An evening of beautiful Syrian-inspired food to remind you of some of the very good things that Syria has and knows, plus it is all raising money for charity BYOB
The Syrian Supper Club with Ruth Quinlan as head chef and the E5 Bakehouse in London Fields are holding another of their sell-out Syrian Suppers. This isn’t just any supper club popping up on your radar, it is an evening of merriment, delicious food inspired by all the flavours of the Middle East and to add the final chickpea to the hummus, it is all for charity. We’re raising money for The Hands Up Foundation, supporting aid projects in Syria. A more apt question… why not join the table?
That’s just the beginning, wait until you hear about the chef… Ruth has fed prime ministers and pop stars, and is head chef at the Crow...
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.
