We've always loved supper clubs' way of bringing a group of people together in a casual setting to eat, chat and share everything from the bread basket to their opinion on the new Game of Thrones – so we were seriously excited to host our first event at our HQ in Battersea on 4 April 2019.
We worked with some of our favourite businesses from around Battersea, Clapham and Brixton to create menus inspired by local produce. Guests received three courses and a welcome drink for £30, and it was BYOB on the night.
Social Pantry is a café just down the road from us that dishes up simple, seasonal cooking. They're also a brilliant social enterprise and were a winner at this year's Foodism 100 Awards.
Natoora supplies almost 1,000 of the best restaurants in London, Paris and New York with seasonal produce. The brand is working to build a transparent supply chain, celebrating the work of the growers behind the fruit and veg they source.
Abel & Cole
Abel & Cole are farm-to-front-door home delivery pioneers, delivering fresh, seasonal, organic food to homes for 30 years. Nowadays they deliver not just fantastic seasonal organic fruit & veg boxes, but artisan bread, milk, meat, recipes boxes, meal kits and more, to thousands of food loving homes around England and Wales every week.
They're providing us with MCS-certified fish – coley and herring from the Celtic Coast Fish company – for our supper club. Coley is one of the most sustainable (and delicious) alternatives to cod and halibut. We'll also be serving Abel & Cole's lamb, which comes from the Eversfield Organic Farm in South West England.
Common is a new addition to Clapham, serving organic artisan breads, sandwiches, patisseries and cakes. It's more than a café – it's an eco-lifestyle hub, with a zero waste station where you can buy grains, pulses, nuts, spices, herbs and cleaning products, all of which are plastic-free.
Doghouse Distillery is an independent grain distillery a stone's throw from our offices, in the railway arches in Battersea. The team are pioneering grain to bottle gin and vodka, and it's the first distillery in recent years to make gin from scratch in London.
A former air raid shelter under Clapham Common seems like an unlikely place to grow fresh salad and herbs, but that's exactly what Growing Underground does. Now, they're used by the likes of Michel Roux and more, and they've supplied some of the produce for this evening.
Bad Boys Bakery
Bad Boys Bakery is a social enterprise based in HM Prison Brixton that effectively helps people with convictions improve their skills and reintegrate them into society and employment on the release. It was set up by Gordon Ramsey in 2012, and teaches them how to make bread, cakes, brownies and sandwiches.
Originally manufactured in the Black Country area near Birmingham, Falcon Enamelware's blue-rimmed white dishes are iconic.
