Google Hangouts: live video chats online in The Larder

Google Hangouts are live video conferencing events online. You can join in with the conversation by posting questions / comments.

We're going to try having a regular Google Hangout every Wednesday evening at 7pm UK time. Sometimes we might be joined by a guest or two, and sometimes we might open up the Hangout to include Larder members who want to video-chat with us.

Google Hangouts are very easy to use (although Google might prompt you to install a plugin). Just follow the links we include with the announcements.

You'll need a gmail / Google+ account in order to ask us questions via the Google+ system, and you might need to install the Q&A plugin. Once you're in the live feed, click on the small set of squares near your name / picture at the top of the screen, and choose Q&A.

If that doesn't work for you, or you don't have a gmail / Google+ account, you can also just watch us live on our YouTube channel and ask us questions via Twitter during the Hangout (@AnotherNibble), or by email beforehand: lookinthelarder (at) gmail (dot) com

The Hangouts get recorded and uploaded to our YouTube channel not long afterwards. So don't worry if you can't make it for the live event. Just email / tweet us your question/s beforehand, and we'll be sure to answer them during the session so you can watch later.
