We met Kate and her husband Jon at a blogger event a few years back and struck up a friendship. We’ve spent some great times with them and really enjoy having a foodie couple friend to pal around with. While we dined out together a few times, we had yet to try her home cooking. And if you read her blog, you will quickly learn that not only is Kate a clever writer (and her husband a great artist), but she also knows her way around the kitchen! Kate writes the awesome cooking blog If You Can Make This, You Can Make That.
So when they mentioned that they were going to host their first Supper Club at their home, we couldn’t possibly say no!
We started with lovely lovely apps.
And an awesome cocktail.
Here was the menu for the night.
And we each sat down to this surprise bag at our place setting.
Now I love corn soup…
But corn soup with homemade popcorn (the contents of the surprise bag) was like a miracle in my mouth. (How have I never put popcorn in soup before???)
And then out came the goat cheese souffle. Wow! Souffles always impress me.
Most souffles look pretty but taste bland. This most certainly did not. It was filled with flavor.
And then the scallops… ooooo caramelization! Delish (and with my favorite: squash puree)
The roast pork was great. Very moist and great flavors.
And then out came the bowl of schlag (homemade whipped cream). I could have just eaten this for dessert.
But there was a plum crumble in my future. Since I love both plum and crumble, this was right up my alley.
And then there were some soft, warm chocolate cookies that were mind-blowingly awesome. Kate keeps saying she doesn’t make cookies. I think she is a bloody liar.
We had such a great time at this Supper Club and met some fun other people. The food was delicious and I’m so glad to have such delicious friends! I also think Kate may have read this entire blog cover to cover to find all my favorite foods to put on one menu! How else would she have known to put together such a perfect meal of NYCNomNom’s favoritist favorites?
