HomeEc is a monthly, themed potluck-style gathering started in Toronto by Joel and Dana of Well Preserved. Each month, attendees bring a dish to share that meets the monthly challenge and have a chance to chat with like-minded people about whatever is top of mind. Columbus is the first off-campus participant, and there is a virtual component for those who participate from home.
Last month, the challenge was root vegetables. We had an enthusiastic crowd and stimulating conversation covering many topics, food-related and not. To see my co-host Rachel’s recap of how it all went down in Columbus, head over to Harmonious Homestead. (Have you seen all of the press Rachel and her homestead have been getting lately? Spend a little time over at her site to read about the projects they have underway!)
If you haven’t joined us for HomeEc yet, this is the perfect month to cut your teeth. Maple Syrup is an ingredient that most of us will be quite familiar with, and this challenge will certainly spur many mouth-watering ideas for dishes to share. Our plans for a monthly signature cocktail, following Toronto’s lead, should be easily accomplished with the March theme!
Come on down to ReHab Tavern and enjoy tasty libations, delicious food and great company. As always, join the conversation and RSVP on Facebook.
