Le Grand aioli! Papadeli's next supper club is a Provencale feast!

I actually went as a guest to last year's Provence dinner and was SO impressed we've decided to bring it back for more people to enjoy.  Can't really find the words to describe this absolute FEAST of Summery flavours and delicacies.  Starting with a lavender cocktail - how dreamy, the food starts to arrive little amuses gueules, onto gorgeous crevettes and then out comes the GRAND AIOLI like some fabulous French gourmet film - all the best vegetables, bowls of creamy, garlicky aioli and big fleshy pieces of salt cod and poussin to dip.
Yes, I'm getting excited - it HAS to be experienced!!
So, it's June 18th and costs £40  Don't miss it! I won't!
Back by popular demand!!

papadeli picnics

I know, I know, it's freezing and we're nearly half way through May, but the weather WILL soon get warmer and then we can all go on some lovely picnics.  And then Papadeli comes into its own - all our lovely delicatessen and takeaway food counter is perfect for a picnic.  Fresh marinated olives, creamy cheese stuffed chillies, tartlets made here, wedges of delicious tortilla, a slice of divine salmon en croute - you just have to visit and take a look!

What about a salad box - I had one the other day, just to remind myself how stunning they are - every mouthful was so full of flavour, I just can't describe it here.  Beetroot, hazelnut, red onion and feta, Moroccan spicy chickpeas, salade nicoise, new potatoe and chorizo, broad bean, mint and goat's cheese. I could go on and on.

It really reminded me how lovely salad can be!!
Then you can move on to some of the mouthwatering cakes - I had a raspberry and rhubarb tartlet his morning which I devoured with such enthusiasm and speed that it was all over far to soon. You could also have a slice of fabulous chocolate mousse cake or some pear upside down cake.  Or go for a famous papadeli brownie which you will want to go on for ever.

If you're planning a picnic, either come in and point out what you'd like, or you can order in advance - here are our picnic options to help you out a bit.
