Hi, I replied to you "send me a message" Did you get it? It seems that for some people this feature does't work....wondering if mine works???

I would gladly host a Denver/Boulder potluck. I love the idea!

I'm from Riverside, and would be willing to join in SD or even somewhere a little closer? sounds like a ball! I just hosted a Wine and Food Pairing for a new group I belong to on Saturday night. With most of them, you have to start somewhere, but they are anxious to have another one!

Hi Norma, I've started organizing a Central Park picnic potluck, so send me your email.

I'd be happy to host a Houston area pot luck for the Food52 foodie crowd. (We're on the NW side, only a little over 2 hours for the Austin folks.)

And I'm just soooo bummed that I had to be out of town & miss the potluck. Boo. Can't wait for the next one.

Chicago, yes! Communaltable, I live in North Center, right near you, and evey, I'm a former, longtime Hyde Parker. Definitely interested in a potluck, any format OK. Let's be in touch.

I am so bummed that I missed the SF area potluck. Antonia James was the instigator and she should write the blueprint that she used for getting everyone organized.

And we were bummed we didn't get a chance to meet you! So we'll have to do another one really soon with your wine tasting/pairing idea. I do a party like that every Christmas and it's always a lot of fun for everyone. Also, my 'send a message' doesn't work, but Antonia, TasteFood, monkeymom, and others that were at this one have my email address for planning the next fun one!

Monkeys

over 4 years ago monkeymom

You know, my 'send a message' doesn't seem to work either. I am definitely in on future get-togethers and am looking forward to meeting my local food52 members.

Any D.C. 52ers out there that want in on what looks like a great time? Kudos to the SF crew that started such a great idea!

Looks like there is a good sized group - if you all want to send me a Food52 message w/email addresses, I'll get a group email going around so we can find a date.

Can I bring napkins? Wine? Not the venerable cook like many posters, I bring enthusiasm & make serious scrambled eggs. Metro accessible would be much appreciated!

I'm not on the Metro, so not a good choice as location, but so so willing/interested in putting together something. Only one other person emailed me. If you want to try to get together please send a food52 message and I'll be more than happy to coordinate emails to find a date/organize.

Super fun to see the photos and comments from the party -- we hope some more food52 potlucks will transpire, and if they do, let us know and we can post more photo slideshows!

Any SF Bay Area members who have not previously contacted me, and who are interested in future gatherings, please send me a note via the "Send a Message" link in my profile. (I've noticed quite a few new members since we started planning our recent dinner.) We're discussing a variety of formats, e.g., smaller groups with menus planned collaboratively, with each cook bringing a particular dish, to create a spectacular meal that an individual could not easily pull off alone. Whatever the event, all will be great fun, with terrific food! ;o)

Does that feature then send you an email? I have not used it before ..

To answer your question, aargersi, yes, it does. I would receive an email at the account used to set up my Food52 profile, which message would originate from "no-reply at Food52." To respond, I then go through your profile, setting up a new message. ;o)

OK so I went to my profile and I don't have a place to enter an email, but I get emails so Food52 has it ... I am such a rube sometimes :-)

To send a message, go to the profile of the person to whom you wish to send it. Above the personal data, you'll see a little green link, under "Contests" and "Blogs" at the top, that says, "Send me a messge." Click on that, and a little box will open. The rest is easy!! ;o)

Me

over 4 years ago TheWimpyVegetarian

As a heads up: be aware that not everyones "send a message" works. Mine, for example, doesn't send me an email and when i let the F52 folks know, they said I'm not alone and they're working on this. So when I contacted Antonia I was interested, I sent her my email address so we could be in contact. So if you don't hear back from some people that you reach out to with this link, it could be they didn't get the email, so posting stuff on it here is a good idea to make sure folks know about it.

I am sooo sad that I was not able to participate in this get together...I was in Florida selling wine. I will be home all summer if the group wants to do another event...perhaps food and wine pairing (I can provide Cab, Cab franc, syrah, merlot, and chardonnay)

I live on the northside of the city in Lincoln Square and super close to the Metra. I do think it goes to/from Milwaukee, Jennifer Ann. There has to be more of you Chicago foodies around?

I'm living in Hyde Park and would definitely be interested! Can't believe that there aren't more people from Chicago.

Really liked it, though in the interest of full disclosure, I'm partial to Amontillados. This is a bit richer than many, with great depth of flavor. Such a good value, too, at that price point.

It was lovely: raisin-y and dry. It went very well with cheese and dessert. I bet it would go well with a platter of Spanish jamon, too!

If we do one down here and tell you what we are making will you do our pairings too? OR - fly down and shop with us? ps our may be poolside in the late spring ... tempted? :-)

What fun! Looks like a great time, and lots of great food, was had by all.

A great idea! I know there are enough NYers on here for their potluck, too.

2009-11-28_phanouropita_acp

over 4 years ago Allison Cay Parker

Yes, there are. Are you volunteering to host? ;-)
We have to organize something. It would be great to meet fellow NY-ers face to face.

Of course, there's also the April "Food Bloggers Bake Sale" event coming up, which has found a home at the Brooklyn Flea... more info on that to come, but I'm sure some of us will meet there as well.

Still, nothing like potluck in someone's home, with some wine or sangria or something.

Gaby_by_sarah

over 4 years ago gabrielaskitchen

Agree! I wish I could host, but alas, my apartment is way to small! Any nyc'ers wanna host?

Gaby_by_sarah

over 4 years ago gabrielaskitchen

Maybe a picnic in the park since most of us may have way too tiny apartments? Also, Thanks A.C. for mentioning the Bake Sale! xogabriela

Local berries available late Feb, as is asparagus - these are the things that keep me from being too homesick for your turf!

over 4 years ago TheWimpyVegetarian

I know. It's amazing to me even after living here for over 20 years as a New England transplant. We can thank the farms in Watsonville (Monterey County) for these. Full disclosure: they're not quite as juicy and sweet as the ones we'll be getting in late April if that makes this a little easier. But I just couldn't resist when I saw them....
