Description

Welcome to the Persian Nights Supper Club.

It is my pleasure to create  a sumptuous supper night using some of the most wonderful and delicious ingredients on earth.  The idea for this magical night came about during a conversation  about raw food and yoga with one my lovely friends. So, thank you to my friend for inspiring me to host this night. I am so excited and am looking forward to it immensely. To  get  everyone in the mood I recommend listening to this wonderful work by Rimsky-Korsakov which, without question, captures the intrigue and wonder of the story of the beguiling Scheherazade. Also, it happens to be  one of my favourite pieces of classical music. Close your eyes and you can imagine yourself bewitched by Scheherazade's tales of  romance, passion, desire, tension, just like the the king so fearful of betrayal.


 The scene for this supper club is set against a backdrop of the  many tales from Persian folklore and myths. Stories such as One Thousand and One Nights –as told by Scheherazade. These tales were compiled in Arabic during the Islamic Golden Age.  It is often known in English as the Arabian Nights and came to include classic stories such as "Aladdin's Wonderful Lamp", "Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves", and "The Seven Voyages of Sinbad the Sailor".

 Persian culture has inspired many art forms  including opera, ballet, art, mythology. A wealth of culture as rich and varied as the food.  Many coveted ingredients are native to Iran, including pistachios, almonds, sesame, walnuts, saffron, mint, oranges, dates, pomegranates and grapes. Iran has a variable climate with four distinct seasons, and unlike other parts of the Middle East, where the dry terrain limited what food could be grown, the ancient Persians transformed vast stretches of arid land into fertile oases via underground aquifers that drew melted snow water into the desert. A bright, sensuous, fruit-and-herb filled cuisine was born and continues to be enjoyed today.

 The street markets are filled a variety of vibrant foods, brought to life by the abundance of herbs and spices.



In the words of the 13th Century Persian Poet,  Rumi

“The lion is most handsome when looking for food”  so I expect that we will all be looking and feeling  fabulous on the evening of 21st May



The Persian Nights raw food supper club will be based on the classic ingredients from Persia and will include fabulous dishes such as hummus, flatbreads, falafel, jeweled rice, kebabs, baklava, halva and of course, Persian chai. I will be featuring some key, classic ingredients such as those listed above, whilst at the same time keeping it raw, vegan and free from refined sugar.


 And when you crush an apple with your teeth, say to it in your heart,

      "Your seeds shall live in my body,

      And the buds of your tomorrow shall blossom in my heart,

      And your fragrance shall be my breath, And together we shall rejoice through all the seasons."

 From The Prophet by Kahlil Gibran

 I hope that you will be inspired to book to come to this magical evening. I look forward to welcoming you  to this beautiful raw food supper club.
