Morgan James’ new cookbook, Impromptu Friday Nights: A Guide to Supper Clubs by Paul J. Kenny, aims to unite friends and family through the art of food. More than an average cookbook or menu guide, this multi-faceted new book teaches aspiring chefs and inexperienced hosts how to organize and throw the best dinner parties.
The best way to socialize is over a good meal, but restaurants can be crowded and eating out gets expensive. Chef Paul Kenny has found that the solution is supper clubs! Hosting regular dinner parties with a select group of friends is more intimate, more affordable, and more fun than going out to eat all the time.
However, coming up with a unique menu, organizing the right guest list, and maintaining a fun, comfortable atmosphere for a party can seem daunting. In Impromptu Friday Nights: A Guide to Supper Clubs, Kenny has an answer for all these woes. The expert chef and experienced supper club host provides a step-by-step guide to organizing a successful, ongoing supper club.
There’s so much more to a dinner party than just the food. Impromptu Friday Nights offers readers tips on finding the right people, developing the menu, reducing stress, handling costs, party preparation, and actually cooking the meal. Each chapter outlines a different kind of supper club based on different preferences – from a formal club for fine dining experts to a club for those who have zero experience but still love to eat.
There’s something for every type of foodie. Though not a cookbook, Impromptu Friday Nights contains sample menus complete with detailed recipes, for those who are just starting their cooking journey.
Written by someone who loves great food almost as much as he loves sharing it with others, Impromptu Friday Nights: A Guide to Supper Clubs is a concise how-to planner with a whimsical tone that reminds readers that cooking should be fun and socializing should be stress-free.
