We had a lovely evening last Saturday for the first supper club since I finished chef school, and I’m pleased to say it was a great success. The weather cleared up just in time for an Elderflower Bellini in the garden, before sitting down for dinner. We had a great bunch of people – some new to supper club, and some returning guests. Thankfully I passed the before and after (chef school) test with flying colours, according to the regulars!
I am now planning the next supper club on Saturday 23rd August, and here is the menu. Some spaces have already gone, so please contact me soon to reserve your seat.
- Roasted red onion, Taleggio & thyme ravioli with pine nuts and balsamic pearls
- Pesto-stuffed plaice, beetroot rösti, green beans, marinated courgette, white grape & basil sauce
- Elderflower & brambleberry pavlova with raspberry coulis
As usual we will start the evening with a complimentary drink and canapé
s. I came across a recipe from one of my favourite food writers Diana Henry for vin de pêches
, a peach-based aperitif made with wine and vodka – how could I resist? I enjoy making these fruit-based drinks, and the pavlova will contain my own elderflower cordial. I made the cordial while still living in Devon, where I was delighted to discover elderflower in the back garden – can’t get much more local than your own house!
I seem to have gone rather Italian with the starter and main – inspired by my forthcoming honeymoon to Italy I think. Less than two months to go until we can stuff ourselves silly with pizza and pasta on the Amalfi coast. My mum bought me a pasta maker for my birthday this year, so I will be making homemade ravioli for its first supper club outing.
The evening costs £27.50 per person, and we will finish off with coffee and homemade petit fours. Don’t forget to bring a bottle!
Hope to see you all soon at supper club!
