Throughout 2018 I am curating a collection of exclusive candle-lit long table Supper Clubs for just 20 people in association with the School House Gallery in York.
An Evening in Naples
For our second event on 16 February, I created a set three-course menu featuring the exciting flavours of Naples and the Amalfi coast utilising the very best of seasonal ingredients.
A welcome cocktail
Polenta and Parmigiano-Reggiano bruschetta with a Kalamata olive tapenade and a sun-dried tomato
Quartieri Spagnoli aubergine parmigiana (melanzane alla parmigiana), beautiful layers of slow-cooked tomato and red wine sauce, aubergine and mozzarella topped with a sourdough and Parmigiano-Reggiano crumb
A creamy ragù of cannellini beans with rosemary, garlic and chilli
Chopped cavolo nero salad with lemon baked ricotta, fennel, toasted pine kernels and shavings of nutty pecorino
Bustrengo, a traditional Italian dessert featuring a heady mix of fresh apples, figs, golden sultanas, Tuscan honey, Umbrian olive oil, polenta, organic spelt flour, sourdough breadcrumbs, cinnamon and the zest of several lemons and oranges, topped with crème fraîche epaisse swirled with limoncello, a garnish of Amalfi lemon zest and a sliver of fresh fig
Each course was paired with suggested wines.
There is just one place left for our Lebanese-inspired supper club on 16th March and our Provence-inspired Spring Supper Club will take place on Friday 20th April. There are a few places left for this one but it’s selling out fast so please contact either me or Robert at the gallery to book.
