Paleo Supper Club – write up
On friday night Wonder Woman Workshops UK hosted our first ‘paleo supper club’. The Scullery Cafe, where we held the evening, is somewhere we frequent a lot. We host networking events there, I see clients in the parlour (a private room at the back) and we both go in most days for lunch and to get some work done. We love it! What I love most about The Scullery is that I can shift the menu around to suit my nutritional needs (e.g. paleo), and when we suggested a WWWUK supper club, Colin (owner and chef) suggested that we do it paleo style and we jumped at the chance.
Colin and I sat down to discuss the menu and we settled on a chargrilled halloumi starter, a choice of chicken or seabass main and either a gooey flourless chocolate cake or local honey panacotta for dessert. What I was most looking forward to was the fresh baked paleo bread Colin was going to make, and it definitely disappoint.
As we arrived at The Scullery on Friday evening we found most of the ladies already in their seats indulging in a drink (or 2) and once everyone was sat down, we started on the bread with olive oil and balsamic or butter. The bread was amazing and I hugely appreciated Colin making it as its not something I will usually attempt as I find it quite tricky.
The wine and conversation were flowing as we were served our starter, which again tasted delicious and I could have easily eaten 2. Shortly after our main meals arrived with impeccable presentation and taste.
The dessert portion of a meal is always my favourite, and even more so when I can tell myself that its actually ‘healthy’ dessert. I had opted for the chocolate cake which was to die for, but I did taste the panacotta which was equally as good and seemed to be devoured by everyone who chose it.
More lively chit chat continued between the ladies, some of whom had never met, and others who were catching up after not seeing each other for a while. Before we knew it it was time to leave, some continued on to the pub next door whilst the majority headed home in what can only be described as a ‘food coma’.
All in all a great night was had by everyone and we have received some fantastic feedback! Heres to the next one!
