Persian Supper Club at Alderford Lake !
So…..to recap, we are back at Alderford Lake this Autumn for one night only to kick of the festive seasons eatings:
- Saturday 24th November!
Bring along your friends, a sense of adventure and most importantly be prepared to over indulge 🙂
For those of you new to a Supper Club, the format of the evening is more of a social event than just a meal out. It is one for the foodie who likes to experience a bit more than going out and choosing off the menu. The seating allows you to be able to meet new friends who share a common interest and learn a little bit about the food along the way, whilst hopefully having a really good time.
Persian food is very familial. In Iran (and indeed my little house in North Shropshire) you cannot come to our homes without being fed, the more food on the table, the more we like you! My Supper Club is one that you go to as strangers and come out with some life long friends, as some of my existing Supper Clubbers will attest to.
It is not fine dining, it is huge pots of great flavours. Ones that when you take off the lid and close your eyes you can be transported to a Persian bazaar with all the fragrance, chatter and laughter that evokes.
So come along to enjoy some huge pots of food that have been lovingly prepared, chatter, laughter and to meet new friends. You will definitely not leave hungry! At my table you can count on second helpings!
I have a passion for traditional Persian food & authentic ingredients and at these events I will prepare and cook all of my favourite dishes from my childhood myself. The menu will feature classic Persian comfort foods and street fare that you would find in the Persian Bazaars.
The main flavour notes you can expect to taste are Saffron, Sumac, Lime, Cardamom, Rose, Turmeric and more!
Alderford Lake is a beautifully run family business in the most stunning setting. The ambience at is relaxed friendly and inviting. Think, the social aspect of going for a curry with your friends, with some good home cooking, conversation and laughter thrown into the mix.
So, if you want to come along and join in the fun please email your request through to firstname.lastname@example.org
