A SUPPER club has been launched in Salisbury.

Victoria Ponsford has launched the Evening with MYO events, which take place in different venues in the city.

The first was held on Saturday at Henderson’s bakery in the Market Place, and saw guests put together their own pizzas, which were then cooked in the bakery’s ovens.

“A supper club could be seen as a secret society for foodies, or a brilliant alternative to restaurant dining, complete with a great social experience,” said Miss Ponsford.

Each club offers a different menu and the location is usually kept a secret until just before the event.

It aims to offer people a relaxed, homely setting for an evening meal, enabling people to try something new and to meet other likeminded people.

“From my exploits throughout Italy, I’ve picked up the best of each region’s recipes and I’ve had my food trialled and tested by local Italians,” she said.

Guests are asked to pay a donation to help cover the cost of ingredients, usually £20 for three courses and canapés.

“It’s driven from my desire to start my own business,” said Miss Ponsford. “In three years time I hope to open my own restaurant so I want to see what the public think of my food.”

Following the success of the first event, Miss Ponsford has planned other similar events on June 14 and 28. She also hopes to expand the concept further afield, and already has plans to launch in Winchester.
