Underground Dining Groups: Q&A With Maude Eaton of South Florida Foodies
The local community has also come together in an unprecedented way that usually occurs in bigger food cities like New York via underground dining groups.
It was hilarious. We had no idea what the other looked like or what some of our "real" names were. Introductions went something like this... "Hi, I'm Maude, For the Love of Food" and the other would say, "I'm Jean Marc, Il Divo." We all became instant friends. We are an amazing group of people who love food. We come together without pretense or attitude.
The power of social media is incredible! I thought it would be a good idea to set up a Facebook page that allowed other foodies to join the conversation, promote themselves, and share their food passions. We didn't have a name yet, so I called the group the South Florida Foodies. Now we are almost at 300 members, and every foodie brings something precious to the group.
