Following on from the success of Bishopston Supper Club, Bishopston Tea Party and the wine and cider dinners, I thought I’d like to give Sunday lunches a try. I’ve always been a fan of the humble Sunday roast, when done well it is an utter joy and the perfect comfort food especially now Autumn has well and truly arrived.
A Sunday roast is a particular treat for me as I’ve been working most Sundays for the last 15 years! When I am free there is a lot of pressure to find the right place, the perfect company, at a time and price that suits all. Quite often we (a group of fellow Sunday roast appreciating friends and I) struggle to find pubs/restaurants still serving (good) food by the time we have all got our arses in gear sometime in the afternoon. Out of this frustration, I decided that if I wanted to have a nice, relaxed, family-style Sunday lunch with my friends I may as well cook and host it myself.
So I shall be hosting a Sunday Lunch Club at my home in Bishopston once a month during the winter months starting from 16th October, arrival from 2pm. There will be a roast dinner (veggie options available, please ask when booking) with all the trimmings, and a simple dessert, with coffee to finish all for £15 per person (suggested donation). Please feel free to bring your own drinks, papers, slippers etc. and prepare to relax in front of the fire for a leisurely Sunday afternoon.
NB. All ingredients will be locally sourced and seasonal. No lumpy fake gravy, frozen veg, grey meat or soggy Yorkshires. Guests will sit and eat together family-style. Specific dietary requirements catered for, just ask when booking. The address (BS7) will be emailed nearer the time.
On Sunday 16th October I served roast 38-day dry-aged rib of beef with Yorkshire pudding, goose fat-roasted potatoes, red wine & elderberry jus with various seasonal veggies, and apple & quince crumble with rosehip ice cream for pudding.
