    Dinner began with soup before easing into three courses of salads. A carrot-coconut-almond torte from Alice Medrich’s new “Flavor Flours” (above right) was a dessert favorite, and parsley-flecked garlicky naan rounds (bottom right) were the Bon Appétit senior food editor Alison Roman’s contribution to the meal.

Founded by artist Zoe Crosher, “The Fainting Club” is an old boys’ club, for girls. It gathers over food and drinks when inspiration strikes, and aims to strike its members with inspiration. It celebrates and draws creative women from multiple disciplines—artists, writers, filmmakers, chefs, musicians—and welcomes any and all like-minded souls. Started in Los Angeles and based on the knowledge that strong, interesting and intelligent women are more powerful as a group, the club has begun to expand internationally. It now has chapters in New York, Mexico City, London and Hong Kong. All new members must be invited in person or, if distance prevents this, verbally, as connection and conversation are key to the club’s purpose. The only requirement for joining is a generous, collaborative spirit and a willingness to support other women. – Charlotte Druckman, The New York Times

The New York Times T Magazine

“The week before last, the Los Angeles-based artist Zoe Crosher emailed a number of her female friends in the art and food worlds: “Please join us for the inaugural New York City meeting of The Fainting Club.”…This latest dinner party, which took place last Thursday, was her first step to expand the organization outside of California.”

Crosher teamed up with her pal Julia Sherman, a Brooklyn-based artist who started the special-interest culinary blog Salad for President and is known for her Salad Garden on the roof of the MoMA PS1 museum, to host the East Coast event. At Sherman’s Clinton Hill apartment, though, she alone welcomed their guests — a group of 16 women, many of whom didn’t know each other (let alone the hosts) — with a round of cranberry shiso-jalapeño cocktails. Due to an injury, Crosher was unable to fly out for the event, which went off without a hitch anyway.
