Supper Club, Nov 23: Thanksgiving at Follies

supper 009

My first supper club has come and gone, hopefully leaving all the guests feeling like they couldn’t eat another bite, but leaving me hungry for another and another and another wonderful event where I can cook great food for people and watch them mingling and enjoying the company of their fellow diners. The next opportunity is already booked into the calendar and the preparation is well underway.

Thanksgiving Turkey [327/366]

Sunday, November 23rd will see Follies transported to the good ol’ US of A and all diners will enjoy a thoroughly American Thanksgiving feast. The evening will begin at 5pm with some all American canapés and those will be followed by a leisurely three course dinner full of traditional holiday dishes. Don’t worry, there will be nothing out of a packet or tin here! Everything will be home made and the recipes have been tweaked and modernized to please your 21st century palates.


A selection of canapes

Pumpkin soup with bacon and pecan cream

Orange and fennel-brined turkey, cornbread and andouille stuffing, whipped vanilla bean sweet potatoes with marshmallows and green bean casserole served with pan gravy, cranberry sauce and buttermilk biscuits

Pecan pie with maple bourbon bacon ice cream
