I loved this book so much! The Secret Supper Club is a magical debut novel. A wonderfully uplifting, funny and gloriously romantic tale that I guarantee will have readers glued to the page. Be well warned though, her mouth-watering food descriptions will make you wish you too were a member of the Secret Supper Club ... or in my case, that I'd kept a lock on the fridge door while reading! (Claudia Carroll )
This is a beautifully written book about love, food, secrets and self-discovery that will make you continue thinking long after you turn the final page. (Daily Mail )

If Hannah had her way she'd be cooking for a living but she doesn't want to upset her parents, who'd rather she went to Grad school and take up an academic career, so she settles for her boring day job and keeps her cooking for her spare time instead.
When Adam ends their relationship Hannah finds herself having to look for a new apartment, eventually renting the basement apartment from landlord Blake. With her self-esteem at an all-time low she finds herself agreeing when her friend Rachel suggests she set up a Secret Supper Club from the apartment, even though it's not strictly legal, after all what can go wrong as she loves cooking. But this is when the fun really starts...
I'm sure that most of us can relate to Hannah's predicament about wanting to please others and not necessarily doing what we want, I know I've certainly been guilty of this in the past. I really enjoyed seeing how Hannah's confidence was restored, despite a few hiccups along the way, and seeing certain characters get the comeuppance they so richly deserved.
The one thing I'd say about this book is don't read this if you're hungry as you'll soon find yourself salivating at the descriptive writing of the feasts that Hannah prepares for her suppers... One of the things I've been craving in the last couple of days is Cinnamon Buns so I had to buy one today for breakfast... last splurge before diet starts tomorrow!
This was a really enjoyable, funny, debut read and I cannot wait to see what Dana has in store for us next.
However, when it comes to the details of the menus, shopping and cooking for the supper club, the pages are a real treat to read through. From Jewish holiday foods to state-specific classics, each supper club is themed and the guests - and readers - learn something new every time. The passion and enthusiasm Hannah has for her cooking is more than evident, and as well as getting more than a little hungry, you really feel for her as she battles to get her dream of working as a caterer realised against her pushy parents, who are mortified at the thought of her even cooking as a hobby. Quite frankly, it's enough to inspire anyone to get out and away from any dead end job and go out and realise their own dreams!
As you can imagine with a secret underground restaurant, there are more than a few hiccups along the way, and the bad to worse scenarios keep you eager for more as you think, along with Hannah, that things can't possibly get any worse.Read more ›
As a paediatrician who has to sometimes break the bad news that someone's child has cerebral palsy this phrase shows insensitivity, crassness and a total disregard for some of the best people I know.....
I would give this book less than 0 stars if I could.
Washington DC think tank where she works thinking up recipes, lusting over various food blogs and
thinking up extravagant meals.
All Hannah wants to do is cook, but her high flying academic parents do not believe that a catering
career is suitable for their daughter and they won't hear of her abandoning her post when they had to
pull a lot of favours in to secure the post for her in the first place.
Hannah gets dumped by her boyfriend who she absolutely adored and her world begins to implode at a
rate of knots and she has to move out of her beloved home.
Every cloud - Hannah moves into a basement flat complete with a landlord - Blake who happens to live
above Hannah in the house and slowly Hannah starts to get back on track with her life.
This is a fabulous read and Hannah is a great protagonist, feisty and vulnerable and very very
likeable and believable I rooted for her from the start and left me still thinking about the book
a long time afterwards.
