    Do you want to get together with other guys to prepare a meal, learn about cooking and food preparation AND have a great time in a social environment? If you want to get together with other guys interested in preparing a meal and having some social time together – the Queer Cooking Club is for you. The Queer Cooking Club is not a class, but rather an opportunity for guys to come together to prepare a meal and have the opportunity to socialize while enjoying the meal that they have prepared together.
