Plate Lickers #2

Pin It

Friday 13th saw the latest date of our Plate Lickers supper club which we were very lucky to host at St Paul’s Church in Cambridge. The evening was our take on a Middle Eastern theme.

We were very lucky to be able to source our products from local suppliers. Our star of the night, the Dingley Dell pork belly (recipe coming soon) was bought from Northrops on Mill Road who were very kind to score the meat for us and gave us some great advice on how to get the best crackling. We also sourced our vegetables & delicious peaches from The Cambridge Fruit Company. Neil arrived bright and early on Friday morning and was surprisingly chirpy for someone that had woken up at 11pm to head to the market. I can't miss out the lovely lady on the Cambridge market where I bought the flowers. They were all grown in her garden and were absolutely stunning, I think she's only there on Thursdays but be sure to visit her. I also have to say a huge thank you to John at St Paul's for allowing us to host our evening there.

We had so much fun setting up the venue for the evening, as you can see, we were very lucky to be able to use the actual church to serve the meal in. The menu for the evening consisted of-

Pomegranate & Vodka Cocktails

Homemade hummus & aubergine dip

Green gazpacho soup

Roasted Pork Belly or Courgette & Feta Fritters (v) served with a gooseberry, elderflower & ginger relish (recipe coming on Jo's blog soon) with a cous cous salad & a hazelnut, green bean & orange salad

Mint Tea & Orange Blossom Water Sorbet

Peaches roasted in a cinnamon syrup stuffed with nuts & served with an almond & polenta cake


We have already had some incredibly kind reviews from-
Aoife
Nora
There is also a write up coming up in the August issue of Cambridge Edition magazine so keep your eyes peeled for that.

We are now in the process of planing the next event so if you are interested in coming please sign up to our mailing list to find out first about our next date.
