A reason to gather with friends is enough for our photographer, Chantal, to throw an awesome dinner party. Finding inspiration by the recent trend of magazines and blogs focusing on gourmet food makings, cocktail crafting, and the gathering of friends and community (which we love!) like Gather Journal and Kinfolk Magazine. As Kinfolk Magazine puts it, "focusing on those shared loves that bring us together: the enjoyment of food, friends, family and time spent in community whether around the table or out-of-doors." So Chantal, and her (very talented) roommate Tania White (check out her Food Economics blog, Sin Azucar, pretty good stuff!) who loves to cook, did just that: created a little supper club, aptly named for the location of the gatherings, The Gunn Street Supper Club. The inaugural dinner was hosted at their modest home in North Park, and the table was filled with friends and familiar faces from the community - all of whom contributed one of their many talents to the occasion.
