French Laundrette Pop-up Supper Club at The Chancery London

On hearing the news that The French Laundry is holding a pop-up in Harrods, at £250 a head, Sabrina Ghayour decided to launch a French Laundrette supper club for one night, at 1% of the cost.

"“The idea is that I will charge diners 1 percent of the cost of Thomas Keller’s pop-up and deliver a carefully created four course menu with a very humble price tag of just £2.50 per person, allowing anyone and everyone to be a part of the evening. Within minutes, the news spread like wild fire on Twitter and people were tweeting and emailing, and wanting to take part by either dining, contributing ingredients or cooking on the night - and so it became a reality. The final detail was venue, and Zak Jones of The Chancery London offered his restaurant to me for the event.  Suddenly, paired with our team of willing kitchen and front of house volunteers from Twitter, the French Launderette Supper Club is ready to go.
“The menu will draw inspiration, in parts, from some of Keller’s most famous signature dishes.  More importantly, it will serve four courses of lovingly prepared food to diners using ingredients which will be sourced, donated and generated with help from Twitter and other foodie friends."
