Booking's for next weekend

The bookings have started to come in for next weekend which is great. Please let me know as soon as possible if you would like to book Friday or Saturday.  I have been asked a lot about payment and I know what the Brit's are like about "doing the right thing!" So I am going to give a guide as people want to know.  So for next weekend guide will be 30 Euros.  It will vary as the cost and hours of cooking vary too.  Can't wait to get started on this menu, my kind of food!

A day of rest.

Well I think it went well, I have met some new friends, laughed a lot and today is Sunday.  Time to put my feet up. Can't wait to start writing the menu for the next supper club!

Sat up too late with friends!

In a way I am glad we have less coming tonight.  18 for tonight and that will be the limit.  Every 1st of January my resolution is learn to say "No," but I never learn but tonight we will just be 18 and no more.  Luckily I have most things prepped so it should be a bit easier today....better get moving.  I love the smell of the roasted spices in my kitchen.

First night tonight!

Started nice and early and as the day has gone on more and more people have called and now I have 28 for tonight!  A manic day and a bit of a rush at the last minute but the dining room looks lovely with masses of candles and bunches of wild flowers from my over grown garden at the moment. Onion bhaji's, samosas, soup,curries and all we go!

Ready,steady, lets get cooking!

This is the bit I like, I've been and bought all my lovely ingrediants, they are all sorted in my kitchen, Radio 2 is playing and I'm off!  Mango chutney is so expensive here I am making my own followed by the 3 hour reducing of the infused milk for the kulfi.  Shortbreads next followed by mincing the lamb for the kofta's and so on.  Late to bed and and early start tomorrow ready for Friday.

Fancy coming for supper in France? .....Julia Child would have loved it!

My daily run is my thinking time and the thought that jumped into my head today was why not start a supper club here on the Cote D'Azur like all the trendy folk are doing over in London and NY!  So as always my acorn idea Wayne turns into an oak tree idea and we are off again!
