Sardinian Supper Club – Sat 9th June 2012 SOLD OUT

Born out of out of village ‘socials’ of the past, the ‘paladares’ of Cuba and New York Supper Clubs, my Secret Squisito supper club provides an antidote to lacklustre restaurant food. You won’t find Secret Squisito in any restaurant guide since it is my contribution to the ‘underground’ or ‘guerilla’ food movement. Secret Squisito is an anti-restaurant!

Secret Squisito is not just about food, it is about ‘good’ food and ‘conviviality’ – meeting new people and sharing our experiences at the table – something you can only get at home. Unlike normal restaurants diners sit down with us and other ‘foodies’ to experience my home cooking and local ingredients prepared by me fresh on the day.

At Secret Squisito there is no ‘sous vide’ but my Rayburn and pizza oven, there’s ‘no food service’ suppliers or artificial anything (because I am a bona fide farmers market producer as and my ingredients are grown here in Monks Kirby or bartered at Farmers Market that morning. In short, I make ‘real’ food with a modern Italian twist. Like any Italian dinner party my food is all homemade and you dine in my home.

There is a wine list – my husband Alex reviews locally avialable Italian supermarket or independent wines every month and gives his wine pairings – for you to bring your own wine so there is no disappointment from not-even-good £2.99 wine marked up to £29.99! Secret Squisito is an “anti-restaurant” in every sense.

Like any memorable experience, Secret Squisito is about the occasion and the ingredients – you are part of it and bring your contribution to the table.

guess who’s coming to dinner?

Just recovered from wonderful evening at Ms Marmites first ever night market in North London. Phew! 600 punters plus 40 stall holders packed into Ms Marmites gorgeous home. How brave is she!? Clearly passionate about promoting real food and so inspirational, “the English can cook!”

I am very pleased to announce that Ms Marmite will be joining me at my take on a supper club this Saturday, 14th May, at Squisito HQ in Monks Kirby, Warwickshire, CV23 0RA. This months menu is home cooking Italian style with a twist, using the best local and seasonal ingredients from my little black book of small producers that is the envy of Michelin star chefs. I’ve a few ticket returns available, so first come first served as they say! Menu and booking

Do come and join us, Warwickshire won’t know what’s hit it!
