Chilli and Spice and All Things Nice!

We fancied a bit of Spice this Christmas and so for our recent festive themed supperclub we turned to Thomasina Miers’ ‘Chilli Notes’ – a lovely homage to everyone’s favourite capsicum. Using this book as our guide for a menu, we cooked up treats that showcased not just chilli heat but the fruity aromatics too.

SOLD OUT

To celebrate our third birthday we’re using two of our favourite things to help us celebrate. Your ticket price will include several delicious beers paired to your canapes, starter and main course, hand selected by us from one of our favourite breweries, which has been confirmed as…Brewdog! Strong ales with flavour and bite! We’re really looking forward to pairing these beers to our food.

The food will all have a street foodie ,meaty theme from ribs, burgers, slow cooked treats – perhaps we’ll even get our smoker back out?! Unfortunately this is probably not one for the veggies, we promise to make it up to you in the new year when we’ve got the new Ottolenghi book! Tickets will be £40pp and include paired beers plus a few extra Manor treats!

Saturday 8th November 2014 – Autumnal Afternoon Tea

We love the changing of the seasons and what better way to celebrate Autumn than an infamous Manor Afternoon tea. We can guarantee that our sweets and savouries will be crammed full of comforting, warming treats and surprises. You won’t leave hungry! Tickets will be £20pp and include a welcome cocktail on arrival.

Saturday 6th December 2014 – A Chilli Christmas
SOLD OUT

Our favourite time of year! To date we’ve celebrated Christmas in style with Delia, Nigella, Scandilicious and now it’s the turn of Thomasina Miers. Using her ‘Chilli Notes’ book as inspiration, we’ll be spiking festive treats with our favourite capsicum. If you fancy a bit of heat to warm up on the chilly winter nights, then why not join us?! Tickets will be £33 each and include a welcome cocktail on arrival.

We hope you can join us! Please remember to look at our T&Cs before booking

Mexican Fiesta at the Manor

The past weekend saw the return of Mexican flavours at the Manor – it may have been chilly outside, but we brought some much needed warmth, spice and sunshine! We didn’t quite get through a hundred limes, maybe around fifteen, but we did use thirty six eggs, thirty eight passionfruits and made over fifty tortillas! Hard work, but worth it! As soon as we held our last Mexican event in 2012, we were keen to make a return. This time we used Thomasina Miers’ second Mexican book, Wahaca – Mexican Food at Home, another book that has been a favourite of ours in 2012, which we both cook from regularly as unfortunately there are no Wahaca restaurants north of the M25 – Boo! Fresh, punchy flavours were the order of the day and our lively guests, some returning diners, some new to supperclubs as a whole, seemed to love them too!

January Menu, Wahaca – Mexican Food at Home

Yes, we’re all stuffed from the copious amounts of food and booze of December but what better way to welcome January 2013 at the Manor but with more food and drink!

We’re bringing tastes and flavours from sunnier climes next month, using Thomasina Miers’ second Mexican cookbook, Wahaca – Mexican food at home.

Dan and I have scoured the recipes and have created a menu which will get our guests’ tastebuds tingling! I can feel the spice already!

Enjoy!
