Saturday, July 17th at 7:30pm. Being ex-Advertising people ourselves, this film seemed very appropriate. Ohh, but we are not killers. As Cary Grant, a hapless New York advertising executive, gets mistaken for a government agent by a group of foreign spies, he is chased across the country while he looks for a way to survive. We will follow him from New York to Chicago, across the great plains and finally to South Dakota with a culinary treat from each location. Have you ever heard of an Indian Taco? What do they grow most in Indiana? What is Chicago’s most underground famous food? These questions and more will be answered soon enough.
Saturday, June 19th at 7:30pm. A trip around the world with Dr. Jones. Pulling from the countries the movie lands in, Aimee and I were sent into overdrive. From Nepal to Egypt to Peru there are tons of great tastes and ingredients to play with. For now, be prepared for a culinary voyage. We will post more as it develops. And no poison dates, we promise.
Saturday, June 5th at 8pm. Bringing a bit of California to the BK. Aimee and I are bringing a special twist to this months dinner. We partnered up with our good buddy Jack to bring you some of the spectacular and rare wines mentioned in the movie. In between scenes, as you eat and sip, Jack will impart some vino knowledge and pose some wine facts vs film fiction while pouring the next flight. In the meantime, Aimee and I will have some delicious food pairings that are inspired by these delightfully fermented grapes. We will also draw on the fresh and simple flavors from southern California to complete the menu. We are feeling some lamb, maybe some risotto and the dessert on this one…whoa, hold onto your forks! We have been planning this one for a long time. The idea that when Paul Giamatti drinks so will you was too good a daydream to not make reality. For those aficionados, the wines will include Sanford, Fiddlehead, Byron, and Hitching Post, heavy on the Pinot Noir.
Saturday, May 15th at 7:00pm. The Opener. Our FIRST dinner on the deck for the season. Aimee and I have not finalized it yet. We are starting the season the same way we finished it. Hooray for consistency. We promise, as always, it will not disappoint. We are thinking Ghostbusters equals New York but we realize it also means marshmallows. That’s all for the hints right now. We will post more as it develops.
Saturday, October 10th at 6:00pm. The FINALLY. Our LAST dinner on the deck for the season. Once again, Aimee and I have not finalized it yet. We have been waiting for this one all summer. Just like Mama Scorsese’s meal we will be cooking up some Italian classics with a bit of our usual twist. We promise by the time you leave you will feel as full as Tony Soprano looks. We will update it as soon as we have the savory details.
Saturday, September 19th at 6:30pm. Once again, Aimee and I have not finalized it yet. We promise a Cajun and Creole delight for your palettes. Perhaps we can conjure the memories from a past Mardi Gras or NOLA Jazz Fest. The good memories that is. No one needs to be reminded of the night you lost your shirt and your dinner, almost simultaneously, then woke up on the steps of that strip club on Bourbon with the big legs sticking out of it. I digress. We will update it as soon as we have the savory details.
Saturday, August 15th at 7:00pm. Once again, Aimee and I have not finalized it yet. We promise a summer menu that will remind you of summers by the beach as a little kid. Killer shark not included, unless of course we make it into a ceviche. We will update it as soon as we have the details.
FORKING TASTY SUPPERS is a roaming supper club that recreates the lost practice of dinner time. In our house, dinner time was a chance to bond, eat and laugh with family and friends. We restore this tradition by pairing simple, bold cuisine with a uniquely comfortable atmosphere.
We are prepping for this season and have some awesome partners we’ll bring into the kitchen. The relaxed and delicious components of our meals will stay intact but we hope to welcome a wider range of friends to the table spanning coast to coast. The stretch goal is to dip our toe internationally pulling together some of our foreign friend that we’ve become so close with over the years. With this all star list of underground chefs and food genius’ we’re sure to finish with a more amazing stories and many new friends. Get hungry and get ready.
Hop on the list to be notified of upcoming dinners. We promise you will always leave with a few new friends and a very full belly. Check out some of our past dinners below and we hope to see you soon.
More on our Suppers:
Our suppers are an ever-changing experiment in creativity, both culinarily and experientially. Some dinners take place on a secret 60-foot deck under the glow of a huge movie screen. Other evenings pop up in a commandeered restaurant for just one night. Sometimes we even curate dinners to specific audiences as you’ll see below on the sign up list. We are always discovering new places to host our dinners and constantly inventing new dishes to pair with these distinctive locations.
You talkin’ to me?
The season 4 opener of REEL TASTY was quite the oasis of an evening. It may have taken us a while to get going this year but we kicked off with a bang. The night itself was an unexpected 84 degree evening complete with a slight breeze. Sandwiched between two blistering hot weeks in July, we lucked out is an understatement. Read more.
Ariba! Ole! and Amigos!
The season 3 finally of REEL TASTY went off better than we could have ever expected. Again we bit off a little more than we could chew. In the end the Mexican fiesta, with our favorite three amigos, was a pinata smash hit. Although we didn’t have an actual pinata we did have everything else very well represented form pork to beans to tequila. Read more.
The great escape finally happened.
When hurricane Irene blew in we didn’t know if this dinner would ever happen and we never thought a “true” escape from New York would be necessary. Luckily we got it back on the calendar ironically a day before perhaps the most somber escape from New York ever. On September 10, we filled a table of 20 to celebrate NY, it’s food and the sci-fi, 80’s cult classic Escape from New York. Read more.
