The Gourmet Gays – A Venezian Evening Of Cicchetti

The Gourmet Gays – A Venezian Evening Of Cicchetti

I’ve been attending supper clubs for over two years now, but although I’ve been to loads they’re mostly run by the same few people. It had been ages since I went to a new one. Step in the new kids on the block, ‘The Gourmet Gays’, also known as Stephen, Andy and Carl. The menu for their inaugural supper club ... Read More »

‘I liked this before anyone else knew about it’ #DBHIPSTER

‘I liked this before anyone else knew about it’ #DBHIPSTER

When I first started going to the ‘Drunken Butcher’s’ supper clubs the concepts were pretty simple. Generally based around a specific cuisine or individual meat; Spanish or French for example; pork, game or steaks perhaps. Over the past year the main theme of his events have got ever more elaborate. Recent supper clubs include: ‘Poet’s Corner’, where every dish was inspired by a poem, ‘All Bets Are ... Read More »

‘The Cheek Of It’ by The Drunken Butcher

‘The Cheek Of It’ by The Drunken Butcher

Many people – including Iain, aka the Drunken Butcher – say the cheek is the best part of any animal. It makes sense really given how much work those muscles get through. They can be tough though without careful cooking, luckily he knows what he’s doing and decided to show us by putting on ‘The Cheek Of It’, a seven ... Read More »

Chicken Soup for the Soul: Jewish Soul Food Supper Club

Chicken Soup for the Soul: Jewish Soul Food Supper Club

It was my third time at one of Sue Waxman’s ‘Chicken Soup for the Soul’ supper clubs at her home in Prestwich. The first absolutely blew me away but by her own very high standards the second wasn’t quite as good. Thankfully, the third, ‘Jewish Soul Food’ was almost as good as the original. Beisdes a couple of mainstay dishes, most of ... Read More »

Chicken Soup for the Soul – Balabusta Delight

Chicken Soup for the Soul – Balabusta Delight

Of the almost 20 supper clubs I attended last year, one of my favourites was ‘Chicken Soup For The Soul‘. An Israeli/Middle Eastern inspired feast cooked up by Sue Waxman at her Prestwich home. When she announced her next event ‘Balabusta Delight’ would feature some of her favourite Jewish dishes I snapped up tickets immediately. With more guests than ever before the table ... Read More »

The Drunken Butcher ‘One Night Stand’ – 12 Course Tasting Menu With Wine Pairing

The Drunken Butcher ‘One Night Stand’ – 12 Course Tasting Menu With Wine Pairing

There were glimpses of the Drunken Butcher’s fancier, more refined side at his Spanish themed supper club last year. But even that didn’t quite prepare me for the transformation from hearty, comfort food to the fine dining tasting menu at his very special ‘One Night Stand’ event last November. Not only was it Iain’s most ambitious menu to date, it was by ... Read More »

Drunken Butcher’s Xmas Party

Drunken Butcher’s Xmas Party

I wasn’t feeling particularly festive when I woke up the morning after the Arepa!Areapa!Arepa! Christmas Supper Club, possibly because I was nursing a slight hangover. But there was no time for pity as I had another party to attend, this time the Drunken Butcher’s Xmas party. It didn’t look much like a party when we arrived to be honest, there was ... Read More »

Arepa!Arepa!Arepa! Christmas Supper Club @ Trove, Levenshulme

Arepa!Arepa!Arepa! Christmas Supper Club @ Trove, Levenshulme

Arepa!Arepa!Arepa! (aka GoodGobbleBlog aka Grub aka Jules and Bailey) have gone from strength to strength since I attended their inaugural supper club last January. After outgrowing their dining room they’ve taken over the kitchen at BrewDog and moved their supper clubs to Trove in Levenshulme. I missed the first one but made sure I got tickets to their Christmas event ... Read More »

Game Of Bones – ‘All Pigs Must Die’ By The Drunken Butcher

Game Of Bones – ‘All Pigs Must Die’ By The Drunken Butcher

It’s no secret that I’m a huge fan of the Drunken Butcher and his supper clubs. I’ve eaten his food more times than I can remember over the last year (luckily I wrote about much of it here so I don’t have to). Recently he’s been getting quite refined and producing more accomplished and technical dishes, but the thing that first attracted me to his food was rustic ... Read More »

Malaysia Kitchen Supper Club – Malaysian Banquet @ Ning, Manchester

Malaysia Kitchen Supper Club – Malaysian Banquet @ Ning, Manchester

I’ve been to many supper clubs this year but they’ve always been run by individuals, usually in their own homes. Somewhat different from an event I attended recently; a supper club in an actual restaurant, with food cooked by a celebrity chef and hosted by a national government! The ‘Malaysian Banquet’ was hosted by Malaysia Kitchen – a programme aimed ... Read More »

Menu de Degustacion: Spanish Supper Club by Manchester Foodies

Menu de Degustacion: Spanish Supper Club by Manchester Foodies

This time last year i’d just been to my first ever supper club at the home of fellow bloggers who I now consider friends, Jamie and Anna, aka Manchester Foodies. Since then I’ve attended many others, with one of the highlights being their amazing American Feast back in February. I enjoy their supper clubs so much I’d go no matter what the theme, but ...

Liz’s Deep South Feast by the Drunken Butcher

Liz’s Deep South Feast by the Drunken Butcher

The Drunken Butcher clearly has a great imagination and talent for continuing to come up with exciting new concepts for his supper clubs, but even the greatest minds need a little help from time to time. Recently he’s taken to developing custom menu’s for private, invitation only supper clubs based on a theme chosen by the organiser. I was lucky enough to ... Read More »

‘Let’s Have A Meating’ by The Drunken Butcher

‘Let’s Have A Meating’ by The Drunken Butcher

I’ve been to many supper clubs over the past nine months but none more regularly than the ‘Drunken Butcher’s‘ aka Iain Devine. His food is always fantastic and he somehow keeps coming up with new, interesting concepts. Most recently I attended his American themed ‘Deep South Feast’ but before that there was the aptly named ‘Let’s Have A Meating’. In preparation for the ... Read More »
