BarCamp, according to Wikipedia, is “an international network of user generated conferences.” Now, there’s a FoodCamp, which focuses on – yup, you guessed it – food.
FoodCamps focus on food, wine, the Internet, recipe sharing, workshops, tastings, and the like. At the moment, the first two FoodCamps (and the upcoming third one) have been in Italy. Since the root of BarCamp-like functions is user-generated, all it takes is for people to make it happen in the location they desire. A FoodCamp can include cooking demonstrations, seminars on local food, a visit to a local store or farm, wine tastings, technique demonstrations, and so forth. The possibilities are endless. A FoodCamp can be held on one day or over a weekend. If the venue is big enough, it can be turned into a slumber party. It could turn into an Iron Chef party.
If you were going to host a FoodCamp, what would you do?
