I love to travel, and love the flavours of the Middle East. So at one of the recent supper clubs I floated the idea for this menu and everyone was on board with it.
The flavours from this part of the world range from fragrant citrus, rich meat dishes, fresh and heathly salads, and sweet spiced desserts.
The idea of a supper club is really simple. Everyone eats the same 3 courses at a communal table. It provides the chance to enjoy good food and great craic with new people in a relaxed atmosphere, (normally no more than 8 people). Sometimes it’s good to shake things up and socialise with people you wouldn’t normally meet. We greet everyone with a welcome drink, and we’re BYO. Someone asked me recently if you need to subscribe, and the answer is no. If you like the sound of one the supper clubs, then you just book you place/s.
25 April Supper Club
Middle Eastern Menu
The menu for the 25th April will be,
Starter – Haloumi, Orange, and Roast Hazelnut Salad
Main – Slow Cooked Middle Eastern Lamb, (Vegetarian Option – Baked Falafel with Yoghurt), Jewelled Rice, Tabbouleh Salad
Dessert – Persian Love Cake, (flavoured with rose water and pistachio, traditionally baked by Persian women for the men who caught their eye), Greek Yoghurt or Ice Cream
*If you’re vegan, that’s no problem. Just let us know in advance so we can make something delicious for you.
I couldn’t decide between menus for the next supper club, so I put it to a vote on Facebook. For a week or two the French menu had a strong lead, but got pipped at the post by the Italian menu. So thanks to everyone who voted.
February’s supper club sold out weeks in advance so remember to book early.
The menu for the 21st March will be
Starter – Gnocchi with Hazelnut Pesto
Main – Chicken Marsala, (Vegetarian Option-Aubergine Parmesan), Italian Salad, Homemade Italian Bread
Dessert – Tiramisu
The ethos behind the Supper Club is simple. Everyone eats the same menu at a communal table, with the chance to meet new people, chat and enjoy a bit of craic.
We greet everyone with a welcome drink in front of an open fire and you’ll enjoy 3 courses for only £25 (with a little treat or two). We’re also BYO.
Well, the February supper club has come and gone and we had a ball.
Coming to a strange house to sit down and eat with people you haven’t met before is the stuff of nightmares for some people. However, if you’re brave enough to try something new you’ll enjoy good food and meet some lovely people.
I was really bad, and forgot to take more photos, but to be honest the craic was good and I was enjoying myself too much. We had a fantastic group of guests, conversation was brilliant and among other things some surprising celebrity gossip was shared.
A massive thank you to everyone who joined us. If this sounds like your type of thing give us a try. The next supper club is on 21 March.
