After the success of my first two supper clubs in Folkestone, I thought I’d try something a bit different heading into 2015. When the hustle and bustle of the Christmas period starts to die down, the post-holiday come down can become a serious affliction – especially when it starts getting dark at 3pm. The best way to remedy this is to have something to look forward to in January, and my next supper club is it!
Salt – the element that brings forth and magnifies flavor. Traded for centuries and at one time more expensive than gold, salt is the one thing every good kitchen cannot be without. Basic as it is, it is essential to the enjoyment of food. Salt in Canterbury is also basic, but not in the not-trying-very-hard sort of way. It’s more like they’ve taken a restaurant and stripped it back so that no element of the building or furniture distract from the reason you are there: the food.
