i am a today show junkie and yesterday they were talking about the new in thing- cooking clubs. a bunch of friends get together once a week or once a month to socialize and cook. i was thinking about offering this as a theme show. have the host pick an appetizer, main dish, dessert, etc. probably three recipes, and split her guests into 3 groups to make each recipe. make it a hands on show. call it a "start your own cooking club", let me help you get started! its still in the works. im trying to come up with a flyer. ill let you know how it comes out.

There is a flyer on here that talks about a pie or tart class. Part of the fee for the class is products (pie plate or tart pan) and ingredients. You might want to see what that looks like and go from there. Good idea and good luck! Let us know how it works out!

Erin I have a question. So each time they meet each person has to order $30 worth of stuff? is that what you mean? So that the hostess gets the $150 mark free stuff right?

I have been doing this since January !! It's fantastic !! Only difference is that we don't meet each month....My ladies thought that would be too much !! So I just get their orders and send in the show !! I have it shipped to me and I deliver !! It's working out great !

I attached the flyer I handed out at my fall shows....has my cookie swap invite on it too....

Heather - Hey from New Bern! Question on your Cooking Club - I think its an awesome idea and I know I could round up 6 people to participate, but I am just wondering, $25 apiece only equals $150, which is not much in benefits, so I don't see how that could generate much excitement from the participants each month. Am I not quite understanding?

I guess it would help if you got more than 6 people - however, that would stretch out the months are are they willing to wait?

Can you also post your form that you hand out and do you send an email reminder at the beginning of each month?

Thanks - great flyer and great idea. Cindy <><

One of my downline has been doing this VERY successfully for a year, meeting EVERY month. Each "member" spends $25. The consultant "host coaches" the monthly host to invite other people (which gives her additional booking potentials) and collect outside orders. She has also started using the Pampered Chef Pool (attached). Her average "cooking club" show is probably around $500, with some that have been over $700.

If you leave it at the $150, they would at least get $15 in free stuff, and the monthly host bonus, so it is definitely better than nothing, but once the first host goes gang busters the others will want to follow suit!

Good luck!

Gotcha - thanks Nicole, I hadn't thought of the fact that they would know ahead who the host is and could get some outside orders. This $150 can then be thought of as a bonus to get them going!

And you are right - $15 Free and the Host Bonus is better than nothing!

tina- this is still in the works for me, but i was just planning on doing it as a theme type show. that way, if the host wants to continue, she can do it on her own. if the host or her friends want to keep booking monthly with me, that would be great!
