Eat Meet Supperclub

Brockley's first supper club organiser held her first full evening this weekend. Julie says:

Diners included food bloggers and life-long supperclub aficionados who tucked into a fruity-themed four course feast in our back garden.

Guests were thrust a cucumber gin cooler on arrival before they sat down to a salad starter of watermelon, green beans and halloumi with a mint dressing. Next was the main course of roasted Gressingham duck with cider baked puy lentils, watercress and pomegranate. Dessert was earl grey panna cotta with boozy berries and lemon and poppy seed mini biscuits.

More wine and water flowed and as the sun finally went down over Telegraph Hill, while the fruity-theme was continued in the cheese course of five british cheeses, quince jelly, homemade apple chutney and homemade spelt digestive biscuits.

Local foodie blogger Hollow Legs went and gave it her blessing:

"For £25 and to bring your own booze, it was a great evening; really interesting and chatty people, and lovely hosts in Julie and Sophie, who sat down with us at the end. Heartily recommended."

The next event is a singles night - persuading men to come to a supperclub singles night is apparently notoriously difficult, but we're sure Brockley can buck the trend.

or search for us on facebook to find future events or book for the next one... which is a singles event (roll-up roll-up men! We still have spaces for three single gents).

I think this is a really good idea.

From my own experience trying to set friends up, it always works much better when billed as "mates getting together for dinner" or similar. More relaxed. The girls relax but the guys are more on edge as they aren't 100pc sure whether the girls are there for fun or to meet someone. Which uncertainty in the male mind, any man will tell you, is apparently essential to create a little necessary tension.

Have fun all.

The way to meet people in Brockley is to do things for the community.

That's 'a' way of meeting people not 'the' way.
