Summer Supper Club

This past Thursday we hosted a lovely supper club at my vintage Manzanita beach house…

I really love these events.  There’s nothing like a table full of food, served family style, to inspire a true sense of community. This time around we did a pig roast and celebrated, friend and farmer, Jeff from Kingfisher Farms.  It was his birthday and he turned the big 6-0!

Here are some of my favorite pics…

In this case, too many cooks in the kitchen made things all the more delicious! Many hands went into the culinary creations, including Julie DeJardin’s, who made up a decadent cheese dip while Jeff, Terri Desaro and I cooked up the rest of the feast.  Fresh ingredients straight from Jeff and Nicole’s beautiful, local farm, only added to the flavor and goodness!  Kingfisher Farms supplies several local eateries with delicious produce, including the highly regarded Portland restaurant, Wildwood.

Many local business owners and artists were our guests including, Janice Gaines from the luxurious Spa Manzanita, marble sculptor, M.J. Anderson and artists, Julie Yanko and Scott Wilson (both have their wonderful work displayed at Manzanita’s only wine bar – Vino)!

It was an amazing evening!

Have a bunch of foodie friends? Consider starting your own supper club, sourcing your feast from local farms. It tastes better, supports your community and well…it just makes for a fantastic night! Supper clubs don’t have to be formal and stuffy, simple, wholesome food, good conversation and of course fabulous wine is all you need.  Want ideas and inspiration?
