Engagement Celebration

We finally got around to having some of our nearest and dearest Christchurch friends around to celebrate our recent(ish) engagement. The weather has been absolutely excellent lately and so we took the opportunity to bask in the sunshine outside on the deck and on the lawn.

So Glad It's Finally Barbecue Season Again

I fall in and out of love with food. Making something time consuming can be immensely therapeutic but the catch 22 is that stress can often dampen a love of creating.  I am back to re discovering the joy of pawing over cookbooks and scrolling through my favourites. It’s a funny one, in times of stress you often need to nourish your body and soul with good food but it is often the first thing that gets thrown to the wayside.

An Indian Feast

A few weeks ago now Dylan and I bought tickets to India. He has always wanted to go and I put more thought into what I'm having for breakfast than big overseas trips so I thought hell why not?

To celebrate Dylan came home with a new cookbook for us. At the end of week two and eight dishes down we thought The Supper Club was in need of an Indian feast.

How To Build a Vege Garden When You Have No Idea What You're Doing

So if the title doesn't give this post away, I will make it clear that this post is about gardening. It isn't exactly a dinner party but it is about growing our own food with the idea of being able to share it with others. Neither of us have any gardening experience and our knowledge has literally come from my mother and the internet. This adventure all started when one weekend Dylan and his Dad constructed a rather long vegetable box by the fence. It was sitting staring at us for a few more weeks before we rummaged up the courage to fill it with more than just our hopes and dreams.

Madam Edmonds & Mr Pine's Asian Kitchen

Asian cuisine is one of our favourites to eat and as we rediscovered last night, the flavours and cooking techniques between the countries within the region can be so vastly different. It was this variety that inspired us to host the second edition of The Supper Club with an Asian kitchen flair to it.

Shared Plates

This represents our first foray into the world of throwing (and documenting) regular dinner parties. We began planning a week in advance, and coaxed around our dear friends Gracie and Phil (G&P) with the promise of wine to kick things off.
