Have any other HO’s tried this? Chaos Cooking has cooking events where some brave soul volunteers to have guests come to their home, bringing their ingredients and cooking tools. Each participant makes a dish of their choosing at the event. The name Chaos Cooking is fitting, but somehow it seems to work out. The event lasts for about 3-4 hours, with people arriving at different times, so sharing the stovetop and oven is workable. The dishes prepared are not co-ordinated in advance, so the menu is eclectic, to put it mildly. Most of the participants have not met previously. The events are posted on their website and occur in various cities around the country.
Last night was the 3rd time I’ve tried it and it’s a fun way to meet other food enthusiasts and different cuisines.
