Last weekend, I had a fabulous time attending Rosie’s (of A Little Lusciousness) supper club. I’ve been to a Grub Club pop-up before (you can read my review of the Nina St Tropez one here) which I very much enjoyed, and after having discovered Rosie’s super blog, I was very keen to try out hers. I took my Mum along with me, and we both agreed we had a marvellous time.
On arrival, Rosie greeted us with a deliciously sparkling blood orange cocktail, and soon we were chatting to other guests attending the dinner. We were seated at a long table set up in Rosie’s living room (it’s always so fun to go to a meal in someone’s house!), and soon began the serious business of enjoying the food!
To start, we were served a beetroot, blood orange and fennel salad with seared mackerel and horseradish cream, along with some some absolutely delicious wholemeal cranberry bread.
Next, slow roast wild boar shoulder with a celeriac puree (absolutely mouth-watering), warm winter vegetables, pink pickled onions and cider and apple gravy.
All the food was incredibly well-cooked and very tasty, but my very favourite course was the amazing dessert (not a surprise!): a rum-soaked blood orange and almond cake, with an amazing salted caramel sauce and creme fraiche. Rosie mentioned that’s she’s hoping to write a cookbook, and I really hope she does, as I can’t wait to get the recipe for this delicious cake.
By this point, I was so full I didn’t think I could manage another bite, but when I saw the amazing cheeseboard, I managed a nibble of Delice de Bourgogne and Ogleshield (a Somerset version of Raclette, apparently, which was incredible. I want to track some down for myself!).
Mum and I both had such a fun time at this supper club. With the menu priced at £35, our meal was terrific value, and the great atmosphere really added to our dining experience. Rosie is such a sweet person and was a fantastic host, and it was fun to sit with everyone at the same table. I got to chat to some lovely people; it was a really interesting mix, but everyone was so charming, and we all shared a common love of food and quirky London restaurants to unite us.
Have you ever been to a supper club before? Is there a particular one you’d recommend? If you’re interested in trying one out, I’d definitely recommend Rosie’s as a great starting point!
