Supper Club Photography Project
When we started our supper club last year we knew it was going to challenge us and open us up to meeting people in our community, but we really didn’t expect to meet so many amazing people or for so many opportunities to arise. One of the most exciting was being approached by Emma Croman who wanted to work with us to create a supper club photography project, documenting the process of running our supper club – from planning our menus and sourcing local ingredients, to cooking and hosting guests in our home.
We’ve been a fan of Emma’s photography for a long time having seen it in some of our favourite magazines, blogs and websites so we felt very fortunate to work with her on a project like this. Emma is creative, inspiring and a lot of fun to work with and we’re so pleased to now count her as a friend. You can see more of Emma’s amazing photography on her website.
We were preparing for an Italian supper club and sourced ingredients from La Cave a Fromage, our local Mediterranean deli Sage and Relish and New Haven Fish Mongers. We prepared an Italian tapas for the starter with garlic prawns, marinated white beans, mozarella-filled arancini, walnut and rocket crostini and chargrilled peppers. The main course was one of my very favourite dishes, butternut squash ravioli with handmade pasta in a brown butter sauce with crispy sage, and we finished with chocolate olive oil cake, Frangelico and esse biscuits (from the Polpo cookbook).
We had a great group of guests for the evening and the conversation and laughter flowed whilst we enjoyed the meal together.
We absolutely love working on collaborations like this and would love to be involved in other creative projects to do with food, community and local producers. If you’ve got an idea then please get in touch, we’d love to hear from you. Or find out more about our supper club journey.
