Last night was the monthly meet-up of the CLE chapter of the Ohio Blogging Association. We met at The Chubby Cook, a brand new business started by blogger Scott Groth. The Chubby Cook specializes in takeaway lunches and dinners, catering, and having fun with high-quality, delicious food. As usual, Alicia from Poise in Parma was our hostess with the mostess. Alicia is also special events director for The Chubby Cook!

We had chicken meatballs, pulled pork mini sammys, hummus in cherry tomatoes, carmelized onion tarts, tapenade, puff pasty with brie and raspberry and more. There were vegan options, gluten-free options, and just a whole lot of yummy food. My favorites were the pulled pork – juicy, smoky, sweet, deliciousness – and the brie and raspberry tarts, or as I call them, little puffs of heaven.

After the eating and getting to know each other/catching up, we got a tour of The Chubby Cook facilities.

The Chubby Cook is committed to making good, healthy, delicious food. It’s really that simple. From organic and locally-grown products to great pricing and a staff that is truly passionate about their work, The Chubby Cook is a wonderful new local business to support.


It was another great Ohio Blogging Association meet-up with new and old friends, delicious food, and a new place to try for lunch, dinner, or group catering. Stay tuned to the Ohio Blogging Association page for information on the October meet-up!
