Places for the July supperclub have all gone! I have also just finalised the menu for this Sunday 21 July as follows:
FEAST OF ENGLISH SUMMER
21 July 2013
Home Smoked Mini Scotch Egg with Mushroom
Tomato Sorbet on Tomato and a Garlic Tuile
English Garden Pea Soup with Homemade Bread
Twice Cooked Pork Belly – or – Herb crusted Goats Cheese
served with thyme lentils and honey roasted beetroot
August Supperclub Mexican Taster
Meringue with Minted Mixed Berries, Praline Cream and Chocolate Sauce
Smoked Chocolate Truffle, White Chocolate Gin Truffle and Salt Raisin Fudge
It’s been a long time coming, and now it’s nearly here! I’m finally launching my South London monthly supperclub night this July!
Home from Home is the name of a new monthly supperclub which focuses on a different theme every month. The focus is on the experience and everything that makes up a great evening out so that means good food (whether you’re vegetarian or not) comprised of interesting dishes which should be, where possible, seasonal and local. It’s also all about providing this food in a friendly environment and embracing the “home” aspect of a supperclub. The key difference between eating out at a restaurant and eating with me is that the vibe should be comfortable and friendly. People can mix and meet different people around London, and have a chance to chat over wine (BYO) with new acquaintances.
This is something that I have been working on for a long time, and I am incredibly excited about it. At the risk of hype, I think it’s going to be quite good (I certainly won’t let it be otherwise in respect of the menu although there’s a little diner participation involved regarding the conversation :-)).
If you are into dining experiences in a social environment, then Home from Home will, I hope, become a second home (albeit once a month). If you haven’t done anything like this before, then now’s your chance – it really is a brilliant way to spend an evening, different from the usual activities with friends.
The donation of £20 requested for the first night launch is exceptional (and limited) so I hope to see you there.
All the best
Hosted by Home from Home
July Theme: A Feast of English Summer
It’s the supperclub’s first ever event so we’re keeping it intimate with just 10 spaces available and a maximum allocation of three tickets per person! There is a suggested donation £20 and BYO (I’m more than happy to give suggestions for those that care about what wine to pair up the food with).
Venue is in Clapham on Sunday 21July from 7pm to 10pm (dessert should be served around 9.15pm). Diners are seated around a large table so you should be comfortable, happy even, to chat and meet new people.

Twice cooked pork belly served with lentils and a onion & apple puree or Roasted beetroot and thyme infused lentils topped with a herb crusted goats cheese round (veg)
