And now there is another reason to pay a visit with a series of special supper clubs that allow their chefs a little more creative freedom on the plate. I was lucky enough to attend their first night, with a four course meal and matched wines by Joe Wadhams from Enotria Wines. Although I knew their food was a good standard anyway, I was still pleasantly surprised with the more refined and crafted presentation and techniques of this meal.
Best dish of the night had to go to the lamb with a succulent piece of rump and glazed shoulder. It was served with two of my favourite vegetables, an artichoke and tenderstem broccoli. Luckily the alarming looking grub worm turned out to be a Chinese Artichoke which I imagine tasted far better than the former. We played a little game with two reds served with this dish. One made by a man and the other a woman and from either the north or south of Rhone which we had to guess.
