What is it?
A safari supper is a communal meal hosted at three or four different houses. One person/family makes the starter, another – ideally living within strolling distance - cooks the main course, and so on. Diners make their way round the village and enjoy a diverse, local meal!
It saves money, it shares out the work, it saves the planet by sharing resources, it gives the main cook a break, it’s a fun, friendly way to get to know our neighbours, it’s a meal out without driving, it’s a meal out if you live alone and find it hard/not worthwhile cooking for yourself, it’s a pleasant stroll between courses, it introduces us to new tastes and lifestyles. But mostly we want to celebrate Waldringfield’s Annual Produce show…
Anyone! Whether you live alone on beans on toast, or regularly host dinner parties of 12, everyone is welcome to host. Kids are particularly welcome, as are people who don’t usually cook for their household. The burden often falls on one person, historically the woman - why not give your mum/dad/wife/husband/main carer an evening off?!
We decided to hold a Safari Supper following the annual Produce Show, which most people leave with trays full of fruit and veg…
Seven participants took part in the Safari Supper, starting at Fishpond Road, moving on to Cliff Road and finally braving the rain to round off the evening in Sullivan Place. Fancy joining us next time? Watch this space!
Keep it local!
