The way through a man's heart goes through his stomach. And that goes for women to. So what better way to celebrate Valentine's with a love themed supper club? Last night I was delighted to be a guest at an dinner created by the girls from Nordish, a supper club that dishes up Norwegian/Italian food.
Love was certainly in the air at this event as the girls had gone all out with Valentine's props. They were both wearing wobbly heart hairbands, and heart garlands were draped along the walls and dangling from the chandeliers. Rose petals and heart shaped sweeties were strewn upon the tables. Heart shaped candles were providing the mood lighting. The idea was that the men would change seats during each course, kind of like speed dating, but with slower and with food.
While mingling a little bit with the other guest we were treated to a welcome prosecco drink and salmon and beetroot canapes.
Then we sat down to enjoy our food. The menu was full of amore and we kicked off with with a naughty beetroot and mascarpone tart, which was a perfect combination.
It was followed by a red hot sorbet palate cleanser.
The men at both tables were asked to swap seats before we tucked into our mains. The second course was a saucy crayfish linguine which I had ordered from the three main options before hand. The other dishes were a handsome venison lasagna and a spinach and ricotta cannelloni. Even though I didn't manage to finish my food I loved it a lot.
Next was a Polish hazelnut flavoured vodka shot, served in a glass of ice, reminiscent of the Ice Bar and great for people who hate to do dishes.
After another men shuffle, we were served a rhubarb tiramisu aptly named veiled peasant girls, a Norwegian favourite.
