The July edition of the West Syrian Supper is here! Feast on mouthwatering Syrian fare in the gorgeous setting of Tab X Tab, all the while raising funds for the Hands Up Foundation, to send to some of Syria's most vulnerable.
The Syrian Supper Club started in 2012 when four friends who loved Syria decided to do something to show friends back in Damascus that they hadn't been forgotten despite the unfolding conflict. What began as ad-hoc dinners in people's kitchens turned into a hugely successful monthly supper club in the E5 Bakehouse in Hackney, where guests are treated to delicious Syrian cooking and a lovely evening in a pop up restaurant. Keen to raise even more, the Supper Club team has now expanded from Hackney to South London, West London and Bristol!
The maestro behind the wonderful dishes served at SSC West is Irem Aksu. Irem is a former news reporter, and currently works as a London-based chef. Her work as a chef has the aim of exploring and sharing the foods of many different minority cultures. Each menu she creates for Syrian Supper Club West will have some inspirations from South Eastern cuisine of Turkey as well as Syrian’s staple foods – the region shares a long border with Syria as well as rich culinary heritage over centuries. While Irem is cooking up a storm, our fabulous supper club manager, Cleo, takes care of the event running. Cleo has a history of hosting Syrian Supper Clubs. During her PhD research she held one in India and successfully introduced the students at Cambridge to mutabul shawander and jewelled cous cous. Irem and Cleo is not a team up to be missed!
We like to place guests at our Syrian Suppers, so please make sure you let us know in the notes when booking if you'd like to be seated with particular people who have booked separately.
We do also cater for vegan/veggie and dairy/nut free, so please highlight this in the notes when booking so that the right food comes your way.
Don't forget to BYOB!
In terms of cancellation, we can offer a full refund on a ticket as long as you let us know at least three days before the event. This is to ensure that we don't end up with empty seats round the dinner table, and each supper raises the maximum it can for the aid projects we fund in Syria.
