Bumpkin Notting Hill is kicking off its autumn season of Supper Clubs on Tuesday, 22nd September, with a ‘Nose to Tail’ evening with Mark Hayward from renowned pork farmers, Dingley Dell in Suffolk. There will be just 30 places available at this intimate, pork-themed dinner, with tickets priced at £45 for the three-course menu together with matching English wines and ciders.
Bumpkin’s head chef, Romulo Silva, has put together a porker of a menu, with canapés including dry cured ham, pigs in blankets and scratchings to start the evening off. There are then four choices of starters and four choices of mains, running from ham hock terrine, old speckled hen chutney and piccalilli; to spiced crispy tounge with watercress, pear and walnut salad; or slow roasted belly, pan haggerty and caramelized quince; to a tasting board of spiced ribs, slow cooked shoulder, neck and heart pot with chips.
The ‘Nose to Tail’ Supper Club will be hosted in Bumpkin’s regal “Queen’s Room”, with drinks and nibbles served from 7.30pm, and dinner from 8pm. Mark will be talking about Dingley Dell between courses, before the dinner finishes with dessert and tea or coffee.
Epitomising Bumpkin’s close relationship with top quality, ethically sound farmers, Dingley Dell have been a member of the RSPCA’s Freedom Food scheme for over 10 years – and are firm believers that happy pigs and great flavour go hand in hand. Bumpkin is all about authentic, seasonal British food, with chefs searching the corners of the British Isles to find the best sustainable produce and recipes. Forthcoming Supper Clubs include an ‘Oktoberfest’ with Shepherd’s Neame.
