: the host picks a theme- for example, if I were the leading host, I’d aim for a French theme, and then I would call each member and ask them what sort of French food they would be interested in bringing over. For those who seem to think this is a good idea- I am pleased, however, this is rather serious. You must bring a dish. You must participate! and you must LOVE food. I hope to find a good group of foodies like myself- all of different backgrounds and plan a meeting so we can discuss who would like to host the first party, and the logistics of that and what not. For now if you are interested, please comment this post, or reach me via facebook/enfinoui. Below is a detailed description of the new port city eaters club.
To be a member you must: enjoy food, and the process in which it is made. You needn’t be a superb chef, but you must enjoy spending some time in the kitchen. You must be a resident of Portland, Maine. You must be friendly and outgoing! And you must be excited about port city eaters. For now port city eaters is limited to a twelve member roster- however, each member is of course allowed to invite guests to dinners which encourage visitors. If by chance there is a great interest in port city eaters, then we shall discuss having more than one dinner a month, as to accomodate soon to be members so they can host meals too.
The point of port city eaters is simple. To learn about the food you love, share the food you love, and create the food you love. The more you work with food, the better it will become. The members of port city eaters will serve as a community of foodies, which will be there to support you in times of recipe failures, and those nights where you’d like to go out to eat, but have no one to go with. Your peers from port city eaters will be your new found friends!
The first meeting will be held in late August- date is TBA on vinetgrub.wordpress.com and enfinoui.wordpress.com.
