We’ve just had a meeting about Supper Society with Peter Moulam and his creative kitchens… OMG….We’ve been chatting about the most secretive secrets to do with sublime food and its curious presentation and our Societiers experience step by step from arrival to saying Na Night…
It’s pretty special even if we do say so… BUT the bad thing is we can’t tell you anything about the menu and NOTHING about the night full stop… Apart from the fact we have 2 more tickets left…Anything else is reserved for the knowledge of our Societiers….Who will be let in to some of our secrets from next week… They are of course sworn to absolute secrecy…
We’re bowled over by the enthusiasm and excitement from our jam packed room full of Societiers… We couldn’t have asked for anymore people (well just 2 more) or a nicer mix of guests – so THANK YOU!!! We will reward you with a Supper Society of excellence!
‘A mysterious society dedicated to the curious consumption of food within the walls of The Chimney House’.
Hung loosely on a ‘Supper Club’ principle, Supper Society is the first time individual seats can be booked to attend a dining event in The Chimney House which usually hosts private dining events in the Pop Up Dining Hall for private parties and celebrations.
Inspiration for the styling and content of Supper Society has been conjured up partly from elements from the ethereal novel ‘The Night Circus’ by Erin Morgenstern which trips between dream-like locations, Le Cirque des Rêves and glorious feasts hosted within a magical house and The Chimney House owners own curious night time adventures in Supper Clubs and dining experiences in the UK and Europe.
Supper Society is described as a ‘mysterious society dedicated to the curious consumption of food’ and entertains ‘Societiers’ for the course of an evening with 6 courses and a secret theme which changes each time. Societiers have no idea of their experience until they arrive on Kelham Island when they are passed a secret note on the approach to The Chimney House as preparation for the theme they will find themselves immersed in on arrival.
Sally Clark, Owner of The Chimney House comments ‘Supper Society takes The Chimney House to the next level of bespoke event presentation, we are avid pursuers of creative styling to enhance experiences and bolster imaginations to transport minds and souls away from the daily and mundane. To enter a Society based entirely on that ethos – just for the course of an evening is escapism worth experiencing.’
Societiers will experience an unknown menu which has been crafted to reflect the imagination and genius from guest creative kitchen teams who place their emphasis on presentation and the ‘reveal’ of items as well as incredible ingredients combined to create inspiring tasty courses in keeping with chosen themes.
Sally Clark continues ‘we have been asked hundreds of times if guests of The Chimney House can book places for dinner with us…Dinner almost seems a little humdrum – so we’ve created a Society that is open to everyone and gives us a chance to combine creative alliances with chefs who are willing to pick up our challenge of the creation of ‘a mysterious society dedicated to the curious consumption of food…We almost can’t wait till October 25th for our Societiers to arrive’.
Societiers must be prepared to put themselves in our hands and be guided through an evening which is as much about experience and ambiance as it is about food and its presentation.
Societiers attending Supper Society will be not told what Society to expect until they arrive on Kelham Island. They will be handed a note on the approach to The Chimney House which will contain one word which will be the Supper Society theme.
Guests can book 1,2,3,4,5,6 seats at a time
Supper Society is not a club. You are not bound by club rules nor are under any obligation to interact with any other society guests.
Societiers will not be given entire menus before hand but will be told details of various parts of the evening. It is at this time guests will inform us of dietary requirements for which we will cater bespoke.
The Chimney House encourages the bringing of ones own wine and ales. We do not provide wines/ales/beers/liquors. We will advise on wine types which will compliment each course.
Everyone who attends Supper Society will eat the same unless they inform us of specific dietary requirements in the weeks leading up to Supper Society.
Our Supper Society Chefs
We wanted to work with chefs that challenge the usual and present dining outside the constraints of convention. We wanted to work with a team who didn’t shudder at the thought of leaving the dining plates in the cupboard and who didn’t run a mile when we revealed our first theme…We also wanted to be inspired by their thoughts and to challenge them on suggestions to deliver a sublimely exceptional menu which is based upon our locality but influenced by cool dining and supper clubs from the UK and into Europe. We wanted to work with a group of real foodies who have the expertise to deliver their promises and to be educational about the provenance of their ingredients without being a bore!
We wanted playful and simple ideas that could be worked up into and around The Chimney House to be more than a Supper Club and more than just ‘dining’ we wanted the menu to be quirky and edgy but with a luxurious and sophisticated edge…One to surprise and delight.
The team we’ve chosen for the first Supper Society, is one that has ticked all boxes and is as passionate about this event as we are, is one led by the imagination of Peter Moulam from his creative kitchens.
The first Supper Society of the season will convene on Thursday the 25th October at The Chimney House, 4 Kelham Island at 7.30pm.
Societiers will indulge in a 6 course dining experience.
The Society will dine at 8pm.
Societiers are invited to join us for the full evening.
Taxis will be outside The Chimney House at 11pm.
