Another week, another realisation that weeks don’t actually exist for us because we’re open 7 days a week. (Shout-out to all hospitality workers out there. Or as we like to call them- hospitality comrades!)
Friday and Saturday saw a welcome return to the much-sought-after Spoon Supper Club. Five courses were served with Michelin-star-worthy flare (and without the toffy pretence) to a full house of hungry Spooners. The music was mellow, the wine flowed and the compliments came in thick and fast. “Oh my god that was the best meal of my life!”…. “My food baby looks like it’s in its final trimester at this point but I’m soooo happy”… “Wow. You’re one good looking member of staff!” Thanks guys, we really appreciate it.
As this is the first edition of The Weekly Spoon, we thought we’d fill you in on the context of our Sup-sup-supper Club! We like to eat here at Spoon. We really do. Like, our day is basically ‘Wake up. OMG yay BREAKFAST! Coffee coffee coffee… mundane waiting, mundane waiting, mundane waiting… LUNCHTIME YES! Ooooh choices choices choices!... mundane waiting, mundane waiting, mundane waiting…. IT’S DINN-AH TIIIIIME OOOOOH BABAY!....mundane waiting, mundane sleep, plan breakfast for next day in sleep.’ For us here at Spoon, mealtimes are when the real business goes down.
Enter: Chef Greg.
(A re-imagining of a conversation between Mumma Spoon, Super Annie and Chef Greg.)
MUMMA SPOON: Do you- Gregory- may I call you Gregory?
GREG: I’d rather you d-
MUMMA SPOON: Gregory. Do you cook?
GREG: Yes. Well. Yeah, I’m a chef.
ANNIE: Yes…. But.. do you cook?
*ANNIE AND MUMMA S. PEER DOWN THEIR NOSES AT GREG*
GREG: I… I cook, yes. That is literally what I do.
MUMMA SPOON: Annie. I don’t think he understands us. *Winks at Annie*
ANNIE: *slams hand on counter* GREGORY! WE’VE ASKED DO YOU COOK?! WE ARE TALKING COOOOOKING. VERSITILITY. QUALITY! WE ARE TALKING EGGS IN THE MORNING. AND NOT ANY EGGS PFFT. THE BEST YELLOW FULFFY LITTLE SCRAMBLES YOU’VE EVER SEEN! WE ARE TALKING SANDWICHES. OF MANY FLAVOURS, SHAPES AND SIZES. INCLUSIVE SANDWICHES GREG! GREG, WE ARE TALKING- BREAKFAST, LUNCH… AND DINNER.
*Red Spotlight centres in on Greg. A bead of sweat drops from his brow*
GREG: D-d-dinner? I thought we were a café?
MUMMA SPOON: We are not just any café, Greg, if that is your real name.
GREG: How many times do I have to say it?!
MUMMA SPOON: We…. are Spoon!
*She and Annie are now light grey capes emblazoned with the Spoon logo*
And hence the wonder that is the Spoon Supper Club was born! For two evenings every month, your favourite brunch spot (we know it’s your fav because you’ve received this hilarious newsletter. Love u) transforms into a stylish, sophisticated culinary journey fit for food critics.
Speaking of, here is some of our Supper Club feedback:
“The food was beyond anything we can write to do it justice.”
“It was like a gastronomic journey, Fat Duck esque and genuinely remarkable.”
“Literally one of the best meals we’ve ever had pass our lips.”
