It has been a busy year. You may have noticed! So busy that I never even managed to have a launch party for my book. Which is a very poor show indeed.
To compensate, before the year is out, I will be cooking a Comfort & Spice Christmas Lunch at Blacks Private Members Club on Dean St in Soho on Saturday December 17th. It is a fabulous spot, and isn’t open to the public normally, so it is a great opportunity to pretend that you are a member for the day.
Lunch will be intimate, seating 35 people. It is a bargain: £30, incl drink on arrival by the big open fire downstairs, and 3 courses (but excluding wine with lunch). Aubert & Mascoli are providing some very fairly priced wine matches, which are sure to be terrific and well sourced and always from interesting, small producers.
It promises to be a cracker. We have sole access to the club until 6pm – so it will be like Comfort & Spice Club at Blacks :)
I will be cooking – of course – and a rough sketch of the menu includes my favourites from the book:
Spiced Pumpkin Soup
Overnight Slow Roast Pork Shoulder
Chocolate Mousse with Honeycomb
Hot spiced drinks on arrival
Vegetarian options on request – do let me know as early as possible.
To book: email firstname.lastname@example.org. Spaces are limited. Lunch will be served at 1:30pm.
