London based event designer Hilde and bespoke caterer Caiger & Co. have teamed up to launch the first HOPE supper club in aid of St. Cuthbert’s, an open-door drop-in centre for vulnerable and homeless people in West London.
Launching on Thursday 21st March, the menu will focus on highly nutritious and macrobiotic elements, with a nod to nose to tail eating and a promise to only source ingredients from artisanal suppliers from in and around London.
The seasonal six-course menu will be served to up to 40 people who will be seated at two long shared tables. The whole evening will be thoughtfully styled with an understated aesthetic at heart, offering a visual and culinary interpretation of ‘hope’. Expect a warm and inspiring evening at Benk + Bo, one of East London’s finest independent venues, whilst supporting a good and humble cause. All proceeds are going to St. Cuthbert’s.
The menu includes:
Lava bread & oatcakes, smoked eel, pickled cockles with smoked bacon, oca di Peru
Maldon oyster served in rock salt & seaweed with fermented rhubarb & stems
Herb & ricotta in black ravioli, kombu broth, enoki mushrooms, parmesan
‘Bubble & Squeak’ –smoked artichokes, Iberico pork, hispi cabbage & crisps
Lamb loin, nettle & wild garlic sauce, butter beans & confit fennel
Layered pavlova with meringue shards, rhubarb & orange, star anise cream
The night is BYOB (bring your own booze) so please do bring your own drinks –whatever makes you happy!
