Such is the food passion of last night's guests that they hunted us out online as an unusual dining experience fit for their friends and birthday celebrations. All supper club virgins, we were delighted to convert them and to see and hear how they enjoyed the experience. The Table was booked weeks ago with a very well timed email from the host and as we discovered many happy coincidences between us, we got an overriding feeling that some things truly are meant to be.
Clearly, with our last supper fast approaching, I'm justified in feeling sentimental, and it's so satisfying to meet such wonderful people and be sure that our paths will cross again!
Here's how it turned out, we dished up some of the birthday girl and boy's favourite things. Who doesn't love a risotto followed by chocolate indulgence?
