Tonight’s supper club hosts were The Italian supper club, a group of Italians who live in London and love to cook. They made fresh pasta lasagne al pesto, pane cunzato and rose water pannacotta. Cinzia Ghighoni, the new head chef of the table cafe, baked ciabatta and made an octopus salad. We started with a Rebujito, my favourite summer time cocktail, with Tio Pepe fino sherry, lemonade, and plenty of ice.
As I left Stratford Old Town Hall I walked through Westfields Shopping centre to the tube. People on roller skates whipped past, there is a whole skating culture there at night. Worth a visit for the balletic moves in and out of the shoppers, pliés next to the pound shop, an arabesque outside the fried chicken joint.
Book for opening night on Friday.
