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.

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).

This book is the answer to my prayers - seriously! I had to drop out of catering college recently due to my age making me a total misfit, and my family commitments making it a logistical nightmare. I had totally LOVED the work though - something I'd dreamt of doing for many years - I felt so sad having to give it up. This book has shown me a way forward and given me hope again - Not only that but it's such a beautiful book - just sumptuous - a feast for the eyes and a treat to read - I love it!

The original handbook for the Underground Supper Club meme. Some tips, some stories, some recipes to give you a feel of what goes on at a secret dining event and how do it yourself. It makes it look easy.

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 have only attended one Supper Club - Frernandez and Leluu's, and after that, fell completely in love with the idea of Supper Clubs. Kerstin Rodger's (AKA Ms Marmite Lover) book couldn't have come at a better time. Although I'm not brave enough to want to start one up myself (just yet), I loved every minute of reading Kerstin's accounts of endless evenings entertaining and feeding complete strangers in her home. Another bonus for me, is that Kerstin is infact vegetarian, and so although there are guest recipes from other Supper Club owners, all of her recipes are veggie friendly (although some also include fish). Please don't be mistaken into thinking that I myself am a veggie - I LOVE MY MEAT! but I often have vegetarian friends over for dinner parties and spend weeks frantically trying to find something that doesn't feel like they've just been handed a load of side dishes, or that something makes for an interesting menu that everyone would be pleased to enjoy. This book takes a lot of that hastle away.

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!

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.
