After a busy day transforming the house and preparing a feast, we welcomed a group of diners, some from near some from afar, all new to the concept and experience of a home supper club. They discovered us here, here and in Woman and Home magazine (which I don't know if I ever shared on the blog.. hum...). Many told us that they had spent the day explaining to intrigued friends what it was all about. Now they were here to discover for themselves and to celebrate the last days of Summer with us:
To welcome Armstrong's hot smoked salmon with cucumber.
Tandoori stuffed button mushrooms.
The table with candlelight and sweet stocks.
To amuse Sweetcorn soup, truffled popcorn.
To start Scallops, crab, avocado and pink grapefruit.
Wild seabass queueing for the pan!
To follow Pan fried seabass, tagliatelle, rocket and basil pesto.
To finish Last of the Summer puddings - raspberry, basil and clotted cream.
With coffee Petite meringues with mango and chocolate.
And finally, a huge thank you to our invaluable helper, she may have remained invisible to guests but having Granny Scotland on hand to entertain and calm Eva (and give us a head start on the washing up) was magic. We couldn't have done it without you.
