I treated myself to a couple of new books the other day.
The Supper Club is a book I've been wanting for a while now after reading about it on India Knight's blog. It's written by Mrs Marmite Lover - a home restaurant pioneer based in London.
The recipes are mostly suited to dinner parties and entertaining - although there are a few dishes which could quite happily be made for a weekday supper with the family. No doubt you will see some of recipes pop up on Girls Who Like to Gorge soon - especially the coconut Dahl, Butternut Squash and Blue Cheese Risott, Gratin Dauphinoise with Smoke Salmon and Marmite Cheese on Smoked Haddock - I could go on.
Inside the book there is lots of advice on setting up a home restaurant - which does sound very stressful; but great fun. I don't think it would go down well in my family home, however I had already conjured a few dream locations in my mind; there's my aunties house in the Norfolk countryside (with a huge kitchin and cosy dining room) and an old haunted house in Norwich where an old romance used to reside.
I should probably get the supper party part down before I start dreaming about starting a supper club - a girl can dream..
