I’m intrigued by the underground supper club movement – dining in an undisclosed location with a surprise gourmet menu – and I recently found out that there’s one in my area. With a cost of $100/person (which is fair considering the seven-course meal that’s served) we probably won’t be attending anytime soon. However, I did enjoy browsing their website and reading some of their past menus.
I love reading menus for inspiration. Deciding the menu for a dinner party is my favorite part (but sometimes also the most challenging aspect) of planning a dinner. I like to be creative and come up with something that’s unique, but at the same time I think it’s important to keep it simple so that I can enjoy time with my guests.
Last weekend, my husband and I hosted a dinner party for 8 friends. We asked each couple to bring one course for an Italian meal. Even though no one knew what the others were bringing, we ended up with a great meal!
I wish that I could have dinner with all of my food blogging friends (it would be a very tasty meal for sure!), but since we’re spread out all over the world, I thought it would be fun to host a virtual dinner party. Hopefully it will result in a great menu that will inspire lots of cooking!
Here’s how it will work. The theme for the virtual dinner party will be Spring. The meal will include the following courses:
If you’d like to attend, comment on this post with a link to the recipe on your blog (preferably with a picture) that you’d like to bring to the party, no later than Thursday (April 14). On Friday, I’ll post the menu for the Spring-themed dinner party, along with links to the recipes I chose for each course.
Looking forward to dinner together! Hope you can make it!
