In November, the Cardamom and Dill Supper Club is returning to my dedicated 14-seat restaurant at Spark:York. As before, my menus will be designed around authentic recipes and ingredients gifted to me by my friends and the inspiring cooks I meet during my travels throughout the Mediterranean and beyond.
On Friday 9th November, my theme is inspired a sultry evening in Gáïos on the verdant island of Paxos, the smallest of several tiny olive-covered land masses that quietly sit within the Ionian Sea. Here I present you with a taste of a sharing feast I enjoyed sitting in the secluded harbour watching the fishing boats quietly glide across the ocean (please see my menu below).
November sharing menu, £30 per head (excluding drinks)
The starters will be presented as mezze-style dishes to share featuring three Greek classics including my sumptuous tomato keftedes with feta and wild oregano, a fresh herb & olive oil hummus and zesty tzatziki with dill & mint served alongside lemon-dressed rocket leaves and Arabic bread.
A creamy vegetarian moussaka comprised of layers of juicy plum tomatoes, plump aubergines and new potatoes gently brought together in a creamy béchamel sauce and topped with a sourdough and halloumi crumb
Gigantes plaki, sumptuous buttery beans slowly cooked with cherry tomatoes, lemons, dill and mint and garnished with fresh dill and Aleppo pepper
A punchy chickpea salad with feta, chillies, fresh mint and basil
A slice of my sticky orange and honey cake topped with toasted pistachios – a classic from the island of Aegina where the nuts and honey from local beekeepers are abundant – served with a quenelle of lime-infused Greek yoghurt and fresh berries
This menu is subject to slight change according to what’s available at the time.
