Many regular followers of this blog and attendees at the supperclub will know that whilst food is my passion it is not yet my full time occupation.

Until last year I worked at Arts Council England and spent a huge about of my time on trains and motorways – often planning menus and thinking about food. I now work for myself as a independent arts manager and project manager and this summer has turned into a brilliant but hectic period of juggling and plate spinning. It is all very exciting and if you want to find out more then have a look at Margate’s Summer of Colour and the Folkestone Triennial.

What it means sadly is that I cannot manage to also squeeze in a June supper at Macknade as planned without losing my marbles…I may however pop up in Whitstable or Folkestone in an impromptu way so keep an eye on here and on Twitter @emwilco for info.
