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.
This is a nicely produced book with pretty pictures and a few good ideas for the kitchen but if you're planning a new venture yourself this is only part of what you'll need. A hefty dose of courage and a lot of hard work is also needed.
I own almost a hundred of recipe books, from celebrity chefs to strange little finds in second hand shops, but I can safely say that I've never bothered to actually read any of them all the way through from cover to cover. I tend to just use them to flick through and get inspiration/ideas. However the Supper Club was different. I didn't want to put it down, and read the whole thing in just two days. It takes you through the 12 steps of setting up a Supper Club, the hard lessons learnt by Kerstin, a brief autobiography of her foodie life so far, and contains lots of great sounding and unusual dinner menus and recipes, as well as top tips... like how to make a bowl out of ice and flowers!Read more ›
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.Read more ›
