We are holding this special, one-off evening in support of our appeal: Syria, Food for Thought. It doesn't get much more unique than getting the amazing Anissa Helou to curate a menu in collaboration with the Syrian Supper Club's head chef, Ruth Quinlan.
Syria, Food for Thought is inviting as many people as possible to hold their own Syrian Supper before March 2018 and aims to raise over £50,000 for the projects Hands Up funds in Syria. Imagine the impact of over 300 Syrian Suppers... if each raised just £100 that would fund annual salaries of 5 doctors in Syria.
We couldn't possibly give the game away yet, but it will be an unrepeatable feast.
Read more about these amazing chefs via the links below and the sorts of things they've done. This will give you an idea!
We like to place guests at our Syrian Suppers, so please make sure you let us know, in the notes when booking, if you'd like to be seated with particular people who have booked separately.
We do also cater for vegan/veggie and dairy/nut free, so please highlight this in the notes when booking so that the right food comes your way.
Thanks so much!
the Syrian Supper Club team
We like Food, we particularly like Syrian Food and we really like Syria. In July 2012 we decided to do something to show our friends in Syria that they had not been forgotten and to raise money in light of the growing humanitarian crisis. We mixed some ideas about; food, Syria, people around a kitchen table, merriment, experimenting, raising awareness and funds. The result was a Syrian Supper Club, it was the only idea which rose from the cooking pot and stayed intact.
Now we have teamed up with Chef Ruth Quinlan and the E5 Bakehouse to do a series of Syrian Suppers at the Bakehouse in London Fields; an ideal setting for a Syrian feast.
Ruth Quinlan has fed prime ministers and pop stars and is head chef at the Crown, Kemerton. She started at the Eagle (& compiled their book), was head chef at the Bermondsey Kitchen and E5 Bakehouse, has toured the world as a travelling chef and once toyed with becoming a tattooist in Ibiza - for our sake and yours, we're delighted she chose the wooden spoon and not the needle.
The Syrian Supper Club was set up by four friends and since 2012 we have held over 150 suppers, fed over 3,000 people and rolled a whole heap of falafel. Other Syrian Suppers have popped up around the world, in places like Cairo, Singapore, Washington D.C. and Istanbul. We were even featured in Vogue and named one of London's best new supper clubs in January 2014.
The Syrian Supper Club uses a very simple yet powerful formula; by gathering people around a table and sharing food people are united behind a common cause. To date we have raised over £200,000 for our registered charity, The Hands Up Foundation's projects in Syria (charity no. 1156491).
In terms of cancellation, we can offer a full refund on a ticket as long as you let us know at least three days before the event. This is to ensure that we don't end up with empty seats round the dinner table, and each supper raises the maximum it can for the aid projects we fund in Syria.
