supper club: october

As Hurricane Sandy bears down on Brooklyn, and the threat of losing power increases, it seems an appropriate moment to think back on friendlier times in my Park Slope apartment.

I moved into my new place just days before the September supper club, which a friend generously hosted at his Williamsburg home. October was thus the first time I cooked for a crowd in my new digs, making for an extra-special occasion.

The food was seasonal, spiced and veggie-centric. Guests were a delightful, motley crew – from a food editor to a jazz composer, a couple math geniuses and a few French friends-of-friends. Check out the pictures below, as well as the full menu.
