New Year’s Eve Greek Supper Club – London’s best food dinner party on NYE 2011

December 19, 2011

We’re bringing back the popular Greekfoodlover’s Supper Club on NYE 31 December 2011, where I’ll be cooking all the food and you’ll be sitting down eating a feast of Greek mezedes and Kleftiko and lots of other Greek delicacies on New Year’s Eve. There will be desserts too! We’ll start at 7:30pm and finish after midnight when you can continue celebrating somewhere else if you wish to go on partying. So if you want to spend an evening with great Greek food and good company, this is the place where you can eat and socialise on New Year’s Eve without being rushed off your seat!

Here is the full menu:

Mezedes for starters:

Dolmades and tzatziki, Spanakopita, Aubergine surprise rolls (if you like moussaka you’ll love this one!), Fava, Kalamata olives and Home baked bread.

Main:

Kleftiko – slowly roasted lamb served with Greek roast lemon potatoes and bulgur pilaf and salad

Desserts:

Baklava and many more sweet surprises

The cost for the supperclub is £55 per person and you get all of these delicious dishes on your plates.

Portions are Greek and generous, all dishes are home made. BYOB! Limited space so if you want to book for your party or just yourself, get in touch soon to arrange for your payment, as we were sold out for last year’s NYE Supperclub. (Vegan and vegetarian options available, let me know upon booking and at least 5 days in advance to order the ingredients). We start on Fri 31 Dec at 7:30pm and finish a few hours later, so if you want to stay for the 12 o’clock midnight and change of the year you’re welcome, but if you want to move on and party around in Shoreditch or walk to the Thames River for the fireworks that works too.

Only free range meat is used and Extra Virgin Greek Olive Oil for all cooking/frying/baking.

Advanced payment only, £55 per person, all food included, you only bring your own drink.

First come first served, so please book early to avoid disappointment!! I had to turn people away last time so book in time as space is limited.

Greekfoodlovers’ Supper Club – Sunday 5 December

November 15, 2010

I’ve been running Greek Cookery Class for 1,5 years and I never really thought this adventure of introducing and teaching how to make Greek food to non-Greeks would come this far. But it has! And I’m proud of all the students of all ages, and from all over the world who find such interest in cooking, are so excited about learning and so focussed in achieving to create all the Greek dishes I make them cook. It’s a pleasure to watch them work hard, but it’s also a wonderful experience to see and to taste the food they make, especially when it tastes as if I’ve made it myself!

Food and eating is such a big part of Greek culture, to eat together and gather around food and spend time around the table with family, friends and acquaintances is one of the most important things we ought to do every day.

A few months ago, I started my Greekfoodlovers’ Supper Club, where I cook and my guests come and eat, as opposed to the Greek Cookery Class where we all cook and eat together, sometimes wash the dishes together and always get a generous doggy bag to take home for lunch or dinner the day after.
