I’m breaking my own rule about food blogs without pictures. I did something fun and food related last weekend which I intended to write about here afterwards but as it turned out I was enjoying myself so much at the time I forgot to take any pictures, even dodgy fuzzy iphone shots. Still, I just cant go without writing something about it but I’ll keep this brief.
On Saturday I went to my first supper club, one of the last to be hosted by Aoife of MyHomeSupperClub (recently rebranded Jelly+Gin and organising other pretty cool pop up dining events if you’re interested). If you dont know what a supper club is just google it – others have already written long and interesting articles and I said I would be brief.
Tickets for most supper clubs sell out in seconds and I have been dying of excitement since I booked them a couple of months ago. I was excited but also equally unsure whether I would enjoy eating dinner in someone’s lounge with a table of strangers, but as you can probably tell it turned out well.
Maybe I got lucky with my dinner companions but it was very relaxed and not awkward at all. Of course nothing to do with the delicious green tea bubbly on arrival and several glasses of red wine after… mildly pished, ahem. Thankfully I didnt follow through on my cunning plan to nick the table cloth and pudding bowls which I took quite a fancy to.
Most importantly of all the tea inspired menu was delicious (chai pannacotta and rhubarb sorbet for pudding… dribble) and unlike a restaurant meal, I have a much better chance of bribing the chef for the recipes.
Unfortunately the next MyHomeSupperclub in May will be the last one for at least a while so I’ll have to go and try a few of the other ones in Edinburgh instead (probably a good thing as I think I would have got quite attached), but I just thought I’d write this short message to thank Aoife and her husband for their hospitality and let you know that the supper club is a secret worth sharing.
Just dont share it too far… I’ll never get tickets if you all start going!
