If you’ve ever fantasized about hosting decadent dinner parties on the foot of a majestic mountain or the middle of a snow-dappled forest or a charmingly rundown secluded farmhouse, you’ve got good company in the gals from Secret Supper. Based in the Portland, Oregon area, the founders of this quasi-secretive group have become experts at taking your wildest dinner dreams and turning them into a jaw-dropping reality (that you can buy tickets for!). Last time we caught up with them, they had just hosted a forest-floor dinner at Mount Hood. Today, we’re sharing another recent dinner, set on the shores of Oregon’s Rockaway Beach and hosted by Eva Kosmas Flores, Christiann Koepke, ana Mona and Jaret of Tournant. “For this supper we’d envisioned a delicious array of fresh summer seafood dishes,” says Eva Kosmas Flores, “and no cuisine better matched that premise than that of Portugal’s coastline.” With a menu that included Caldeirada de Marisco, almond custard cake, and fresh sardines roasted over an open flame, it was certainly one for the books.
