OK, OK. I know I’ve been a bad, bad blogger recently. I can only tell you that I hit a bit of burnout at work this summer – precisely the time you’re supposed to be loafing off, slipping out of work early on Fridays and dashing off to beach locations near and far. Instead, I was chasing deadlines, and pulling some late hours. Well, boo hoo to me.
One of the cool things I did this summer was attend the Plates & Records Supper Club. This was the second time that Joann Kim, Ram Subramanian and Andrzej Nowicki threw this bash for their friends and this time the menu was South African.
On the way to the bar in Bushwick that was hosting it, I was treated to a gritty artwalk.
But on to the important stuff–the food.
On the menu:
Cocktails: Cape Town Collins and Malawi shandy
Chicken and veggie mini-pies
Watermelon, arugula and feta salad
Bunny chows (a quarter loaf of bread scooped out and filled with curry – see pic below)
Grilled corn in herb butter
Spinach with ground nuts
Milktert with rasberry coulis
Post-dinner treats included live music in the alleyway alongside the bar. One of the acts was none other than Jon Burgerman, whom I coincidentally wrote about for the Elle Decoration blog a while ago. He seems to be branching out from hyperactive doodles to deadpan rap.
