Plate Lickers, Saturday 19th May 2012

Pin It
Last night Jo and I hosted our first Plate Lickers Supper Club at the fantastic Balzano's in Cambridge for 28 guests. We served 5 courses of some of our favourite Eastern European food including my Chestnut & Spek soup. It was so fantastic being able to feed so many people and Jo was the perfect co-host. We had so much fun planning the menu and after reading the feedback book the beetroot chutney (Jo) and Apple Sorbet with Zubrowka (me) were the biggest hits.

A huge thank you to everyone that came and especially to Becky & Rocco at Balzano's for very kindly letting us use their beautiful cafe & deli as our venue, it was the perfect setting. Special thank you's and mentions go to Lucy & Will from The Cambridge Distillery for distilling a bespoke bottle of #platelickers gin just for us. I have been left in charge of the beautiful bottle with an agreement to save it purely for future event planning (and possibly pre-event nerves). Also a thank you to Ozzy for letting us use some of his photos.
