RUBY & PICKLES’ FIRST BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION

 Ruby & Pickles Supper Club

 

Last night the wonderful Ruby & Pickles celebrated their first birthday by hosting an evening of delicious dishes, bubbly, tunes and general good times at the uber cool loft style space Blank 100 in Dalston.

If you haven’t already heard of Ruby & Pickles then 1) Where have you been!? and 2) R&P was formed in the Spring of 2016 by friends Sareta & Jasel who wanted to put their love of cooking to work by creating themed supper clubs around London that are all homemade, Vegetarian/Vegan and sold out (book quickly!). 

Previous events have included Afternoon Tea on a barge in East London and an Indo-Scots Burns Night Supper. Seriously, get on their mailing list so you can hear about new events first!

THE VENUE

We arrived, uncooly, exactly on time and were greeted at the door by the ever friendly Sareta. We were ushered through the warm, welcoming space into the main area which was set up with lots of seating for the sold out event. We enjoyed a glass of champagne and said hello to the lovely Jasel whilst the DJ played a perfect soundtrack of laid back tracks to really set the mood.

I’ve only been to one Supper Club before and I’m already a big fan, they are an excellent place to mingle with likeminded strangers if that’s your thing but you’re also very welcome to hang out with who you came with if you’re more of an awkward introvert like me.

THE MENU 

We started off with a homemade, cumin infused taco, stuffed with the very tasty Rajma Masala (Kidney Bean Curry), Pickled Cabbage, Yellow Tomato Chutney and Cashew Crem.

I’d heard a whisper from Ruby & Pickles on Twitter that they would be making a Kidney Bean Curry for the event and I’d been dreaming about it all week ~ it did not disappoint. It was so rich and flavourful, then with the added tangyness of the pickled cabbage on top, the fruity tomato chutney and the fresh cashew drizzle. Utterly perfect.

Luckily for you Sareta has shared the recipe for the Curry over on her blog. I think it’s going to become one of my go-to recipes!

 

 

Next up to tantalise our tastebuds, the Biryani. Spoilers, I totally had seconds. I would have had thirds but I had to rush off to start my 16 hour commute back to the suburbs.

Packed full of corn, aubergine, peas, cauliflower and carrot and spiced to perfection with the fanciest spice of them all, Saffron.

There was also serve yourself selection of pickled carrots with chillies and a cucumber raita topped with pomegranate seeds so we could pimp our biriyanis up. I went up first and it took A LOT of restraint to not just take everything!

Ruby & Pickles have a different pickle at every event and the Carrot Pickle was so spicy and so flavoursome. The campaign to get R&P’s Pickles stocked in every shop across the land starts right here!!

To round off the evening we were treated to these enormous dark chocolate and chilli truffles which had been rolled in pistachio and topped with a pinch of Ottolenghi sweet chilli peppers.

The truffles were SO creamy and velvety, the pistachio added a savoury, salty crunch and the spice from the chilli tied everything together.

The perfect way to end a wonderful evening.
