I'm back!

Greetings all

My next supper club is at the end of the month and will feature traditional Pakistani dishes from my family plus one or two Nepali and Indian inspired curries from my recent travels in S.E Asia!

I've just finished writing the menu and I can't wait for you to taste what I have in store for you.

Dishes include Ajwain Pakora, Jeera lemonade, my classic chana dahl and masala pyaaz.

Plus guests will receive a free welcome chai martini!

The suggested donation for the meal is £30. There'll be six dishes plus extra chutney, naan and a couple of drinks. You will not leave hungry!

Members of my mailing list have booked a few places already so there is just room for four more guests.

Email quickly if you are interested, the left sidebar has my email address.

Best wishes

Komal!

Regather eating seasonally #3

Here are a few pics from the eating seasonally vegetarian supper I did at regather a couple of months ago. I collaborated with local growers to produce a original and wholesome menu from the vast choice of organic vegetables provided to me. Guests enjoyed okinomiyaki (a japanese cabbage pancake), pumpkin pie and more plus a guest biscuit company provided after dinner treats - I Heart Bikkies- also gave a talk at the end along with a quick one from me and a local grower too. Plus there were almost 30 guests, the biggest one yet!

Eating seasonally at regather #2

A few pics from the eating seasonally dinner at regather. This one was the largest I've catered for yet with 26 guests! The menu focussed on local and seasonal vegetables. I collaborated with farms and organic vegetable suppliers for a delicious summer menu. I also had access to a beautiful sorbet and ice cream machine so produced four fruit sorbets to cleanse the guests palette between their four courses. One of the guests even brought some dried crispy insects in as an extra experience, I tried a cricket, tasted of crisp.
I had a lovely bunch of people helping me and the guests made really heart-warming comments. Keep checking back for details of the next event.























Also a short film was made about the event here

Pop up restaurant at Regather to celebrate vegetarian week - pictures!














Last night was amazing! Everything went smoothly and everyone enjoyed the food. The menu can be seen in the previous post. The kitchen is massive and the staff are so lovely. I made some new friends! Keep an eye out for future dates with regather. We're planning an outdoor one in a couple of months on the grass with a projector showing art and films! More people will be at the next one too, we're aiming for 35-40. Good job I love a challenge!
