FODalicious Fireworks Feast – the menu

17 Nov

Menu Supper club Nov 2014

 

I think we are just about recovered from our second supper club! It’s quite amazing the range of emotions you go through on the lead up to a supper club:

Excitement – we’ve booked our next supper club! Let’s go…

Confusion – what shall we cook, how much will people pay?

Anxiety – Why am I making tiramisu? I’ve never done this before

Confidence – We can do this… how hard can it be?

Utter despair – what are we doing? We’ll never get this ready in time

Madness – running around like a headless chicken on the day/days leading up to the supper club

Elation – we did it! That went well, wow, it’s amazing how quickly time flies! Let’s do another one! YEA!

and repeat!

Our last supper club, was an all round success, thanks to our super organisation skills and hundreds of lists, and not forgetting our lovely waitresses who came and helped us out on the day! Our menu is below, we’ll be adding the recipes as and when we have a chance!

We’ve been pretty quiet here haven’t we?

21 Sep

I am amazed that people have been looking at our site, even though it has been a long, long, long time since we have posted anything, so thank you to all of you that have stumbled across us and apologies for being so quiet!

The reason for the Fod-a-licious silence? Well a multitude of things really, I haven’t been feeling too well, so have been pretty uninspired when it comes to cooking – everything I ate seemed to leave me in pain, no matter how good I was, but hopefully a visit to the gastro in a couple of weeks should help, work has been mad, JM has a new fabby job and I have changed jobs slightly and on top of all that, we decided the next step in our FODMAP adventure was to run a supper club, which we did for the first time last week – it involved a LOT of prep, but we really enjoyed it, so are planning the next one!

Before that happens though, we are going to update you all with some of the things we have made for the supper club and we’ll be back on the invention tests for new things to make!

So thanks again for sticking with us, and we promise to update you more regularly!
