The menu - Mostly Moorish Supper - 25th June 2011

Supper club on the 25th June is fast approaching. We are virtually fully booked and planning furiously. Recipes have been tested, seating plans & crockery sorted and the chickens have been given an egg-boosting pep talk. So we feel ready to release the menu for our 'Mostly Moorish Supper'. Hope it makes you hungry. Perhaps hungry enough to book the last 2 tickets......?

The meal will be served in an informal & relaxed mezze-style in my gorgeous leafy courtyard, surrounded by the herbs, peas, broad beans, zucchini plants that will be contributing to your supper.  We will have a few cozy blankets to ward off the chills and the brazier will be warm & glowing but we suggest you bring woolly jumper too. You can, of course, meet the chickens who will have made it all possible. We sincerely hope it won't be raining but we'll transfer inside if it does.
