Denise Baker-McClearn

Denise Baker-McClearn is a food writer , blogger (@moelfabanssc), chef and supper club host living and working on a mountain in North Wales. Denise was born and raised in South East London to a working class close knit family. Her grandparents and mother were not well off but loved food, growing their own vegetables and travelling (her grandparents were one of the first sets of tourists to enter Yugoslavia and Morocco). These experiences had an impact and at eighteen Denise trained as a chef at Westminster College. Being young and eager for new experiences, she chose to embark on a completely different career and moved to Wales to study psychology, subsequently becoming a forensic and health psychologist and gaining a PhD. In 2009 she was made redundant and suddenly everything changed.

Denise started her supper club (the first one in Wales) in October 2009 as something fun to do while she searched for a job. Since then her career in food and writing has grown beyond even her own expectations. She has featured in The Western Mail, Elle Decoration (being listed as one of the top 5 supper clubs outside London), The Times and Huffington Post. She appeared on Britain’s Best Dish (which she won for Wales) cooked at Global Feast in London with Ms Marmite lover and Alex Haw, and has been interviewed on BBC Radio Wales. Her blog Moel Faban Suppers -pronounced Moil Va-ban (Welsh for baby mountain) – pays homage to her Welsh country life, London background and the local produce that surrounds her, drawing on local food experiences, recipes and tales from further afield.

With her private catering company of the same name (which grew from the supper club) Denise has cooked numerous bespoke dinners for both small and large events, weddings and regularly crew caters for recording artists and at festivals. She is Resident Chef for crew catering at The Green Man Festival. Denise has also written for various websites including Visit Wales and is currently writing and reviewing for the new British Street Food website.

Denise Baker-McClearn  is speaking at #FBC5 on “Launching Your Supperclub

Here, she will take you through what you might need to survive in this climate and how are you going to make your enterprise appeal in a place where either no one knows what a supper club is, or in a city that is awash with them. Sharing her own down to earth tips and experiences she will aim to equip you with the essential know-how to get started.

    Woah! I’m really digging the template/theme of this website. It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s hard to get that “perfect balance” between superb usability and visual appeal. I must say you have done a very good job with this. In addition, the blog loads very fast for me on Opera. Superb Blog!
