Victorian Supper Club by Chef Sophie Downer24 January from 7 pm
Wednesday 24 January from 7 pm
Three courses including a complimentary cocktail on arrival and 10% discount as new year promotion.
Sophie is back and she is going to prepare something a bit different but succulent as always: a menu from the Victorian times with their harvest and game season.
We chose this particular theme because it really suits Sophie's skills and the passion for homemade, earthy dishes using fresh vegetables and herbs often grown in her allotment.
As John Ruskin said: "To be a good cook means the knowledge of all fruits, herbs, balms and spices, and of all that is healing and meet in fields and grove, savory in meat. It means carefulness, inventiveness, watchfulness, willingness and readiness of appliance. It means the economy of your great-grandmother and the science of modern chemists; it means much tasting and no wasting; it means English thoroughness, French art and Arabian hospitality; it means in fine that you are to be perfectly and always ladies, and that you are to see that everybody has something nice to eat."
As usual, there will be a wine pairing with three different wines carefully chosen according with the style and the preferences of people in the Victorian era.
Gin & Tonic with rose and cucumber on arrival.
Homemade sourdough bread and butter on the table
