The Shed is one!

Not the blog - though technically I guess this is one too - the supper club. And what a year it has been. If you ever feel a bit despondent or lose your faith in humanity, I urge you to start a supper club; you'll soon discover that people are amazing. You'll also realise that you're slightly bonkers but WHO CARES? it's a whole pile of fun. Go on, have a go, and invite me while you're at it.

Anyway, we had a party.








Bruchetta with Italian Salsa
Cured meats from Trealy Farm
Olives, Bread & Oil

Saffron Cream Pasta
Pasta Arabiatta

Griddled Prawns with Lemon Mayonnaise
Marinated BBQ Pork
BBQ Vegetables
Aubergine Parmagiana

Homemade Vanilla Ice Cream & Salted Caramel Sauce
Baked Peaches with Mascapone & Honey

BIRTHDAY CAKE! by Lex

All washed down with wine smuggled back from Sicily
£10 a head

We had 29 attendees and so did away with chairs, crockery, and cutlery in favour of mingling and disposable plates. Lex of Lex Eat made the most delicious - and attractive! - birthday cake we could have asked for; a rich, moist chocolate cake with a white chocolate and cream cheese frosting and Smarties. Bloody marvellous. What started as a moderately civilised garden party ended with shots of grappa while laying on the floor of the shed; a fitting celebration I'm sure you'll agree.

Thanks to Lex for the cake, Matt for the photos, and everyone who has been to The Shed for making it so damn special for us. You rock.

  2. Happy birthday Shed! It was a truly fabulous day and the food was excellent as always, as was the company. Here's to many more meals in the Shed that start out in daylight and end well after dark ...
