Platelickers 9th November- Childhood Memories

Pin It
On Friday night we hosted our 4th Platelickers Supper Club in the lovely surroundings of St Pauls Church. This time around we rolled up our sleeves and had a go at black pudding scotch eggs which seemed to go down very well! The rest of the menu consisted of-

White Russian Milk Bottles
Black Pudding Scotch Eggs, Pesto Pinwheel Lollipops & Cheese with Pineapple Chutney
Boston Baked Beans on Sourdough Toast
Slow Roasted Lamb Shoulder Shepherds Pie with Potato, Parsnip & Celeriac Mash
with Braised Red Cabbage & Apple
Jack's Gelato Elderflower Sorbet
Apple & Pear Crumble with Homemade (Crack) Custard
Chocolate & Coconut Meringue Petit Fours

The lamb was from the lovely Northrops Butchers on Mill Road and was slow cooked for 4 hours in red wine with lots of delicious vegetables before being turned into a Shepherd's pie. Jo also got to put her new ricer to good use by making a potato, parsnip & celeriac mash. The shepherd's pie was served along with braised red cabbage which was cooking with balsamic vinegar & apple. On a separate note, please join in on our hashtag #deargodimmiddleaged if you are into ricers, aprons & heated blankets just as much as we are!

We also served up a pear and apple crumble. The crumble top was mixed with flaked almonds which added a lovely crunch. We overheard one platelicker say that it was the best they'd ever eaten which made us very happy indeed. The custard was made the previous day and we nicknamed it crack custard because of just how addictive it was. Thankfully even after the trials there was plenty left for the evening!
We finished the evening with a little selection of mini meringues topped with flaked coconut & chocolate. It was fantastic to be back in the church again especially after their fantastic refurb. It felt really special to be able to dine in there, a huge thanks to John Quysner for making it possible.
We have just started out preparations for the next supper club happening on the 24th November. This one is fully booked but we do have a reserve list set up so if you would like to be added to it please email us at We will be taking a little supper club break in December but will be back in January so please join our mailing list if you would like to be the first to know about any new events.
