Roasted Supperclub

January 15, 2011

With Christmas done and dusted and a new year well under way, the Roasted Sundays posse are gearing up once more for having our stomachs stuffed full of delectable roasty goodness. It has taken us a little longer than expected to recover from the overindulgance that inevitably accompanies the festive period, but now that the last remnants of turkey have been sweated out from our bodies during a fortnight of detoxing we are re-energized and raring to go.

To begin 2011 we will be branching out from the traditional pub roast to an intimate sitting within a converted church in East London at a supperclub hosted by nutritionist, Chris Sandel, and chef, Matt Phelps. Their concept of providing, demonstrating and explaining the role healthy, seasonal ingredients play at meal time was one that appealed to us (especially appropriate during January…a month when the nation decides as a whole to abandon vices, join their nearest health club for a month or so and purchase fitness dvd’s from the latest in vogue z-list celebrities). We are honoured to have been invited along to experience what should not only be a fantastic feed but also a very educational experience.

The mouthwatering menu we shall be devouring is thus:

Canape

Choucroute Garnie

Starter

Jerusalem Artichoke and Winter Vegetable Soup with St Gall Cheese and Sourdough

Main

Slow Roast Lamb Shank with Goose Fat Roast Potatoes, Winter Veg Mash, Greens, Lamb Faggot Stuffing, Yorkshire and a Redcurrant and Rosemary Gravy

Dessert

Dark Chocolate Tart with Homemade Orange and Ginger Raw Cream

A full report will follow here on the site in a couple of weeks time but in case any of you are interested to find out more about the supperclub that Chris and Matt present, then information can be found here.

    uh-oh.

    Please promise us that you will continue with your pub visits and not be bought out by the posh players, greedy for your wonderful reviews?


  3. Nadia – Of course we will continue with the pub reviews so no need to worry. We have a whole list of exciting untried pubs in the pipeline for 2011.

  4. Rohan Says:

    Does this list of ‘exciting untried pubs’ includes some in the south? You didn’t go south once in 2010, disappointing. There’s plenty of great pubs doing great roasts down here that haven’t even been mentioned.

    Forget about Gordon Ramsey, bring it back to basics. Or does south of the river not sit well on your palate?


  5. We agree that we have been neglecting south of the river and we do indeed plan to head down that way soon.
