Our suppers are designed to be intimate affairs with 8 to 12 guests per evening. The suppers take place at our home on the outskirts of Haywards Heath, West Sussex just a short cab ride or reasonable walk from the mainline station. As they are held in our home informality is the order of the day.

Each menu has been thoroughly researched and tested to allow you experience a modern approach to historical cooking. Typically we serve a set menu consisting of a complimentary beverage, three courses with homemade sourdough bread plus coffee and a selection of teas. We want you to leave sated, inspired and happy. With this in mind we use only the best ingredients sourced as locally as possible. In the spirit of of our ancestral cooks almost everything is made from scratch whether it be stock, pastry or bread. All you need to bring with you is a healthy appetite and your choice of drink for the evening.

An 18th Century Spanish Repast

Infused with aromatic ingredients like garlic, saffron and black pepper the recipes written by the 18th century Spanish friar Juan Altamiras (The New Art of Cookery, 1767are far from frugal. This Iberian inspired menu with Moorish influences (based on the translated and modernised recipes by Vicky Hayward, who specialises in Spanish food history)  will definitely excite the tastebuds with it’s piquant marinades and slow cooked estofados.

MKR Favourites

This menu includes the most successful dishes we cooked on Channel 4’s My Kitchen Rules last year. From a medieval starter that received the highest score for a course in our region to ‘the dish of day’ according to food critic Jay Rayner, we’ll be giving you the opportunity to sample the dishes that wowed Rachel Allen and Glynn Purnell.

NEW! A Suffragette Luncheon 

As 2018 marks 100 years since (some) UK women got the vote we thought this would make a ideal theme for our first luncheon event. This menu takes inspiration from the women’s suffrage fund raising cookbooks that were produced in this country and in the USA during the early years of the 20th century. As it’s lunch we are serving 2 courses and coffee for the bargain price of £15 per head!

A Royal Wedding Supper

Prince Harry and Megan Markle are tying the knot on 19th May so we thought this would be a great opportunity to revisit the royal wedding breakfasts of yesteryear. This menu includes the 17th century forerunner of the wedding cake as a starter (don’t be alarmed – it’s a pie!) and a variation on a dessert that appeared on at least two of Queen Victoria’s offspring’s wedding feasts!

 Seafood Supper Inspired by Alexandre Dumas

A renowned writer in the 19th century Alexandre Dumas was also a gourmet who loved to cook. His Grande Dictionnaire de Cuisine was compiled during the last years of his life, many of which were spent living by the sea in Normandy where he died in 1870. This menu recreates some of his best loved seafood dishes which wouldn’t be out of place in a French bistro.

An Elizabethan Armada Supper

In 1588 the Spanish sent a fleet of ships to England to usurp the heretic Queen Elizabeth I. Fortunately, for her Phillip I’s plans were thwarted by Sir Francis Drake and the rest (as they say) is history. This menu is inspired by Tudor recipes but includes an element of playfulness. Expect canon balls, barnacle geese and a fool or two. The menu also includes a vegetarian option.
