Corn on the Cob: Our Favourite Way

By | Supper Club | No Comments

Corn on the cob; the summery-est of foods, with it’s bright golden hue. There is something about sweetcorn and warm days that sits just right. We’ve eaten countless cobs of corn this summer, here’s our favourite way:

Pull the leaves from the corn cobs and put them under a pre-heated grill. Keep an eye on them and turn regularly until they are deeply golden all over, about 10 minutes.

Add a couple of tablespoons of oil and two cloves of finely chopped garlic to a saucepan and wam gently until the garlic just starts to colour.

When the corn is golden and tender remove it to a large plate. Brush the garlic oil all over and sprinkle with chopped basil leaves and grated parmesan. Enjoy straight away.

Five Mile Feast

By | Supper Club | No Comments

So we set ourselves a challenge for the last supper club; could we source all of the ingredients for our entire menu from within 5 miles of our supper club in Hove?

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 more importantly the generosity and kindness of people.

Businesses and locals came to us with suggestions and offers; a bag full of herbs from The Herb Kitchen, dark chocolate from Audrey’s, rosemary lemonade from the Old Tree Co-op, and pears from a friends garden. The menu was bursting with local, lovingly sourced and delicious ingredients.

And our supper clubbers on the night were fabulous – why are we still surprised?! It’s the sole reason we do the supper clubs, to meet the people in our community. This time we had coffee shop managers, the obligatory designer, a school teacher, a physio, a musician – the stories, laughs and hugs at the end of the night make running a supper club truly special. So a massive thank you as always to our guests, you were wonderful and it’s beautiful bumping into you on the streets now.

The Simple Things

By | Supper Club | No Comments

We love collaborating with companies and brands who share our philosophy of slowing down and enjoying what you have; as The Simple Things magazine puts it, ‘taking time to live well’. So we couldn’t have been happier to co-host a supper club with them as part of #supperclubsaturday, welcoming editor Lisa and a group of the magazines subscribers to share a meal with us. Our menu was inspired by the delicious springtime produce including spring-vegetable crudité, risotto with buttered asparagus, Prosecco berry jelly and caramel hazelnut tarts.

Thank you to The Simple Things sponsor Neptune for providing us with a surprise host pack containing the most beautiful crockery, glassware and linen for our supper clubs. We were blown away by their products and thrilled to be part of this event.

Italian Supper Club Hove

Italian Feast

With hints of summer popping up we tempted in more sunshine by hosting a Venetian-inspired evening. A reception of Bellinis and olives welcomed our guests and over a sharing board filled with crostini, garlic and chilli prawns, arancini and Caprese tomatoes (and a few more Bellinis) we enjoyed laughs and stories as we settled into the night. Each group of supper clubbers bring something totally fresh and unexpected and this evening was no different – we were spoilt with incredible creative minds, style icons, barber fashionistas and bearded beauties.

Photoshoot with Emma Gutteridge

By | Supper Club | No Comments

So many opportunities have opened up to us since starting our supper club, but the most exciting was being approached by Emma Gutteridge who wanted to document our supper club. We’ve been a fan of Emma’s photography for a long time having seen it in some of our favourite magazines, blogs and websites.

Emma captured our whole process from planning to sourcing our ingredients, prepping, cooking and hosting one of our supper clubs. We had so much fun during the three day shoot and we couldn’t be happier with the beautiful photos that you see on our website and instagram.

We can’t recommend Emma enough if you’re looking to have some photos taken. She is creative, inspiring and so much fun to work with that you’ll forget that you were ever feeling nervous about being in front of the camera.

2016 Resolutions

By | Supper Club | No Comments

2016 started off with a bang for our supper club as we welcomed 12 incredible women for a night that was filled with lots of inspiring chat, laughter, food, music and cocktails. It was great to celebrate and support these creative women who are part of the thriving independent business culture in Brighton. We loved meeting you all and sharing our stories and aims for 2016.

Christmas Supper Club

By | Supper Club | No Comments

Last night we hosted our Christmas Supper Club and it has got us well and truly in the festive spirit. The smell of gently mulled cocktails greeted our guests in from the cold evening and our alternative christmas menu didn’t disappoint; spiced samosas, parma ham wrapped cod with potato galettes and salted caramel pecan pie. The food doesn’t immediately sound Christmassy but it was gently spiced, indulgent and warming, setting us all up for the Christmas period. We had another brilliant group of supper clubbers and a really enjoyable, relaxed evening with stories and conversations flowing.

Open Studio. New England House

By | Supper Club | No Comments

We were invited by After Party to be part of their Christmas open studio at New England House, Brighton. We were serving up fruity mulled cider to help get people in the festive spirit and selling packs of salted honey brittle and raw rocky roads for the perfect little Christmas gift. It was great to meet so many people that were interested in our supper clubs and to get such amazing feedback about our food and drink. We look forward to welcoming you to our supper clubs in 2016!

One Supper Club. First Servings

By | Supper Club | No Comments

It was a privilege to host our first group of supper clubbers last Friday. Six amazing people joined us for a night that eclipsed everything we thought it might have been. After everyone had tackled the elements to get here, we served up elderflower gin and tonics and a warming spiced Pear Flip both made with the delicious local Brighton Gin. We tucked in to some crispy quinoa fritters followed by a slow-cooked tagine; the perfect antidote to the cold autumnal night. With stories and laughs being enjoyed under the cafe lights, the dark chocolate brownies, orange sorbet and coffees were devoured.. so much for the 7-11 timings!
