Hello lovelies! Well…. I am so excited to share this news. My Little Persian Kitchen will be popping up to launch a Supper Club at Alderford Lakeon two dates this Summer:
Saturday 23rd June
Saturday 11th August!
It will be our first ever ‘Supper Club’ so I am a tad nervous but equally so excited to share a little piece of Persia with you all 🙂
When thinking about taking the plunge and launching a ‘Supper Club’I considered making my food more ‘main stream’. Plating it all in the small delicate portions that we are all so used to seeing in print, on TV and Instagram these days. Something didn’t sit quite right with me about this though as that for me loses the essence of what I love so much about Persian food and that is what it represents and indeed why I started on this journey in the first place!
When you go to a Persian friends house for dinner you never leave hungry! My friends & family will all testify to that! 🙂
Persian food is very familial. It is a social event. One that you go to as strangers and come out with some life long friends. It is not fine dining, I must be clear on that. It is big pots of great flavours. Ones that when you take off the lid and you close your eyes you can be transported to a Persian bazaar with all the fragrance, chatter and laughter that evokes. So, this is why, what I am bringing to Alderford Lake is just that, big sharing plates, two huge tables, huge pots of food that have been lovingly prepared, chatter, laughter and you are guaranteed to meet new people and 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. 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 be the first to try out this new dining experience please email your request through to firstname.lastname@example.org
