We were really excited as the Philly Swappers are very well represented and have a lot of unique people who wait patiently for their events. Abi and I looked over the Eventbrite preview list of what everyone was making. I asked her what she was going to bring and she replies, "Er, humble pie?" The Philly Swappers are that good. There were things there that I had never seen before, and I finally got to try Kombucha, a sweet yet tart fermented drink with tons of health benefits.
We ended up bringing canned tomatoes, fresh pizza dough, concentrated vegetable stock, produce spray, granola, and spice rubs. The hosts, Marisa from Food in Jars and Amanda from @forkspoonknife, made a few announcements of how the night would go and reminded everyone to be nice. And another important reminder, you can say no to a swap - something I need to get better at.
It was nice being a real swapper, as in not being a host and worrying about everyone else. I learned so much, met some great people and look forward to future swaps with the Philly folks soon!
