Eat the Olympics Supper Club
28 July – 11 August
London, W10 (venue to be revealed on purchase of ticket)
In January 2012 we (Jack Hemingway and Sarah Kemp) embarked on an Olympic culinary challenge – to eat a dish from every single country taking part in the London 2012 games.
We were quick out of the blocks, completing thirty dishes in the first two weeks but this is a marathon not a sprint and in recent times we have been somewhat off the pace. The recent purchase of our Queens Park flat slowed things down and it now sits empty while we await planning permission.
With the help of our crafty fingered friends and family we have transformed the space into our very own Olympic themed pop-up restaurant. Now we need your help to make it over the final hurdle before the summer is out and Olympic Games have left town.
Over three weekends during the London 2012 Olympic Games, we invite you to join us at our Eat the Olympic Supper Club where will host six events each covering a different continent. We will be cooking a starter, main course and desert with a cheeky cocktail on arrival each from four different countries within the chosen continent.
It wouldn’t be an Olympic themed supper club without an element of competition so diners are encouraged (but not obliged) to join the fun and contribute to the evening’s entertainment by supplying a home cooked appetiser to accompany the three course meal. Not only will contributors save £10 from the suggested donation but also be in the running to take home the gold medal as fellow diners sample the culinary creations before votes are cast and medals awarded.
At the end of the evening diners will also get to decide the fate of each dish cooked by Jack and Sarah by choosing to award it Gold, Silver, Bronze or the dreaded disqualified based on their enjoyment of the meal.

West Indies – Saturday 28th July 7pm
South America – Sunday 29th July 2pm
