The first rule of Supper Club is: You do talk about Supper Club
I do not know if Supper Clubs are back, never left, or are demodé. But I find them to be the perfect plan to organize this fall and make the winter outlook a little bit more bearable. This initiative consists in planning dinners around the table in the company of awesome guests and a conversation in which you never hear someone say, “Isn’t it unbelievable how hot is its? And it’s almost November!”. The dishes are usually made from organic ingredients, products purchased at faraway trips or snacks with a great story behind (“these gummies were made by nuns from an enclosered convent in Asturias, using real fruits”). The guests pay a fee for the invitations, thus covering the costs (and maybe a little more).
A few weeks ago I interviewed Laura Jackson for Vogue Spain and she transmitted me the joy in organizing these dinners. The multifaceted it-girl based in London met Alice Levine and together they decided to organize their own Supper Club. Every now and then they announce when the next dinner will take place (the next will be with Jamie Oliver!) and open the time to register (anyone can attend). The dinners are held at Laura’s apartment, and they select every detail, from the music, to the gifts they give to the guests.
Who knows, maybe you’ll have news of my Supper Club soon … For now I’ll stop by Kinfolk.
