Last Saturday saw the celebration of The Spice Club’s 2nd Birthday! We celebrated in style by hosting a home-made, grand, Indian feast with a menu featuring a mixture of classic Spice Club favourites and new dishes too. It doesn’t feel all that long ago when I approached my Mum with (what I thought was) a simple proposition…inviting strangers into our dining room for dinner. Of course without hindrance my Mum being the sensible and responsible parent she is, said no. After a little (a lot of) persuasion however, we were on the way to establishing our very own underground restaurant from our home! At our very first event we hosted a supper club for 8 guests.. 2 years on, we now host monthly dinners for 30 guests. I can’t believe how much we’ve grown over the last 2 years and would like to take a moment to say a big THANK YOU to all of our guests who have dined with us and supported us so far! Without you, we wouldn’t be where we are now! We’ve shared a lot of amazing moments with you over the last couple of years and as a result have made so many friends.
Of course, hosting a restaurant from your own home doesn’t come without its “interesting” moments..we’ve had everything from the BYOB policy getting out of hand to guests turning up at our door on the wrong day! Each one of our supper clubs is a special event and we put our heart into every single one to make sure every single one of our guests leaves feeling well and truly satisfied :). We had a blast at our celebratory birthday supper club last Saturday. Some guest comments from the evening included:
“We had a fabulous time, the food was out of this world!” Runa N
“One of the best dining experiences of my life” Jim G
“A fantastic evening, can’t wait to book with you again” Joanna W
I’ll stop waffling for now and let the photos below do the rest of the talking!
Before I do sign off though, The Spice Club has been nominated as “Food Pioneer” in the prestigious Manchester Food & Drink Awards 2012. If you would be so kind as to vote for us, it would be much appreciated (we’ll slip you an extra chappati or 2 as a thank you!).
