At 83 Dalston Lane

It's cold, it's wet and winter has well and truly set in. So in order to cheer ourselves up, we decided to host a very special event: the second instalment of our Local Heroes supper club, celebrating the best of London's local producers.
April saw us host our first event in our studio space in Battersea, working with the likes of Social Pantry, Growing Underground, Abel & Cole and more. You can read more about what happened at our first party here.
This time round we headed east, to Hackney.
Tickets were £35, which gave you three courses and a welcome drink from one of our partners. The rest of the evening was BYOB.

Who was cooking?
Gray's Inn Kitchen
Run by brother and sister Tim and Emily Perkin, Gray's Inn Kitchen is a Dalston-based catering company that began its life as a venture run out of Tim's flat kitchen on Gray's Inn Road. The business was almost wholly comprised of set catering for the fashion industry at first, but has recently expanded into events, weddings and supper clubs which take place at The Gray's Inn Kitchen and event space on 83 Dalston Lane. Which is exactly where you'll find us for this here supper club.
The Local Heroes
Hill & Szrok
Hill & Szrok's butcher shop only works with whole animals, butchering them in house and making sure nothing is wasted.
This independent, Hackney-based brewery champions flavour, provenance and consistency.
Renegade produces all of its wines in a railway arch in Bethnal Green, all the way from the pressing of the grapes to the labelling of the bottles.
Dusty Knuckle bakery
Dusty Knuckle is one of London's best-loved bakeries, using organic ingredients to make incredible bread and knock-out sandwiches.
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.
Bulk Market is a social enterprise community-focused grocery in the heart of East London with a mission to help make a low-waste lifestyle easier and more affordable. It's a one stop shop for household essentials – all locally sourced, certified organic and package-free.
Originally manufactured in the Black Country area near Birmingham, Falcon Enamelware's blue-rimmed white dishes are iconic.
