Winter Supper Club
Wednesday 22nd December
The Floristry, 18 Gough Street
A table of people, strangers at first, are brought together over the course of a winter’s night. Guests are welcomed through the threshold with a ceremony ritual and festive cocktail before gathering for a seasonal and warming four course meal inspired by the Winter Solstice. Set within The Floristry’s Meadow Room with wild-inspired tools for ritual, host Alison Tan will lead and guide guests through a culinary experience prepared by chef Agnes Lessa.
In folklore the forest is known as a place of magic and mystery, a wild unknown land of both refuge and adventure. This season’s Supper Club is inspired by an enchanted trip into the woods during the transformative period of Winter Solstice and by the end of the night the unknown becomes a space of feasting, reflection and celebration.
Guests are welcomed through the threshold with a ritual ceremony using Floristry botanicals and a warming cocktail garnished with edible blossoms.
