Supper Club

Returning to central York in January 2020, the Cardamom and Dil Supper Club begins an exciting series of seasonally-inspired vegetarian dinners for 20 guests hosted by Sketch by Origin, a vibrant contemporary space housed in York Art Gallery. As always, my menus will be designed around the authentic recipes and ingredients gifted to me by my friends and the inspiring cooks I meet during my travels throughout the eastern Mediterranean.

The price is £30 per head excluding drinks and the doors open at 7pm for a 7.30pm start.

January menu (gluten-free)

This evening’s menu is inspired by a sultry evening in Jaffa – Yafo – an ancient port south of Tel Aviv whose narrow winding streets are lined with beautifully restored Arabic buildings and shady courtyards. This vibrant little enclave is famous for its association with the biblical stories of Jonah, Solomon and Saint Peter as well as the mythological story of Andromeda and Perseus and later for its oranges. It was once a place I called home…


To start

White bean and fresh sage messabecha, a creamy hummus served with whole chickpeas, peppery rocket leaves, chopped spring onions, a sprinkling of zesty sumac and warmed flatbread

To follow

A sumptuous Manchego cheese, pistachio and pomegranate roast with a spicy tomato and olive oil sauce served on a bed of peppery leaves, chopped fresh mint and dill fronds drizzled with pomegranate molasses

Batata harra, deliciously spicy roasted new potatoes with a Middle Eastern spice blend

A sumptuous salad of baby spinach leaves, medjool dates, toasted almonds and pomegranate arils 

To finish

Peach, lime and pistachio polenta cake served with orange blossom-infused Greek yoghurt, crushed pistachios and a drizzle of Leah’s organic honey
