Welcome to my blog for one of the newest Supper Clubs in Edinburgh – I’m delighted to announce our first Supper Club will be held on 27th August, 2011. If you are interested, reserve your places by buying tickets or paying deposits for each place, which you can do securely through PayPal from the right hand sidebar on this site. You can also drop me a line through the Contact page; for instance, please do that if you are attending and you want to tell me about special dietary requirements, such as vegetarian, don’t eat fish, coeliacs, etc.
I’ve been an enthusiastic cooking hobbyist for the last twenty years. A couple of months ago, I was lucky enough to be in London and was really inspired to hear Kerstin Rodgers, who wrote “Supper Club: recipes and notes from The Underground Restaurant” talk. She spoke about her Underground Restaurant, which was perhaps the first in the UK. You can read Kerstin’s blog at http://marmitelover.blogspot.com/ and there is another brilliant blog by a friend of hers at http://bakelady.wordpress.com/
One of the things that she says in her book is that supper clubs are great for “lone diners, and women in particular may feel uncomfortable in going alone to restaurants on a Saturday night; large mixed tables remove that stigma”.
Please note that the appearance of this blog is going to be changing a bit whilst I get my head round all this blogging stuff and don’t be surprised if it looks quite different the next time you check in on this site. You can also follow me on twitter (@insideoutchef)
