Five Mile Feast Supper Club
We were back at Andy’s gallery on Saturday for one of our famous Five Mile Feast Supper Clubs – a truly community-minded feast; three courses of delicious seasonal produce.
Not long after starting our supper club in 2015, we decided to host our first Five Mile Feast with the desire of supporting our amazing local producers. When we first sat down to plan the menu the task seemed very daunting, but we soon learnt that we had only scratched the surface of all the great local producers, suppliers and the generosity and kindness of people in our community.
This Five Mile Feast menu included little tartines with freshly podded peas, roasted radishes, pickled red onions and the creamiest, dreamiest local cheese from High Weald Dairy. Then there was a heritage tomato tarte tatin (tomatoes slowly cooked for 6 hours before being layered with onion marmalade and all butter puff pastry, and finally a baked strawberry cheesecake with delicious gelato from Gusto Gelato.
Our suppliers included The Sussex Peasant, High Weald Dairy, Gusto Gelato, the brilliant Knob Butter, a huge branch of rosemary from The Herb Kitchen, chocolate from Audrey’s, dinks from the Old Tree Co-op and Madame Jennifers Gin (distilled in Hove) as well as fruit and herbs from friends gardens.
And our supper clubbers on the night were fabulous – why are we still surprised?! It’s the sole reason we run our supper clubs; to meet the people in our community. So a massive thank you as always to our guests, you were wonderful and it’s beautiful bumping in to you on the streets now.
Liz from Flower and Fern took on the five-mile challenge for her floral arrangements and foraged cow parsley, silver lace vine and mock orange which looked beautiful and smelt amazing.
