If you've been popping by a day in the life of us for a while, you may have heard from time to time all about Food Club. Yes, you read right. Not Book Club, Food Club.

A year ago, some friends brought up the subject. They pondered on a club that would present the wonderfulness of something close to all our hearts: good food. And so a group of friends, and friends of friends joined

And Food Club was born. Here are ten delicious facts about food club:
  1. I've met the most amazing and interesting new people since joining food club.
  2. There are people out there who love food more than me.
  3. I've tasted new things I've never tasted before.
  4. I now understand what the fuss is all about with macaroons. Oh. My. Gosh.
  5. No matter how stressed I am, when I arrive at Food Club, there's always a relaxed vibe. And great conversation.
  6. We will never run out of food themes.
  7. Once a month doesn't come around quickly enough.
  8. We are all in Food Club for different reasons: from learning more to just the love of cooking. That aside, we all get along fabulously.
  9. There are usually the most thoughtful gifts (our year's worth of recipes bound in a cute little folder, thanks to Mel, Christmas fudges thanks to Yvette, mini puddings thanks to Kate). And let's not forget our Kris Kringle Recipe Book Gifts...
  10. There will be at least 10 more reasons to love Food Club next year... Cheers!
