A Community Dining Experiment
A couple's passion for cooking and good company sparks a weekly supper club, a food blog and some mouth-watering photographs.
Thursdays at Worth Street is an experiment in community and cooking run by a couple, Tamy and Felipe, out of their Tribeca apartment. Every Thursday night for one year, Tamy and Felipe invite up to 5 other guests to their apartment for a supper club, with dinner cooked by Felipe (an ad industry pro with a passion for the kitchen). They have challenged themselves with cooking a different 3-course meal each week – never repeating dishes, and never repeating the same combination of guests. A different theme is ascribed to each dinner, inspired by at least one of their guests. For instance, a Thursday night dinner involving the theme ‘flowers’ was inspired by Felipe’s visiting sister-in-law after picking up flowers for the apartment. The theme resulted in a three-course meal beginning with goat cheese-stuffed zucchini blossoms, followed by a main dish of shrimp and calamari with coconut creme saffron risotto, finished by rosebud creme brulee.
Weekly experiments and experiences at the Worth Kitchen are discussed on Tamy and Felipe’s blog and on Twitter, and can be best visualized (and vicariously enjoyed) via Flickr. While the cooking is an expression of Felipe’s passion, blogging about their experiences is Tamy’s expression of hers – writing.
We love seeing any creative endeavor driven by passion, and shared amongst a community of extended friends and associates – and will continue to track Worth Kitchen’s mouthwatering experiments.
