We’re pleased and excited to announce a new eG Feature: the Klatsch. The eGullet Society and eG Forums thrive because we converse, chat and connect about food and drink, cooking and eating. We want a conversation with our writers, and the Society as one: engaging the writer and engaging in the topic with other members.

We're seeking members with something new or exciting to discuss in their culinary lives:
  • Something as huge as starting a new restaurant, or as "simple" as cooking a big meal for a few friends.
  • A culinary student or professional cook doing a stage.
  • Remodeling a kitchen or a wet bar.
  • Going on the attack against an invasion of pantry moths.
  • A culinary tour to a new destination.
  • Designing the winter menu for a restaurant or bar.
These are just a few of the possibilities. Klatsch is open not just to folks cooking a week's worth of meals, but to anyone with an interesting culinary adventure, a unique viewpoint and the desire to lead a vibrant discussion. At its heart, a Klatsch is about conversation—something beyond answering questions about your daily culinary routine. What are you doing or where are you going that will make for a good dialog with other Society members?

A Klatsch is not required to last a full week: three days of detailed and interesting discussion is certainly welcome, as is, say, ten.

To volunteer, start by re-reading the explanation and guidelines above. Then, shoot an email to klatsch@eGstaff.org, and a member of the Klatsch team will be in touch to discuss your proposal.

Please feel free to ask any questions here.
