Whether you prefer Italian, French, Thai, Asian, Persian or European food, there are companies that offer a unique ways to enjoy these and other types of food.

Supper clubs are one of the most popular trends in recent years. They are initiated and developed by individuals or couples, usually at their home, and they meet on a regular basis, for instance, once a month, in order to enjoy good company and great food. Each month, they will announce the date of the event, the cost, the maximum number of guests allowed, the duration of the event, and the type of food that will be served. Those interested in attending can usually sign up online, as well as pay online, then all they need to do is show up on the night of the event and enjoy it! These supper clubs offer a variety of ethnic foods to satisfy anyone’s palette, and they are a great way to meet new people while enjoying food that you may not have tasted before that time. Prices are reasonable as well and usually start at around £25 per person. This is a very small price to pay for everything you receive in return.
Cooking classes are usually one-time events, although they may be offered several times per month and they offer chances to cook a variety of foods such as: pizza, Indian dishes, cake-decorating, dim sum, sushi, Thai, and pasta. These classes are usually offered at various area restaurants and cooking centres and offer a fun way to get together with friends and try your hand at something new. Most of us have a particular type of food that we would love to know more about and these classes offer an inexpensive and fun way to sample what other cultures have to offer. These classes usually start at around £30 per person. Choose your food type and location, then pay online and voila – you’re all set to go to your cooking class!
Where to Find These Events
Companies such as TryMyKitchen list dozens of cooking and eating opportunities from cooking classes to supper clubs and even special events at local restaurants. These events include tasting opportunities for Greek, European, Vietnamese, Polish, Spanish, Turkish, American, and Indian foods. Since many of them are designed to merely taste a variety of foods, their prices usually start at around £6 per person, but they often include drinks with these events, so even with the low cost, you will be getting a lot for your money. Often, these events are a way to entice the customers to come back to that particular restaurant, although most often they are there for pure enjoyment.
With a lot of these companies, after choosing which event you would like to attend, you will pay online and then receive a voucher for that amount. The vouchers are usually good for a certain amount of time and you can use them any time during that period. However, since most of these events have a maximum number of attendees, you will most likely need to register in advance so that the host can know how many people will be attending. Also, you will give the voucher directly to the host.
Both cooking classes and supper clubs are managed by either professional chefs and cooks or very passionate foodies that have the experience they need to offer you something special. Since most of the information-gathering and scheduling of classes are taken care of through the company’s website, the sites offer a one-stop shopping opportunity that makes the entire process extremely easy. In addition, these companies’ websites offer all of the information you need to book an event, including any terms and conditions, cancellation information, and information on payment methods, event etiquette and registering for a free online account. The online accounts are especially convenient because they show every event you have registered for and attended and allow you to more easily register for events in the future.
