I have lots of exciting news for you this month, but first things first, I hope to tempt you with the next supper club menu, to be held on Saturday 11th June – less than three weeks away!
  • Spinach & courgette salad, griddled halloumi, date & lemon dressing
  • Indonesian seafood curry, green bean & coconut salad, spiced aubergine & tamarind rice
  • Strawberry frangipane tart with homemade strawberry ice cream

As always, the evening starts at 7.30 with an aperitif and nibbles. We serve the meal followed by coffee and petits fours, all for £27.50. Come alone or with a group of friends, everyone is welcome. Please email me to book your place, I still have some spaces left.

A couple of months ago Mr Supper Table and I dined at Rick Stein’s new restaurant in Winchester, where I had the best meal in ages. My main course was Indonesian seafood curry, absolutely delicious, and I thought it would be great to recreate it for my supper club guests. We are also entering a great time for an abundance of fruit and vegetables, even strawberries, so I have chosen a suitably fruity dessert to get us in the mood for summer.

The May supper club was a great success with the all veggie menu. Although I did slightly regret my decision to make homemade pasta on my 103rd basil & lemon raviolo! Although it sounds a slightly odd dessert, the carrot and white chocolate dessert was also a hit – no photos I’m afraid, it was eaten too quickly!


Afternoon Tea with Pollyanna

I’ve recently been asked to make afternoon tea for a few customers, and I have teamed up with Pollyanna’s Party Hire as she has some beautiful crockery to serve the sandwiches, scones and cakes on. Please take a look at our afternoon tea menu on my website. Prices start at £15 per person, including crockery hire.


The Brewers Arms, West Malvern

Those of you with eagle eyes may have spotted my name in the Malvern Gazette last Friday! Alison, the new landlady of the Brewers Arms, is a previous supper club guest and, as an admirer of my cooking, has asked me to set up the pub kitchen for her. She opened for drinks last Friday so please pop in and see her, and currently you will find my cakes on the counter – perfect after a walk on the Malvern Hills. She has some wonderful ideas and I’m sure the Brewers will once again be the heart of the community.

We hope to be serving food daily from June 6th, and will be hosting a weekly curry night on Wednesdays, as well as a monthly supper club in the bizarrely named “Armpit” – if anyone knows the origin of this name, feel free to explain! Both of us are very keen on using local seasonal ingredients, so I’m currently busy organising supplies from Herefordshire & Worcestershire. The menu will have some pub classics, but we are also planning on adding lots of lovely fresh vegetables and salads.

Upcoming dates

I will be hosting a stall at the Great Malvern Food Festival this Bank Holiday Monday, and you will find me in the Abbey grounds. I will be selling lots of lovely chutneys and jams, as well as my macarons and marshmallows. If you get there early enough, there will be some tasters to try too – last year, we ran out by lunchtime, we were so busy!
