The 1940s Supper Club


An interesting clip on a pop-up restaurant run by Ms Marmite- Kerstin Rodgers

At this moment in my life, although I’m pretty happy and coping well, I’m struggling with my weight, stressed, and concerned about securing a job, ┬áTo cover all bases I’m having to think outside the box and doing some research and making some theoretical plans ‘incase’ I do not secure employment.. and I need to secure employment real soon.

This morning, thanks to readers MollyByTheSea and Cookaholic Kate I’ve been made aware about a rapidly expanding underground movement in the UK called ‘Pop-Up” restaurants and supper clubs. Essentially a host opens their dining room to guests for the evening and cooks a set menu (all promoted through social media). Dinner party guests make a donation and bring their own bottle and it truly is a way to experience different foods and have fun.

The whole essence of this appeals to me and, in typical ‘Carolyn-getting-distracted-fashion’ that’s all I have thought about all day.

Would it be possible to have a 1940s Supper Club in my home once a month and share authentic ‘ration book’ cookery? People could dress up if they wished, there would be music and air raid sirens, interesting topics of conversation and some nostalgic foods.

I’ve worked out, with the help of my eldest daughter, I could cater for 10..

I’ll be doing a food hygiene course and will get my kitchen inspected and look into public liability insurance of course if it seems like there would be a regular monthly attendance.

I’d REALLY like your feedback…

  • Have you ever been to a pop-up restaurant or supper club?
  • What did you think?
  • What happened during the evening?
  • What were your expectations and were they fulfilled?

If you could take a moment of your time to voice your opinion I’d be very grateful indeed..

And finally, would you be interested in attending a 1940s wartime supper club and if so what would you love to taste or experience?

Thank you so much
