Sing For Your Supper - The One Mile Bakery Supper Club

The dining room, One Mile Bakery Supper Club Cardiff
Last night was the inaugural One Mile Bakery Supper Club and the theme was 'summer' so in a season of record temperatures in Cardiff, naturally there was heavy rain all day and most of the evening. In preparation I Googled the term 'supper club' and was amused to discover that I would be expected to 'fraternise with other guests' but then these events are as much about socialising as food.

As the guests arrived we were greeted with an aperitif and then moved into the dining room for our first look at the 5 course menu (£30pp and bring your own wine).

The first course was a light summer salad of watermelon, roasted baby beetroot and homemade ricotta with nasturtium flowers, served with a selection of OMB breads.

The fish course was an intense Marseille style fish soup with gurnard and mullet served with garlic rouille (a pungent garlic mayonnaise style sauce) croutons and gruyere.

The meat course was soft, braised pork belly with fennel and lime salted apples, jasmine rice and a very tasty side of sesame greens.

The cheese board was made up of Irish Artisan Cheeses which was served with figs and an apple and mint chutney.

By this point I was threatening to unbutton something I was so full, but there was still dessert to tackle. Chocolate three ways, a verrine, an excellent tonka bean creme brûlée and frozen berries with hot white chocolate sauce.

The food was all very good, the effort that had gone into the menu was evident and as always, the suppliers carefully chosen and featured a number of local producers. Most of all the evening was great fun and I met some lovely people and laughed. A lot.

The next supper club is planned for 2nd of November and guests will be drawn by ballot from emails to
