Pop up supper clubs
Pop up supper clubs are dinner parties with a difference. Here at the MK Food Revolution we facilitate two kinds of supper clubs:
The Community Table
The Community Table is a group of individuals who enjoy eating, cooking and sharing food in a relaxed environment. A Community Table group (of which we are hoping to start several) normally has up to six members. Each member in turn hosts a supper club around once a month.
Members of the group don't pay, but contribute by hosting their own dinner for the other five people on another occasion. Dinners can be themed or not, depending on what works best for the individual group. The atmosphere is normally very informal (although that always depends on the host!).
Supper clubs are generally BYOB as the hosts don't have a licence to serve alcohol (apart from an opening drink).
Please note: Although MK Food Revolution will help you by matching you with other people in your area who would like to partner up for a supper club, it will be up to your little group to decide when/where you meet and how you keep going after the first meeting!
Pay-as-you-eat supper clubs
Pay-as-you-eat supper clubs are a bit more of a formal affair. They also take place at someone's house, however, the guests pay for their dinner in advance. In return, they are under no further obligation but to show up and enjoy their evening.
Normally, dinners are served by semi professional cooks, but brave and dedicated amateurs have also been known to take plunge to host. Expect up to six courses and delights for your taste buds. Menus are generally released only close to the date of the event, but guests should have an idea of what they will be served when they buy their tickets.
We can help you host your own supper club. You should be a confident cook who has hosted dinner parties at home in the past. First dinners can be priced up to £25 (with further dinners potentially costing more).
If you would like to host a pay-as-you-eat supper club, please get in touch via firstname.lastname@example.org.
Are you interested in sampling some culinary delights- or cooking them?
Sign up to our Supper Club mailing list and 'generator' below!
One round of sign ups always lasts until the 20th of the month; you will then have heard from us by the 30th. As we would like to connect as many people as possible in the first round, the first sign up deadline is the 20th April 2016 midnight.
If you have chosen the 'Community Table' option, you will then receive the details of your other group members and the name of the person who is your first host. Where you go from there is up to you! After the first meeting we will check in with your group to see whether you enjoyed the experience and/or whether you would like to be re-matched for the following month.
If you are in it for the 'pay-as-you-eat' option, we will add you to our 'supper club' mailing list and you will regularly receive details about professional supper club events. It will be up to you which one you want to book. Places will be allocated on a first-paid-first-served basis.
We are collecting some personal data from you (your name, postcode, number and email address) but promise not to pass it on (beyond the below) or use it to spam you. Your email address will be shared with your supper club group (if you have chosen the Community Table option) and your phone number with your host (in either case). We will use your postcode to match you with other supper club enthusiasts in your area (to help you save on the fuel bill).
