Location: Darjeeling Express, Kingly Court, London
And so it began...
"...we took inspiration from Asma Khan (Owner, Darjeeling Express) in the way she use to host her supperclub-style sunday service at her restaurant just round the corner from Oxford Circus station. It was informal, cosy and it felt like we were stepping into a family home - it was a feeling we wanted to emulate at all of our events. We knew we just HAD to connect. "
The menu consisted of a four course meal showcasing afro-asian fusion - kicking off with a trio of starters we served up jerk prawn dumplings, ackee and truffle gyoza & salt and pepper okra fries
The first installment of The Supperclub Sessions was hosted at Darjeeling Express situated on the top floor of Kingly Court, it is the brainchild of a formidable head chef whose kitchen is ran entirely by a cohort of kick-ass mothers, aunties and sisters - basically bringing together all the techniques and secrets of generations of home-cooked Indian food right to the heart of London.
It was here that we decided to launch our own story, with a series of playful asian dishes we hosted our first supperclub on 29th April 2018 and it was a sell out!
"You will continue to find that an infusion of flavours from around the world is at the heart of the Ramen & Sazeracs DNA, a signature style that really emphasises Dianna’s passion for food as well as her drive to create an environment in which everyone is welcome and included."
Our sold out event saw a full house mingle the evening away in a concoction of soulful live music from @drew_archie, an acoustic rendition of garage classics from @_olares_ and @flashsampson91 hands on the DJ decks - it was a sensation for the senses all round! Huge thank you to @blackstone_visuals for working the video camera and @csylsy.lens for caputuring the magic.
