Last night we hosted our most recent supper upstairs at De Greys on Broad Street, a perfect venue for us that we were very grateful to have the use of. It also allowed us the joys of a proper industrial kitchen and the capacity to cater for 32 guests.
As usual, the opportunities to photograph the food were fleeting – they may exist and, if found, will be added to this blog.
Our guests ate/drank:
Quince cordial and sparkling wine
Pigeon, radiccio and lentil
Radiccio, salsify and goat’s cheese
Jacob’s ladder, mushroom and truffle puree, cabbage and smoked bacon, beef dripping polenta
Open chestnut lasagne of onion squash, cavolo nero, mushroom and marjoram
Pear and hazelnut cake with pear sorbet
Tea/Coffee with chocolate truffles and salted caramels
If that meat main sounds a little bit fancier than our normal fare . . . . it was . . . and it was all down to our guest chef for the evening, Mr Will Holland; whose appearance and involvement we’d done quite a good job of keeping hush hush until the evening.
Our next MSS is this Thursday at a venue in the centre of Ludlow. It is now sold out and I am mentally slapping myself for not having posted details about it on here. If you would like to be on our mailing list for future suppers (the route through which we filled the places for this week) please drop us an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org
Not to rub salt in the wound, but this week’s supper is looking pretty good. The usual seasonal, local fare and we are joined by a guest chef and extra pair of hands helping us out with front of house duties.

Ok, the plan was always to make this a monthly adventure but . . . if the first event had gone disastrously we always had the option of permanently kicking our collective heels and not making it a regular occurrence. However . . . people seemed to like it.
So, with great imaginary fanfare, we can announce that the second Marches Supper Society event will be held on August 13th* – bear with us as we haven’t yet confirmed the venue, but will do so soon. The venue will be nearer to Ludlow than the last event – it may even be held outside, but we’re not counting any chickens on this front – there will be a suggested donation of £25, there will be 3 courses plus bits before and bits after, there will be fun and jollity aplenty. Come and join us.
Contact us either via twitter or e-mail us at email@example.com to book a place.
*please note we have moved this event to August 13th from August 6th – weddings etc got in the way of the 6th
Our first event will take place on June 4th.
We are fiddling with the menu as we speak, but rest assured, there will be 3 courses with something to nibble on before and something to scoff alongside a coffee/tea at the end of the evening. The suggested donation for the food will be in the region of £25 – it won’t be more than this but we may be able to bring it in under this. We are not licensed so please bring your own wine/beer/cider/alcopops etc.
The venue is in the Corvedale approx 15 minutes from Ludlow.
7.30 for 8.00
It’s going to be great.

*newsflash* – final costings are in and the suggested contribution will now be £20
