The Battle of Manor Vs Food!

‘We’re Dan and Susie and we’ve done nearly every job in our supperclub biz…’

and yes we’ve come over all Adam Richman for the weekend as part of our eagerly awaited Manor Vs Food event!

We love Man Vs Food and can often be found salivating over our TV at the images of huge greasy burgers, smoky ribs and melted cheese..well, melted cheese on pretty much everything! So what better theme for a supperclub – huge portions and lots of spice!

Dinner at the Manor - Manor Vs Food

We didn’t focus on a specific recipe book for this event, however we did look to Jamie Oliver’s ‘America’ for some inspiration as it’s a good beginners compendium to regional American food, including BBQ.

Scran and Scallie

I have a bit of an obsession with Edinburgh. It’s my top city break destination in the UK, above even London. The mixt of elegant and majestic architecture paired with breath taking natural scenery, chilled out scots and a vibrant food and drink scene make it my undoubted second home. I like to pop up on the East Coast mainline a few times a year. Since the discovery of Gardeners Cottage last year I’ve been looking for a new venue to take the mantle of best new eatery in the Burgh. This comes in the shape of the Scran and Scallie, a pub with restaurant, which is the newest addition to the Stockbridge foodie scene.

After an overwhelming response, our events have all sold out. Keep your eyes peeled for 2014 dates later in the year.

Friday 11th & Saturday 12th October – Our 2nd Birthday – Both events Sold Out

Saturday 9th November – Bonfire Afternoon Tea – Sold Out
Any excuse to get the vintage china out! Due to the success of our last afternoon tea, we’ll be bringing some wintry, warming touches to the Manor for a cosy afternoon tea.

To get us into the mood for our Christmas trip to Copenhagen, we’ll be bringing a Scandinavian Feast to the Manor to see in the festive season!

Saturday 25th January – Peruvian Cuisine, inspired by Ceviche – Sold Out
As traditional with us at the Manor, we’ll be bringing sunnier climes to Leeds in the depths of winter! This time from South America, Peru to be exact. Will there be guinea pigs? Who knows!

Spaces are limited so please book on if anything takes your fancy! For those who do book on, we’re looking forward to welcoming you to the Manor already!

Peruvian Cuisine inspired by Ceviche

Saturday 25th January 2014 –  Sorry, we’re sold out

We love keeping up with the latest food fashions and at the moment it seems to be the cuisine of South America that is getting stronger and stronger in the UK. The latest addition is Ceviche, a Peruvian restaurant based in Soho and with an accompanying cookbook. We get excited by all the fresh and zingy flavours and so are looking forward to show casing some of these recipes to help you beat the January blues.

Peruvian food is a complex one, very fish orientated because of the coastline, but also influenced by Chinese, Japanese and African immigrants – all the best foods in one! We may even cook a guinea pig if we can get our hands on one (just kidding, or are we!? 🙂 )

Tickets cost £30 and this gets you a welcome drink on arrival and our standard 6 courses. For our booking terms and conditions please click here.  Sorry, we’re sold out

Scandi Christmas!

Saturday 7th December 2013 – Sorry, we’re sold out

It’s no secret that this year the Manor crew are off to Scandinavia for Christmas and so to get us in the mood we’re planning a Scandi themed Christmas supperclub. We’ll be using the book released last year by Trine Hahnemann, which is none other than the book that Nigella recommended to us when we met her!

Guests should expect some slightly unusual Christmas treats, courtesy of Northern Europe. Plus we think that the Manor is best suited to the festive period and we’re excited to be getting the lovely tree out again!

Tickets cost £30 each and get you a welcome drink and 6 delicious courses of festive fodder. For our booking terms and conditions please click here.
