The Secret Supper Club by Dana Bate
  

Lovereading view...

A charming romantic comedy, The Secret Supper Club is a story about finding yourself, fulfilling your dreams, and falling in love along the way.

Synopsis

The Secret Supper Club by Dana Bate

Starter: If twenty-six-year-old Hannah Sugarman had her way, she'd be whipping up carrot cakes and running her culinary empire. Instead, she spends her hours cooking up papers on the financial crisis. It doesn't help that no one in her life takes her passion seriously - not even her boyfriend. Main: When her relationship implodes, Hannah decides to jump-start her life by hosting a secret supper club out of her landlord's flat. Her underground operation presents some problems. Running an unlicensed restaurant out of someone's home is not, technically speaking, legal. Dessert: As the success of Hannah's supper club grows, so do the number of secrets she is forced to keep. Can Hannah keep her pop-up restaurant underground? When mysterious guests turn up for dinner, can she handle the heat? Or will she have to step out of the kitchen?

Reviews

Gloriously escapist ... with delectable recipes peppered throughout, this witty read will inspire you to follow your dreams. * Easy Living * A jolly fictional debut. * The Lady * This is a beautifully written book about love, food, secrets and self-discovery that will make you continue thinking long after you turn the final page. * Daily Mail * I loved this book so much! The Secret Supper Club is a magical debut novel. A wonderfully uplifting, funny and gloriously romantic tale that I guarantee will have readers glued to the page. Be well warned though, her mouth-watering food descriptions will make you wish you too were a member of the Secret Supper Club ... or in my case, that I'd kept a lock on the fridge door while reading! -- Claudia Carroll
