This weekend we’ll be hosting a special supper club NOT at the Manor, inspired by all things Scandinavian. We’re massive Scandiphiles and any excuse for us to bake up some fika treats and create a a little but of hygge tygge (Motherland fans!) for our guests.
Expect a mash of traditional Scandi flavours in and amongst some modern twists. Our guests are in for a treat!
In just over a week we’ll be cooking up a vegetarian feast, inspired by one of our favourite writers and Supperclub queen Sabrina Ghayour, for our guests as part of our fundraiser for Leeds based charity, Zest.
Zest support people living in disadvantaged areas of Leeds. They’re the charity behind Leeds Cookery School and Jamie’s Ministry of Food and aim to improve life chances by promoting healthier lifestyles and enabling fulfilling lives.
We’ll be taking this event out of the Manor this time too, and will be popping up at a secret location in north Leeds!
At the weekend we’ll be hosting what seems to be the first afternoon tea we’ve hosted in a long time!
This event will be inspired by Yotam Ottolenghi and Helen Goh’s beautiful book Sweet and we’re very much going all out sweet for this one, serving up a delectable selection of seven sweet delights (plus some very tasty savouries to boot).
This is one event we’ve really been looking forward to and we struggled to keep the sweet bakes to just seven items! So, here’s the menu. We’d love to know what you think.
When we had the crazy idea to start up a supperclub back in 2011, we didn’t know how long we’d do this for or if anyone would want to come! Untrained, home cooks inviting strangers to share an evening of food and drink? Scary stuff.
However, we needn’t have worried and 6 years later we’re still going strong, went on a huge learning curve, made loads of improvements and we’re the longest running supperclub in Leeds. Wow! We’ve had around a thousand guests round our table which is quite overwhelming, but hopefully we’re doing something right.
At the weekend we’re celebrating our 6th birthday and using one of our favourite books / restaurants / chefs as our muse, Selin Kiazim. We’ll be cooking up an array of Turkish-Cypriot delights across a number of small plates.
