Pepper Party! A supper club hosted by Anna Sulan Masing
- Supper Club
On March 20th six renowned London chefs and food writers are gathering for a four-course dinner to celebrate the wonderful but often underappreciated spice: pepper!
Writer and academic Dr Anna Sulan Masing has gathered her favourite London food people for a dinner on Monday 20 March that focuses on her favourite spice - pepper. Black and white pepper is often overlooked or underappreciated and yet is a staple on most dining tables.
Gathering for the Pepper Party are Mandy Yin, chef/owner of much-loved Malaysian Laksa restaurant Sambal Shiok; award-wining cook and writer Melissa Thompson, whose recent cookbook Motherland has delighted many; Tomas Heale chef/owner of renown Vegan restaurant Näifs; writer and community organiser Jenny Lau of platform Celestial Peach; and pastry chef Chloe-Rose Crabtree, famed for her crème brûlée cookies at Bake St - are each cooking a dish that highlights or pushes our ideas of pepper, and what pepper can be as a flavour.
We'll be curating a drinks list to work with the dishes, featuring cocktails, wines and beers that will play with heat to tantalise your tastebuds.
It all starts at 6.30pm - get your tickets now for an indulgent and spicy night.

A first appearance at Spiritland for Marcus Graham.
Attracted by Belgian New Beat, Marcus visited Belgium in 1989 and moved to Brussels in 1991 to work initially with distribution and marketing for Crammed Discs. The beginning of 1993 saw a move to R&S in Ghent then a move back to London in 1994 to launch ITP / Honeydipped Records.
The late 90's and early 00's saw travel, burn-out and recovery while the world became an ever increasing digital space. 2008 or so saw the start of a resurgence in film photography and vinyl or perhaps "It never went away".
Music and photography is one and the same for Marcus, light and shade, rhythm, position and timing. Something innate, passionate and lasting.
