Join my Sydney secret dinner party! Saturday the 25th of July. Location? Somewhere in Sydney.
Have you heard about secret dinners? Do you know what they are about? Have you been to one? Do you want to come to mine? Of course you do.
Secret dinners are a cool concept. A diverse group of people, most do not know each other, sign up to be part of a secret dinner. The date is set, but the place is unknown. Some take place in the great outdoors, some in a city car park or a rooftop, others in private homes. One day before the event, the location is disclosed, and the diners find their way to the dinner site. Diners pay for the produce, provide assistance if required, have a good time and then help clean up.
Myself and a bunch of talented foodies are throwing a secret dinner on Saturday the 25th of July, somewhere in the Sydney area..
Theme: Five courses of beautifully inspired dishes from the Lebanon and the Meditarranean
Produce: Top quality, seasonal produce from local farmers and growers (Thirlmere Poultry, Highlands Heritage Pork, Willowbrae Goat’s Cheese, Eumundi Smokehouse smoked goods, etc…)
How many: 30 people
Spots available: 0 left
How much: $45 to $50, depending on how much it costs for produce and venue. You will not be paying me for the dinner, but rather contributing to the cost of your meal. You will just be reimbursing me for the costs I incur.
Why so much: It’s more than reasonable for a 6 course meal, and we are paying top dollar for the best produce, no expense is spared. This is not for profit, all the money goes on produce, so if we have the cash, we’ll get some caviar and truffles, why not?
Wine: You’ll have to bring your own, as we don’t have a licence to serve, and don’t want to be responsible for you.
Location: Big Secret, but either inner city or inner west.
Who: Obviously me, my foodie friends, and whoever passes the test by sending an interesting registration email. Spots are dwindling so be quick.
Responsibility: We will be using top quality produce and following proper food handling practices, but you are responsible for yourself. No liability falls on me or my friends. I’m sure you understand.
