It’s starting to feel just the slightest bit more Autumnal today but it is October and before we know it the weather will be back to its cold, rainy self and it will be getting dark at 6pm again. However, as the email we’ve just recieved at Spoon HQ points out- Autumn isn’t all bad.
‘It really is a great season to get stuck into after the usual disappointment of summer. Because we can truly begin to eat again. Screw you, light alfresco bites with yer picnic blankets, wasps and pale, pasty legs. Give me the stodge, give me the lard and give me a huge fluffy jumper to hide it all because Winter is coming and we need to store up all that fat.’
I couldn’t have said it better myself. If you agree too and are looking forward to some Autumn overeating then you should probably book your place at The Great Food Urchin Autumnal Feast on the 15th October.
The delicious sounding menu is as follows:
Warm Pheasant Salad with Poached Pear, Cobnuts and Pomegranate
Pork Chop Roast with Cox’s Apples, Crispy Sage and Cider Gravy, with Mashed Allotment Spuds and Steamed Allotment Greens.
Baked Blackberry and Sticky Stem Ginger Pudding with Golden Syrup and Cream.
There is a suggested donation of £20 per head which also includes homemade sourdough. Vegetarian options are also available.
The following dates of upcoming Food Urchin Supper Clubs have also just been announced:
29th October – The Great Food Urchin Halloween Feast
12th November – You Are Offal But I Like You
3rd December – The Great Food Urchin Christmas Pit Feast
Menus are not yet confirmed but watch this space…
A whole host of events to look forward to! For more information and to book your space at any of these, please contact foodurchin (@) gmail.com
