Last Saturday I had dinner at my friends’ Marie and Emeline for the launch of their summer supper club at London French Kitchen HQ, London Bridge. It was all about French food!
The 3-course menu sent to us via email a few days beforehand, promised a tasty meal with Mediterranean notes. When we arrived, the table was nicely set with cute details and beautiful flowers, including our names written on jars of home made jam as ‘place cards’, which we were to bring back home with us. We were welcomed with a nice bubbly cocktail made with home made rosemary syrup. It was a first time for me to try such syrup. Emeline was happy to share with us her tips, which makes me want to try to make a syrup too and play with other herbs…
The food was delicious: the fish was perfectly cooked and I very much enjoyed the tarte tatin (I had not eaten one in years) the apples were just melting…Whilst Emeline was preparing the plates on a very timely manner, Marie was paying attention our glasses were never empty. Top service and lively atmosphere throughout the evening.
I loved the little attention of leaving with a bag full of home made goodies (scones, cookies and the apricot vanilla jam). So the next morning, I could not resist trying the jam with toasted bread and butter for my breakfast. Yummy!

If you are a foodie and want to try a new experience, do not hesitate to contact the wonderful hosts Marie and Emeline for their next supper club dates. Everything (except the bread) is home made and tasty!
Last but not least, if you are looking for the best baguette in London, go to the French bakery Aux Pains de Papy 5 minutes walk from King’s Cross. They make proper artisan bread and great croissants! Plus the team is really friendly.
Have a nice rest of the week. S
