The other day I hosted the first of what will soon be regular, local events for Feed Me Darling. A lovely Supper Club Party full of healthy, seasonal food and some of the brightest humans I know.
The menu was based on my new recipe subscription service, the Feed Me Darling Health Club. And the party was amazing in every way. Seriously. I can’t wait to do it again. But the best thing about it was being witness to the way people connect over beautiful food. Again. And again.
I’ve seen it a lot, of course, but this was different somehow. The call to action at the party was an open call for foodie feedback. It kept us all present while we were eating, thinking of ways to improve the dishes, alternative ways to serve or prepare them and what was so great about them. It was practically devotional.
I wanted to share some of the images of the food at the party with you. Because I’m pretty sure you can feel all that good food magic in them.
Here they are:
Making Roasted Squash w/Kale in my favorite baking skillet. Antique enamel cast iron. Red.
Fresh sourdough bread and wine. Perfect.
Maldon Sea Salt Flakes, dried apricots, candied ginger and pistachios ready to top Dark Chocolate Bark.
Beautiful winter citrus, apples, ginger and garlic.
Getting ready to broil citrus and cranberries for dessert.
Including friends in the cooking process is fun and brings people together.
Chocolate Bark. Bravo, everyone.
So yay, food. But that isn’t all. I also want to write all of this down so you might be inspired to throw a party for your friends, have your own supper club. And instead of just serving the food, ask your people to talk about it while eating. Ask them to participate in the process. It is a lot less pressure and way more fun. And really, you will be amazed how this conscious conversation creates deeper connections and opens up much better conversations about other things as well.
Of course, you can use these awesome Feed Me Darling Health Club Recipes, or you can create your own menu, of course.
