For new members of this list, welcome! And for earlier adopters, thank you for all your feedback on our inaugural newsletter. Quite a few of you asked that it be sent out more regularly, so for now we'll give a fortnightly arrangement a try and see how we go based on your feedback. Do continue to let us know what you'd like us to include (or ditch!) for these mailings.
We've been really encouraged over the last few weeks by new hosts signing up to make their events bookable through Edible Experiences. In addition to supper clubs, we now have baking classes, butchery courses, cake decoration workshops, knife skills training and wine tasting experiences listed and ready for you to book instantly on the site. We've also been encouraged by all of you out there making bookings through us! As a new and growing venture we're absolutely delighted at the opportunity to be of service to you hosts and guests alike, and we hope to make more and more delicious connections among you as we go.
