Find a Supper Club

Find out where and when is your local underground restaurant/pop up/supper club

Can anyone share their experience on how they handle the cheese course please. Being new to supperclubbing I'm not sure how to manage it. Normal dinner parties at ours involve a free for all with an large board of farmhouse cheeses, bread & oatcakes and copious amounts of Port ....think there is potential for me to run at a loss if I adopt that model!

Hi. I like the idea of everyone helping themselves to a huge platter on the table - I do not host dinner parties but am in the early days of a setting up a secret tea room in Derbyshire. I like the idea of people sharing at the table so I would go with how you would do it for friends and see if it works. You can always change it in the future.

Thanks Rachel... yes I think that's the way forward. Have you had your first tea yet?

I had my first practice afternoon tea with friends and family and it was a success and helped me iron out any issues. I'm planning another practice session on 14 July so can try out anything different before I invite the public on 25 August. It's all quite scary but so exciting as well. Hope all goes well for you xx

It certainly is .. Had a look at your piccies ... Looks lovely! It's a shame you're not closer or I'd be popping along! Looks of luck for 25th x

I would suggest contacting a local producer.  I did this, promise to cross-promote them at your event (just saying the supplier works).  You can then perhaps buy a lovely whole or cut in half sideways cheese?  I did this for my wedding recently which was only small.  I then stacked them onto a cake stand and surrounded with pickles and fruits.  I think I paid £25 for a 5kg 18 month matured cheddar in rind not wax and it looked amazing.  People loved the sociable aspect of just cutting theirs off and eating it.  I had four cheeses for 45 people and still have two layers left.  Funny how when it is a whole cheese, people take less than you expect!  Good luck, it sounds wonderful.

ooh and you can order the fabulous wild garlic cornish yarg which would be a good size and costs £16 delivered direct from the producer and looks & tastes divine. 

ah thanks so much for relpying, great advice. I'm going to be promoting Welsh produce tho so may have to give the yarg a miss ;-)
