Vegan London Suppers
You may have heard about our collaboration, Around the World with FGV. It’s a dinner hosted by Fat Gay Vegan showcasing four vegan chefs in the month of March. The first dinner takes place on the 7th March. Head Chef Adrian Smith of Vegan Peasant Catering will be preparing one of our most popular dinners, a Caribbean inspired supper. On the 14th Vanessa of Essential Vegan will cook a Brazilian dinner, on the 21st Jhenn of Vegan Ronin will cook a Japanese dinner and on the 28th Kip of Messy Vegetarian Cook will cook a Thai meal. I envy the dinners who brought season tickets and will be dinning at all four events. It’s got to be the tastiest bargain around.
Back in 2010 we ran a successful monthly dinner series for about two years. It came to an end when Greens & Beans, a veggie restaurant and Dru yoga studio based in Euston decided to convert the space downstairs into a flat. We ran the Caribbean inspired supper at least two or three times, as it was our most popular. If you were able to snatch a ticket to Around the World with FGV before it sold out you are in for a treat.
If you missed out on this opportunity to book this dinner we have started a new dinner series, Saporous Suppers. You can join our twitter page or sign up for our newsletter to hear about upcoming events. Our next dinner takes place on the 22nd March.

London’s best vegan supper club is back! In the form of Saporous Suppers and will be held on 7th February at 7:30PM in Dalston. The location will remain a secret to all but those attending.
Some of you may remember the monthly supper club series we ran two years ago at a café in Drummond Street. Sadly this collaboration ended when the proprietors decided to renovate the space into a one bedroom flat.
Supperclub Vegan Peasant
To start we would like to run these events monthly, but if there is enough demand we we’d like to make them weekly.
This month’s menu has a fusion theme with ingredients from Italian, Central American and Cuban. Some times we focus on a particular country, but who’s to say where one food tradition ends and another begins. With every menu that we create our aim is to attentively cater to your taste buds by making sure you experience a balanced meal that’s full of flavour.
Start time is 7.30pm and Tickets are £35 each. Ticket numbers are limited and are on a first come first served basis and will not be available on the night. Booking closes three days before the event date. Be sure to book early.

Vegan Ronin Underground Supper Club

Vegan Ronin presents:
Vegan Ronin Underground Supper Club
Before we arrived I knew we were in for a treat. I’d been trying to get to the Vegan Ronin Japanese Supper Club for ages. If it wasn’t one thing, it was something else and before you knew it all the places would have sold out. But not this time, even before the event had gone live, I was on the case pestering Jhenn aka The Vegan Ronin via twitter to get the 411.
On a Tuesday evening in June we made our way to Barnet. At first we planned to cycle all the way there, but the weather had been so iffy and we figured that we’d be so ravenous that we’d forget our manners and the guests would think we were weird. So we cycled to Camden Town and took the train the rest of the way.
When we arrived one guest was already there and a couple arrived shortly after us. Jhenn and Ed, who was also hosting and cooking, offered us a number of drinks. I chose the umeshu, Jhenn’s homemade plum wine to start. What an amazing scent and refreshing taste… I vowed to try making some myself. While we waited for the last guest to arrive we seated ourselves at the table that opened onto the garden. We felt so lucky to experience dinning al fresco as the weather had been so crappy as of late. We began to speculate about what had happened to the remaining guest as he did not call, text or tweet. While we chatted we polished off the edamame and continued to imbibe. It wasn’t long before the gyoza were served and the last guest arrived. It was lucky for him as we would have gladly polished off this plateful of loveliness without him, just kidding.
After the gyoza, we tucked into a plate of yakitori, grilled “chicken” with teriyaki glaze (I must say creatively making use of Fry’s Pops); potato sarada which reminded me of an American-German style potato salad that has the addition of pickle or sweet relish; and inari zushi, sweet tofu pockets. This was a meal all by itself, but Jhenn and Ed didn’t stop there. The okonomiyaki, cabbage savoury pancakes, were a real treat. There is Abento in Covent Garden and the street food stall and residency in Clapton by Sho Foo Doh that specialise in making this dish, but neither offer a vegan option. My favourite dish was the takayaki, octopus-less konnyaku balls. Last year, I saw a lady making these at #R3D Market; I was memerised by her agile handiwork as she turned out these orbs of spherical perfection. Traditionally, this street food is filled with diced octopus and served with pickled ginger and spring onions. Takayaki are very tricky to make so props again to Jhenn and Ed. They got me thinking about so many delicious ways this dish could be appropriated. I’m gonna have to spring for a special takoyaki pan now. For dessert, we had ohagi, sweet bean and rice balls; maha keki, green tea steamed cake; daigaku imo, candied sweet potatoes; organic ichigo strawberries; and mugicha, barley tea.

Vegan Thanksgiving in London
Posted on October 31st, 2011 · By admin
Vegan Thanksgiving Day Dinner – an evening of fine food, fine friends and fine poetry.
Saturday 26th November 2011
You may have attended our very first Thanksgiving Day Feast all the way back in 2008 at the former Flea Pit on Columbia Road. Being both a Canadian and American day of eating you might at first think this holiday would be a full-on meat fest, but you would be, ooh, so wrong. Thanksgiving Day dinner is a real veggie lovers delight. As you get to feast on the best of what the season has to offer. The menu can only be described as ‘comfort harvest food’, but with a contemporary style.
Besides delicious food, you are in for a very special treat as poet Sam Berkson aka Angry Sam will perform, so in more ways than one the evening promises to be a unique dinning experience.
Sam Berkson aka Angry Sam
“Angry Sam’s first poetry performance ended in a fight. Undeterred, he’s moved onto perform at gigs and festivals around the UK and abroad winning plaudits for a style that combines erudition, eloquence and relevance. His work is at times humourous, political and gentle, showing both a deep knowledge of English poetry and a love of hiphop music.”
“His poems push your perceptions of both places and people, doing what all truly excellent poetry should do: make you see the world in a different light” – Sabotage Magazine
“Angry Sam kills the crowd softly with rare wit and a laidback style that softens the knife wounds left by his acid political poetics and searing urban imagery”- Martin Daws, U.K performance poet.
To find out more about what Sam is up to you can check out his blog
Celebrate Thanksgiving Day with us Saturday 26 November. To book tickets
Taste of Autumn II
Posted on October 28th, 2011 · By admin
Thanks to everyone who made it out to Taste of Autumn I. It was a wonderful evening and a great time was had by all. The menu selection was outstanding and I think you will agree that Dru Café is a wonderful space as it is just the right size to retain that homey supper club feel. If you missed it not to worry as Taste of Autumn II is coming up on the 12 November. You may have guessed that as well as mushrooms; chestnuts are my next favorite ‘peasant’ food, which is splendid as we are now in the heart of chestnut season. Check out this video on the @guardian website with Bruno Zoccola & Tim Hayward. They wax on about the chestnut season in Italy and stuff their faces with every manner of chestnut concoction. Argh! how it fills me with food envy. They even manage to fit in an instructional demo about scoring and roasting chestnuts too. So, I think next year I will take a fall trip to the Tuscany region. Anyone care to join me.

Gourmet 5-course harvest dinner
Posted on October 19th, 2011 · By admin
It’s October the start of the truffle season, it’s harvest time and it’s time for our 5-course gourmet harvest supper. The autumn season is one of my favorite times of the year, but I am sure it is the same for you too. It’s no wonder we take pleasure in this time of year as so many activities and experiences revolve around food. Food has the ability to transport you back in time. Walnuts take me back to Poitier and the time I spent WWOOFing. I remember trying to figure out yet another recipe to make use of all those walnuts. Come and experience this year’s harvest with us.
Here’s the menu for this Saturday’s 5-course gourmet autumn feast. As usual, it is BYOB and never a corkage fee.
