Full Disclosure: A dear friend of mine is hosting this vegan supper club in a few weeks, and I’ve been helping out with the menu. I’d be ridiculously excited about an affordable and exclusive French-inspired multi-course vegan dinner, regardless, so seeing some of the plans (and the talk of candles and all the herbs de provence!) have made me even more excited about this.
Hope to see you there!
