I’m getting lots and lots of emails via this website at the moment, so many that I can’t quite keep on top of the responses. I’m sorry that I haven’t responded, I’m not being rude just very, very busy! These are the most frequently asked questions.
How do you set up a supper club?
Everything you need to know about setting up a supper club is in Kerstin Rodgers’ book Supper Club. It’s not that expensive and if you are planning on setting up a supper club it’s definitely worth the £12 or so. This book was my bible when I started, as was Kerstin’s blog. You can also read this blog from the start if you wish because I’ve pretty much documented most of the highs and lows of the past year here.
I can’t advise on the legalities supper clubs. Every area is different, and there are lots of grey areas too. You will have to make these decisions yourself, and seek advice from your local authority.
Can I come to your supper club?
My May event (it’s booked up) is the last one for a while. I may do another one or two later in the year but at the moment I’m focusing on Jelly+Gin (do 'like' on Facebook to keep track of dining events) and Burgher Burger.
Can you recommend another Edinburgh supper club?
Follow these two blogs for up to date information on the Edinburgh supper club scene:
I haven’t been to all of the Edinburgh supper clubs, for the sole reason that I’ve been running mine so frequently. I was on the verge of being black-balled by friends if I went supper clubbing on my weekends off too! I have been to Crescent Dining and Chai Lounge, both are excellent. I’ve also been to Tealicious an afternoon tea pop-up which is the most divine treat on a Sunday. There’s a supper club for everyone, each is as unique as the host/s so try them all out!
Finally, if you’re thinking about starting a supper club, just do it.
