20 nights. 20 supper clubs. 20 cuisines. Around a 15 metre worldscape table.
During the games. I’ll be blogging every night, our progress around the world. See you here and see you there! Book now!
The food will be not only West African (and folks, a little geography lesson here, Mauritania is not the same as Mauritius) but raw and vegan. Intriguing!
Guest Chef: The Italian Supper Club was established in 2011 by three Italian food and wine lovers, Silvio, Chiara and Toto. Their aim is to bring the unique atmosphere and authentic flavour of the ‘Bel Paese’ to East London. Chef Toto will be making fresh pasta for 80 people. Rather him than me. Should be delicious!

Cinzia is the new head chef at Southwark favourite The Table, where she has just put together a modern Italian menu, using top quality British ingredients. Originally from Milan, she has been based in London for the past 22 years. Her impressive pedigree includes working with the likes of Angela Hartnett and at Soho’s Duck Soup.
