Having been thwarted by snow 5 weeks earlier we finally got our first supper of 2013 under our collective belts on May 4th.
We were at a new venue, we fed 18 guests, it all went vaguely swimmingly. As usual our attempts to photograph our food were a little bit haphazard, thankfully Tom Saunders, one of our guests was on the ball. Thanks to him for these images.
Rhubarb bellinis and parsley and feta parcels
Braised chicory with dill sauce
Porchetta with asparagus, barley, wild garlic and broad bean and tomato vinaigrette
or Pea and ricotta ravioli with asparagus
followed by buttermilk icecream with babas and rhubarb
tea or coffee with chocolate biscuits.
Tom’s plate testifies that his main course, at least, went down well
Now to plan the next one.
Our supper on March 23rd is now fully booked. We look forward to seeing everyone who has booked places there and then.
As this has booked out so quickly we’ll look at adding another future date as soon as we can.

We’ve consulted our resident astrologer and, as the stars are aligned, we can bring Marches Supper back into our lives.
The first supper of 2013 will be on Saturday March 23rd in a new venue, close to Ludlow. Format will be roughly the same as previous suppers: pre dinner drink and nibbles, starter, main and pudding followed by tea/coffee and something moreish and sweet to see you on your way. The suggested contribution will be £25 per head.
If you would like to book a place please e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org – if you have any dietary requirements please let us know when you book.
We look forward to seeing you on the 23rd.

we are waking from our slumber of 2012 and have a potential new venue for 2013 that we are very excited about. We’ll post details about it as soon as we have confirmed . . . we’re probably looking at early March for our first supper.
Marches Supper Society is on hiatus at the moment . . . life is getting in the way. We hope to be back, fighting fit in the not too distant future.
Last night was our first supper of 2012; hosted at the same venue as our very first supper last year, the Granary at Hungerford Mill. A record number of attendees (19) and despite the usual hiccups involved in cooking in a kitchen with which we are not 100% familiar (cue text messages to select attendees to bring sugar) it went pretty smoothly.
The menu comprised of:
Campari, blood orange and soda
Fennel & black pepper biscuits
Wild garlic and Lancashire tarts
Woodpigeon, braised lentils, confit tomatoes and black pudding crumbs
Mango, labneh, almond cake and rose
After something of a small hiatus we are back. The first Marches Supper of 2012 will be held on March 24th at the Granary in Hungerford (the same venue as the very first Marches Supper). In an inflation busting move the price of the supper will be the same as 2011: £25 per person. This will be 3 course plus something to nibble before and something sweet to accompany tea and coffee. Menu planning will commence shortly. If you want to book in please let us know and advise us if you have any dietary requirements at the same time.
