The 'Sauce de France' 5 Course Supper Club in Hackney

Chef Nick Stuart is on a mission to make London excited about French food again, and to do this he's holding a supper club on Thursday 17th October at Second Home in Hackney, showcasing a 5 course menu with the focus on French sauces.  Tickets are just £45 for the five courses, and Nick is also selling wine at £10-£15 on the night.  Sounds magnifique!

I'm Nick, I'm a chef and I'd like to invite you to the SAUCE DE FRANCE.
What's the premise of the event? Well, I feel French food currently has an unfairly poor rep. With it being trendy to say, 'French food is rich, stuck in the past and hasn't modernised' without any real qualification. Je dis non, non, non! French food is the best and we're going to celebrate this.
There will be 5 courses with the sauce as its focus each coming with a delicious side (I thought it would be fun to do it this way!). And the riders you'll be rooting for are: POULET JUS, BEURRE BLANC, BISQUE, CRÈME AU FROMAGE and CARAMEL. Along with a support team including crispy chicken thigh, cured salmon, duck liver parfait, cheese tartlet and tarte-tatin.
I've worked at some great restaurants in London (Hix, Marcus and currently Perilla) and also spent the last year in France, working in the mountains for winter, beautiful private houses in the South during summer and a 3 month stint at a Michelin starred restaurant in Paris. Now I'm back I'm keen to share my experiences with a meal to remember.
Before I forget...THE WINE. Don't worry there will be wine. I've 'sauced' some great bottles from The Somerset Wine Company and they will be available on the night for around £10-15."

When - Thurs 17th October 2019

Where - Second Home, 125–127 Mare St, E8 3SJ

Talya's Memories of Crete Supper Club in Hackney

Talya Coen is holding a new supper club, 'Memories of Crete' at the Hackney Coffee Company in Hackney Road on Sunday 20th October.  She lived in Crete for a year, and this supper club is a tribute the that, and the recipes she learnt when she was there.  Tickets are just £45, and the venue is stunning - should be a wonderful night!

"Following several stunningly well received supper clubs, Talya’s upcoming ‘Memories of Crete’ supper club will celebrate the delicious food of this beautiful Greek island.
This supper club is a tribute to Talya’s year of living, foraging and learning the culinary secrets of Greeks mamas and grandmas in a charming mountain village in Crete. She was inspired by the locals’ dedication to tradition and their connection to the land and its culinary treasures.

So join us on the 20th October for a feast worthy of Greek Gods!"

fodder's 6 Month Residency at The Shrub & Shutter in Brixton

.fodder, a pop-up from Michael Thompson, Jenny Novitzy and Louise Stapley, has been on hiatus for a few months, but is making a big return with a new six month residency at The Shrub & Shutter bar in Coldharbour Lane, Brixton.  Serving from Wednesday to Saturday evenings until the end of March 2019, fodder specialises in locally sourced seasonal produce, and will have a mix of snacks, sharing plates, showcasing their creativity and craft.  Go!

"It's been quite some time since we announced one of these, but we're excited to tell you all that we're taking over the kitchen at the Shrub and Shutter for a six-month residency starting Wednesday 9th October.
Opened in September 2014 (happy birthday, guys!) by cocktail consultants Chris Edwards and Dave Tregenza, the Shrub and Shutter is one of Brixton's hidden gems, nestled behind the market on Coldharbour Lane. With a bar in the front and cosy restaurant in the back, it serves up innovative cocktails around a hip hop-themed menu laid out like a Spotify playlist, and hosts a rotating roster of kitchen residencies to feed its drinkers. 
They stand for everything we love: good tunes, good times, and good booze, and we're so excited to bring some good food into the mix too. 
To work with the chilled-out vibes of the venue, we'll have an offering of bits, bites and plates all designed for sharing with friends over a few drinks."
