best of british supper

British supper 25th Sepetember

Papadeli only opens in the evening once a month - and it usually takes the whole month to prepare for it. We select a region eg Sicily, Haute Savoie, Liguria and put together an absolute feast of the finest dishes from that area. We can seat up to 40 people, so it's pretty intimate - but totally unique in atmosphere and offering.

Guests sip a lavender cocktail or a glass of prosecco in the deli downstairs, whilst nibbling on various mini delights eg mini salad nicoise assembled on a new potato, tiny saffron & tomato tartlets, an espresso cup of wild gazpacho. Everybody ends up chatting to each other. A large number of guests return on a number of occasions and there is quite a gang of people who have met through the papadeli evenings.

There is a very short introduction about the feast that lies ahead, before everybody enthusiastically sits down and begins.
