Grand Opening: Old World Table Supper Club&trade
Martha Stewart meets Margaret Mead
Upper Montclair, NJ Friday, November 04, 2011: Looking for the antidote to restaurant letdown? Searching for the solution to overpriced eateries serving salty food by awkwardly friendly wait staff? The answer's a foodie's favorite trend: the supper club. And one has launched in Montclair called the Old World Table Supper Club&trade .
Although Lisa La Valle-Finan routinely prepares expats for global reassignment as a global cultures consultant, with a background in cultural anthropology, she's also a born cook who's been entertaining friends and family for over 20 years.
The Old World Table Supper Club was born. Unhurried. Unpretentious. Reasonably priced so diners can experience the magic of a European meal. Rustic yet elegant. Mediterranean food to satisfy the soul and soothe budget. Prix fixe It was also created in response to what is perceived as European because according to American restaurateurs it usually implies expensive. The only thing that should be high is the quality of thepany and food.
Anthony Bourdain might call her a cook's cook. Not professionally trained. Just someone who relies on the old ways. From memory. And desire. And in typical old world fashion, you won't find any signage or ads. It's all word of mouth.
The old world ambiance is reflected in the fabric and colors of the Mediterranean, with coral silk drapes, set against pale green walls. The space is filled with inspiring, original art including well-known portrait artist, Elsie Julia Miller, a founding member of the Montclair Artist Colony and a 17th century Italian map drawn a contemporary of Rembrandt.
Cost is $50 per person for an all-inclusive prix fixe menu of mezes and one of the cornerstones to her brand: either Old World Bread&trade or Old World Pizza&trade . Expect a seasonal soup, main dishes like Roti de Poulet or Sole Meuniere root vegetables made using an old Sicilian grilling technique, granita and espresso. Menu, reservations and payments can be made at OpenTable. Seats up to 12. Open Friday - Sunday 7:00-10pm. PayPal and all cards.

Global Cultures Workshops
In a world where Americans practically invented globalization, they seem to be unaware of their place and responsibility in it. But if they do their homework on culture, they will up-skill to a more level playing field be morepetitive and marketable.
That means bing culturally dexterous. Acquiring local knowledge of Asia, the Middle East, Latin America, Africa and all of Europe. Going beyond evident culture (, food preferences, clothing choices). To understand the hidden dimensions of what makes the other guy tick. Like, how people make decisions and process information. Whether there is gender disparity. Whether the needs of the individual or the group take priority. Whether a job gets done by task or relationship. Are the adverse to risk. And, do they have infinite patience.
