As far as “Things That You Didn’t Know You Needed” go, Supper With A Side of Humour By The Singleton is right up at the top of our list.
This whisky-based three-course dinner promises to switch up everything you thought you knew about supper clubs by pairing unusual ingredients with a hilarious comedian. Taking place at the beautiful Hackney Coffee Co this June, it’s the unmissable event that you’ll want to go back to again and again. Taking place on June 13th and June 26th, it’s a unique event that’s set to be impressive.
So don’t expect a stuffy evening of affairs at this supper club, because The Singleton promises anything but. Alongside the delicious menu below, you’ll be able to sample a range of cocktails, expertly put together by The Singleton’s mixologist Ervin Trykowski. Once you’ve finished your meal, you’ll be treated to a 30 minute set by one of London’s finest comedians.
If you haven’t heard of Jack Barry by name, you’ll almost certainly recognise him by his range of gags. Jack has been seen/heard on The Russell Howard Hour (Sky One), Catastrophe (Channel 4), Turn Up Charlie (Netflix), Cuckoo (BBC Three), BBC Radio 4, Channel 5 and ITV2. He’s also written for Mock the Week and provided tour support for Russell Howard, Marc Maron, James Acaster and Joe Lycett. As well as being a comic, he’s also worked as the face of McCoy’s crisps in the past and used the extra boost of fame for plenty of new, crisp-based material. So you know you’re in for a treat for the ears and the mouth at this supper club!
On the menu this June you’ll find The Singleton Seaside Soda – the perfect accompaniment to your first course. Made up of Singleton 12YO, Chipshop cordial, Lemon soda and caperberries, it’s one to sip on at the start of the evening.
Next up, to enjoy with your main course, there’s The Singleton Trade Route, made up of Singleton 15YO, Pineapple and Turmeric Sugar and Angostura Bitters. Served in an Old Fashioned style glass with a block of ice, it’s a sweet and refreshing drink that’ll go down nicely with your main course.
But this supper club wouldn’t be complete without a dash of The Singleton’s originality and flair. Bringing the menu to a close, you’ll be served a Singleton Scotch Mist. The clue’s in the name as to what you’ll get with this one, along with some Singleton 18YO, blackcurrant jelly, Tonka icecream and a delicious aroma.
If your mouth wasn’t already watering, here’s the menu you can expect at Supper With A Side of Humour By The Singleton:
TINNED SALMON & TOAST SANDWICHES
Singleton whisky cured salmon and asparagus terrine topped with pickled shallot rings and caviar, set inside a ring pull tin – sealed and to be opened at the table. Toasted rye miniature bagel and sliced pickled gherkins served to accompany. Vegetarian option: Mediterranean vegetable terrine.
CURRY PIE & CHIPS
Slow cooked curried lamb shoulder, onion and potato pie wrapped in a pithivier-style domed shortcrust pie case, served with a mango salsa and chip shop curry sauce in jugs. Pressed, thinly sliced confit potato chips dusted in salt and vinegar served to accompany. Vegetarian option: curried root vegetable pie.
JELLY & ICE CREAM
Singleton infused jelly dome (made with vegetarian gelatine) suspending summer berries sat on a hazelnut ice cream and genoise sponge sandwich. The finished dish looks like an edible snow globe and the jelly wobbles on the top when the plate is moved.
