ShareEast Supper Club at East Village

What ShareEast Supper Club I remember watching the Olympic Park develop from my neighbouring home in East London. I was lucky enough to bag tickets to the event too. After all the excitement of the games, London was left to wonder what lay in store. After years of post-games development, the space has been transformed into 67 acres of breathtaking park land with a newly developed community on the doorstep. East Village, set in the former Olympic Village, is London’s newest neighbourhood. Fast becoming a hot spot for food and wine enthusiasts, it welcomes a string of restaurants this spring, including Neapolitan pizzeria Firezza and Dalston favourite coffee and cocktail joint Tina, We Salute You. East Village going one step further to inject a community feel by launching a unique scheme, aptly named ShareEast, which encourages neighbours to participate in a monthly supper club – ‘Come Dine With Me’ style. The host for the evening will have the chance to show off their culinary skills while ShareEast covers the cost of the ingredients. All guests …

A Meaty Supper Club, by Meat Porter

What Meat Porter Supper Club at London City Island by Ballymore Experience Meat Porter is an online artisan butchers which sources and delivers great quality cuts of free-range British farmed meat to your door. It’s been done before but I have found most of these services expensive and inconvenient, with impractical minimum orders; but the ethos behind Meat Porter is much simpler. Founder Stefan Porter uses the same farmers who supply high quality meat to some of Britain’s best restaurants so that you can have a fine dining experience at home for a price that roughly equates to shopping at Tesco’s Finest or Waitrose. Minimum orders are £25, they deliver to pretty much anywhere in the UK for free and if you order before 3pm you will get it the next day. You can have it delivered to work and the meat keeps cool in the box for up to 30 hours. Sounds easy! Each box comes with some simple recipes based on the premise that the best meat requires only minimal seasoning and the …

Supper Club at The House of Peroni

You may remember reading about my trip to The House of Peroni over the summer? After thoroughly enjoying innovative cocktails made with Peroni and small plates devised by Michelin Star holding Costardi Brothers, I was very pleased to be asked back to the November stint, which was held in the same grand central London townhouse. The House of Peroni was open to showcase the new wave of Italian style and creativity. The space, designed by award-winning architect and co-designer of the Enzi Ferrari museum, Andrea Margate, was a place where guests could discover fashion installations, a luxurious cinema space, a restaurant and a soundtrack developed by 25 exciting young Italian producers and DJs. I was there to try the Italian Supperclub, which would showcase old and new Italy with a four course menu. We enjoyed classic and modern takes on Burrito, Nduja and Herring Eggs, Casio E Pope (black pepper pasta), Rana Pescatrice Alla Sicilian and Polenta Cake. These traditional dishes are right up my street and it was interesting to see these along with …

MI1020 – Dining with Nokia Lumia 1020 and Windows Phone

A couple of weeks ago I was invited to the Microsoft house in Mayfair and provided with the new Nokia Lumia 1020 and Windows Surface 2 tablet. I will be writing a post about the devices in the New Year but alongside this I was also invited to MI1020, a clandestine culinary adventure created by Gingerline in partnership with the Nokia Lumia 1020 and Windows Phone. All ‘agents’ were asked to use their super-sleuth skills and the Nokia Lumia 1020’s 41mega-pixel camera to discover an evening of high-end food, art and performance. As an agent I have been sworn to secrecy but what I can say is you should check it out for yourselves. There are a limited number of places available for Saturday 14 and application closes at 23:59 today so be quick. To be in with a chance to attend this free spy themed event, daring diners should register their interest at http://www.gingerline.co.uk/MI1020 Good luck!

Kitchen Parties – Rack & Ruin Review

As the sun set over London last night, Lucy and I approached a large Victorian corner building with black painted windows. We were to spend the evening at Kitchen Parties, an immersive dining, drinking and entertainment concept. We entered into The Fourth Wall, the cocktail bar area, and sipped on a delicious lychee cocktail while we waited to be called to the table. The restaurant we chose to dine at was Rack & Ruin and we were to enjoy a ‘hearty three course banquet of delicious medieval style preserves and meats cooked on an open grill’. When we eventually made it into the dining room, we were seated at a long banqueting table and told to visit ‘Peter’ with our wooden board (plate) so that he could carve us some meat. We could see the large open grill in front of us, which was adorned with huge chunks of barbecued meat, cooking away right in front of our eyes. Our visit to Peter was surreal. A shady character, Peter pulled pieces of meat from the …
