Help Topic: Joining the Society


Thank you for your interest in joining the Society for Culinary Arts & Letters, whose mission is to increase awareness and knowledge of the arts of cooking, eating and drinking, as well as the literature of food and drink. We are a member-supported 501c3 not-for-profit public charity.

If you would simply like to visit the eGullet.org web site to peruse eG Forums, take an eGCI course, or read our many other online services, you don't need to join. If you've come this far, however, we hope it's because you want to become a part of our mission and join the community of Society members.
