Secret Dinner Party, London

© The Secret Ingredient

What makes a dinner party successful? Well, if the latest London craze is anything to go by, it’s when the cook and the guests are complete strangers and you have to pay for your meal.

It started with Horton Jupiter, who decided to turn the front room of his 1970s flat into The Secret Ingredient, a cosy “restaurant” for twelve random diners, every Wednesday. Often in bare feet, he’ll prepare you a multi-course Japanese meal for less than the price of a takeaway.

Now more and more Londoners are opening their homes to host secret dinner parties. The Pale Blue Door has tranvestite waiters and The Rambling Restaurant won’t give you its address, only clues to follow to find your way there.

Don’t tell a soul, will you?
