Throughout the year we host Supper Clubs at our shop in Margate. Menus are seasonal, using recipes from my family and Campania, and sometimes with friends.

Our good friend and wonderful chef Jessica Leah hails from Malta so we’ll be cooking up a typical Maltese family feast!
"Even though I've been a professional chef for more than 15 years, I haven't had the opportunity to showcase Maltese cuisine professionally. This will be the first time I've ever seen proper Maltese home cooking in a restaurant outside of tiny Malta. Maltese food is so positively impacted by southern Italian cuisine, as well as its Middle Eastern and Arabic influence. This is why this type of food fits in so seamlessly with Simona's classic cooking style. The more we've spoken to each other about food, the more we realise we're coming from the same place..".
6 courses for £50pp. No dietary changes for this Supper Club we’re afraid as the dishes are what they are.
