Question: what do a DIY scotch egg, an underwear shop designer and an old ice factory in South West London have in common? Answer: they all feature in the next Grub Club by those mischievous mavens of experiential dining, The Dinner Ladies.
For their Autumn Supper, the ladies are teaming up with Masterchef semi-finalist Brodie Williams who, since featuring on the show, has said goodbye to his role as Design Architect for Agent Provocateur in order to become a full-time chef.
Hosted at the London Cooking Project in Battersea, the evening combines an interactive cookery lesson with some belt-loosening seasonal feasting. Under the Ladies’ and Brodie’s watchful eyes, you will learn how to master, amongst other things, a black pudding scotch egg, beetroot gnocchi, a confit duck leg bonbon, butternut dauphinoise, a wild rice, celeriac and goat’s cheese-stuffed squash and a chocolate and berry mousse.
As well as being a beautiful venue for supper clubs, The London Cooking Project is a professional prep kitchen and home to some of the country’s top chefs so any aspiring Masterchefs amongst you will feel right at home. But even if your interest in micro herbs and anything cooked ‘sous-vide’ begins and ends with the eating, not the cheffing, you can’t fail to enjoy this convivial, BYOB night of communal cooking and feasting. And hopefully not a blue plaster in sight.
