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.
Next weekend we’ll be hosting our final supperclub of 2014! Where does time go? As usual, for our last supperclub of the year we’ll have a festive theme, and this year we’re bringing a bit of spice and heat, using Thomasina Mier’s Chilli Notes as our guide.
Warming, comforting food to bring some festive cheer to December? Yes please!
Fancy coming to our supperclub? Well now you can as we’re pleased to announce three new dates. You can book onto any of the events below!
Saturday 4th October 2014 – 3rd Birthday, Beer and Meat!
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 SOLD OUT
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
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
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!
Yes, it’s only September but we’ve had an overwhelming influx of emails from our readers eager to experience Dinner at the Manor.
We’ve finally agreed on dates and themes for the first few events of 2013, so we wanted to share them with you as soon as possible! We’d love to know what you think. Click on the links below for more details on each event and how to book.
Expect to experience a delicious 7 course menu in a beautiful Victorian home. You’ll be dining with strangers who will seem like old friends by the end of the night! For more info take a look at our what you need to know page.
A hundred limes, forty eggs, a small forest of coriander and a little bit of spice were some of the key ingredients for our most recent supperclub – inspired by Thomasina Miers’ ‘Mexican Food Made Simple.’ To brighten up a cold January weekend, we brought the exotic colours and flavours of Wahaca into the Manor and our guests positive response to this was wonderful!
Susie and I have been planning this event for some months now, as Miers’ book was our favourite of 2011. Continue reading →
My dining adventures continue. You can rely on the Christmas period to bring lots of greedy opportunities into life and I’m never one to turn one down! This weekend saw me within a one mile radius of Thomasina Miers’ chain Wahaca, and seeing as they have foolishly failed to bring this Mexican eatery to the North, tsk, I had to grace them with my presence and fill myself with their nosh. Plus we’re featuring Thomasina’s Mexican Food Made Simple at our January supperclub so I thought I’d go and get some presentation tips. Continue reading →
