Hemsley Hemsley Supper Club

No comments:
Last week I was lucky enough to go to the Hemsley Hemsley supper club held in Notting Hill. Tickets went on sale a while ago and a dear friend and I thought we would book in a moment of excitement for a few months time for what was sure to be a night to remember.

The Hemsley sisters are two foodies who are lifestyle and food bloggers for Vogue.

Their presence as grown a lot over the past five years and they are the two behind spiralising all your veg becoming a thing and a must have kitchen gadget.

Earlier this year they have created their own brand of spiraliser which you can get here...

They focus on food that is good for your gut. That is their mantra and they have been true to it since they began in 2010.

Last Wednesday we headed over to Paradise by Way to enjoy a night of healthy food and to hopefully come away with an extremely happy gut and a few tips and tricks to put into practise to a healthier lifestyle once home.

We arrived early, in fact the first for the night and even before one of the sisters had arrived, we settled in the corner to people watch while we waited for everyone else.

Paradise by Way its self is extremely impressive, huge ornate jars are filled with beautiful blooms and on the roof there is a terrace which sounds a perfect spot to enjoy these beautiful long summer evenings than become the norm during the summer months.

At around 7ish we were all lead into the restaurant where agin flowers were festooned around the place, scented candles glistened from every table and we took our seats. 

A lavender, blueberry & lime cocktail was brought round, vodka was an optional addition.. of course we both opted in...
With thirst being quenched we started get to grips with our menu and selection of food ahead, some dishes recognisable from their cookbook The Art Of Eating Well and others specially prepared for the night. 

Melissa and Jasmine talked us through the menu and each dish and emphasised the importance of understanding your gut and understanding 'Fat is Good' something they really emphasised, recommeding we all carry around a small jar of coconut oil to splash into a lunch time miso soup for an extra injection of goodness.

Once the girls had finished talking, everyone around the room vowing to change thier ways the starters arrived.

 The whole menu took the form of sharing dishes and platters and enough to feed to untill content rather than full - another important asepct of the night and also to chew properly to get every ounze of goodness from each bite.

Colourful dips and the prettiest dipping tools to match...

Next the girls famous Bone Broth. Traditional broth with veg and chilli. Really delicious.

Next all the mains, roasted veg, cauliflower bulgar salad, sesame and soba noodle salad and beef meatballs.

After lots of chatter the girls made their way around each table and chatted about tips and tricks to bring a little health into our daily lifes.

A snack on the go - a red pepper rinsed and some houmus, some slices of apple and nut butter, a few squares of dark chcoclate for a little kick of energy and bone broth wherever and whenever possible!

Pudding was then served, delicious Pineapple Carpacchio - sounds extremely fancy and probably the easiest of dishes, you can find the whole method in The Art Of Eatting Well.

Accompanied by thier paradise bars, imagine a bounty but with out the bad sugar and of course no guilt.

Finally we finshed with Pep up tea. A spicy mixture of hot water, lemon, cayenne and turmeric. Really delicious, a kick for the metabolism and fantastic for digestion as you head home to bed.

A evening full of good food and one where you come away with all sorts of tips and tricks you can share with friends so we can all have healthier guts in a world full of fads and non-fats!

Keep a look out on the Hemsely sister instagram to see when thwey will be holding their next supper clubs and be sure to get there quickly, tickets sold out in record time for this one!

Happy eatting and long live a healthy gut!
