The 8ateclub was set up in 2010.

We were chatting about hosting people for dinner and how it is difficult to steer away from dishes that we know are tried and tested because who wants to serve up a disaster!

The idea was born for the 8ateclub. A place to experiment and explore our with cooking in a dinner party setting.

Four members have four dinners and at each dinner the member brings a guest. This means that in each round you cook one meal but enjoy 4. Perfect!

The lucky guest gets to sit back and enjoy a, hopefully, interesting dinner and can then leave their feedback here on the blog.

We have had various guest members over the years and you can explore through their  menus.

The only rule is that you do things you have never done before, out of your comfort zone is the best place to be!
