{FSC Swappers} Swaptastic in 2013

New Year light.

“And now we welcome the new year, full of things that have never been”
― Rainer Maria Rilke

We’re back for another year of our food-related podcasting, book clubbing, food swapping anticsfsc academy teaching and daily posts on cookingbaking, boozing, diy projecting, gardeningfarmingfood-related reflections and food politic news. Before we get our hands dirty w/ new projects & recipes, its time to get registered for our monthly in-person events: food swapping. 

Maybe your ‘new year’s list’ includes:

  • meeting new people
  • getting out of the house sans kids
  • finding inspiration to cook or experiment more in the kitchen
  • sample new recipes & techniques
  • be entertained for 2 hours
  • or simply attending one of these crazy food swaps to see what all the fuss is about

All of these things happen at our monthly gatherings, so you can check many of your resolutions off your list in one two hour period- winning.

All are welcome and encouraged not only to come but to mingle, sample the swap items, ask questions and make friends & connections. We are a warm & fuzzy bunch who don’t bite, we’re huggers.

Tickets are going fast (one 12 left for Troy) so sign up today either as a swapper or a swap-curious folk, who has the best seat in the house: no stress and all the eating & chatting you can do in 2 hours!
