Today we meet Holly, host of the Winchmore Hill Supper Club At The Larder. If you want a truly local experience with a hospitality guru, then follow Holly on Instagram.
Tell us a bit about yourself and your background… I come from a hospitality background, I've always worked in Pubs and restaurants, I studied hospitality management at university and was a restaurant manager. I am currently the operations manager at Eatwith in the UK and visit around 52 supper clubs a year, plus running my own! You could say supper clubs are my life, I love them :-)
What inspired you to cook? I've always been a keen cook from a young age, I used to watch all the kitchen/food TV shows when I was little. I remember making my parents breakfast every Saturday from the age of 4! As i got older, I really was inspired by Jamie Oliver and his simple cooking and charming fun personality. He made me want to become a TV chef!
What makes your Supper Club special? My supper club is all about the hospitality. I love to make people feel welcome and their bellies full! No one leaves my supper club hungry put it that way! The food is from local shops and I really love to promote my local butcher who I have been going to since I was 3!
What's the best meal you've ever had or made? Best meal I have ever had is super hard! I eat for a living! But I am pretty proud of my Christmas dinner this year, there was only my immediate family, but I cooked my socks off! My sticky toffee pudding was really outstanding! Plus a posh Sunday roast is exactly what I am about!
Any advice for supper club guests? Come to make friends! These events are all about getting to know people, having fun with them and eating good food! I've made so many friends over the years going to these events, I've heard amazing stories and loved getting to know people over something we all love FOOD!
This sounds very drool worthy, we can’t wait to see what you serve up next Holly!
