More About the Author

I trained as a photographer, starting as a teenage rock photographer for the NME. I was always passionate about food, spending most of my income on it. I gradually found myself cooking professionally for various cafés and at festivals. In January 2009, a few months after starting this food blog, I launched one of the first UK supperclubs 'The Underground Restaurant' which was an immediate success.
My blog marmitelover.blogspot.com has been a place to chronicle my triumphs, struggles, lessons, setbacks and progress with my living room restaurant as well as a few recipes! I've been at the forefront of the underground food movement, encouraging and giving advice to others along with the group that I started Find a supper club, become a fan: a place to promote supperclub events. (supperclubfangroup.ning.com)
I've also started The Underground Farmers and Craft market at my house, where would-be food entrepeneurs and home cooks can sell their produce and other supperclub hosts can demonstrate their cooking.
I'm a mother of a 17 year old girl known as The Teen. I often write about her on this blog: http://travelswithmyteenager.blogspot.com/
Yes I do really like Marmite and eat it everyday.
I'm available for writing and photographing commissions: get in touch at marmitelover@mac.com

Harper Collins have just published my first book: Supper Club: recipes and notes from The Underground Restaurant. I think it's quite different from most cookbooks. It's got a story too. People read it in one sitting. All the recipes work. I know, I tested them all. I'm not on TV yet. Maybe I will be one day.

Format: Hardcover
This book is unique - not only is it incredibly beautiful, full of Kerstin Rodgers' whimsical style (think French vintage with an edgy, slightly subversive twist), it is also eclectic in terms of recipes. This is because it is based upon The Underground Restaurant - the author's supperclub which is never allowed to rest on its laurels, but is constantly coming up with interesting themes. The book includes some of these, including a Midnight Feast of black food (Black Russians, Squid-ink Tortelloni, Marmite Chocolate Cupcakes) and Elvis Night (Deep-Fried Peanut Butter & Banana Sandwiches, Blackened Catfish) and the ridiculously pretty Flower Menu (Stuffed Courgette Flowers, Marigold Bread, Elderflower Fritters, ice cream served in a Flower Ice Bowl). Other interesting ideas include making butterscotch schnapps with Daim bars, vodka and your dishwasher, flavouring popcorn with butter, chilli and lime as well as taking lots of things back to first principles - candying citrus peel, for example.

This is a lovely cookery book, full of things I personally would like to try, but it's also an excellent read, offering as it does a glimpse into what is clearly a fascinating life.

Kirstin Rodgers aka MsMarmiteLover is the figurehead of the supper club movement in London. Her Underground Restaurant was the first supper club we went to and we loved it. It even contributed in a way to me making Secret Dinner Party, so I was pretty excited to hear about her book. When it arrived, the first thing that stuck me was the high quality production values of the paper and cover. There's a kind of homemade, French, shabby chic feel to the book which actually reminded me of her beautiful house in Kilburn. The colours and illustrations really work with the style of the writing and it's a book that I'm proud to show off to friends and it always has them instantly intrigued.

The content of the book is excellent. The first 75 pages are devoted to the history of the pop up restaurant and, my favourite subject, tips for hosts. Although the tips are for pop up restaurant hosts, they also apply to hosts of secret dinner parties, for example, plan your meal around your oven/cooker/fridge capacity. The only difference really is that pop up restaurants are generally for larger numbers of people (12-35) whereas secret dinner parties are more likely to be for 4-8 guests (the most we've had is 10, but we do have a large dining table).

The next 200 pages are recipes taken from Kirstin's supper clubbing experience and a few recipes from other pop up restaurants. One of the contributors are friends of Secret Dinner Party, Rambling Restaurant with their pork belly and black pudding, thyme and honey parsnips and cider gravy (you can see what Abi thought of one of our dinner parties by reading her review on [...]). MsMarmiteLover's recipes are varied and interesting, with plenty of vegetarian options and even cocktails.

Having visited Kerstin's amazing supperclub last year, I was so excited to hear that she had a book coming out. The book arrived a few days ago and it is gorgeous! The design is beautiful and even has a lovely ribbon. But the best thing about the book (other than the delicious recipes, of which there are many) is Kerstin's writing, which is friendly and funny. It's a cookery book but it's also a glimpse into what it takes to run a restaurant from your own home, complete with a how-to list and a directory. This is the perfect book for the aspiring supper club chef (and for the rest of us who want to make something a bit special at home).
