Monday Social Event

Team Cooking Social EventHoping to repeat the highly rated social event last year, we were looking for another fun evening to relax and enjoy each other's company after the day of presentations.  What we found was a "Hands-on team cooking experience that combines camaraderie and culinary education -- with great food as your reward."  The organization that runs these events promises "You will not find a more energizing, socially engaging, creativity unleashing, better smelling venue in town!"  If you want to learn more about the evening, follow this link (warning includes musical accompanyment): Cooks of Crocus Hill
