Gluttons Club – Menu for ‘A Taste Of Portugal’

Bristol's newest supperclub
*Please note this event is now sold out – we will be announcing more dates soon*

Our first ever supperclub event is fast approaching and we have been excitedly sharing, perfecting and arguing over recipes for our Taste Of Portugal menu.

This is a subject which is very near and dear to both our hearts as we have been visiting the country for a long time and have a lot of magical memories linked to the place and the food. So you can imagine that narrowing it down to a few dishes for our menu has been pretty tough, but we’ve done it!

We are serving up a fabulous four course (+ treats) menu of Portuguese delicacies and delights – our favourite foods and recipes from our 20 years of visiting the Algarve.

Testing out recipes

Portuguese food is simple yet luxurious, with fresh prawns, rustic bread, hearty fish soup and (of course) piri piri all finding a special place in our hearts.

Eating out in Portugal takes time. Everything is freshly prepared & diners enjoy wine & conversation between courses. We want to recreate that special atmosphere in the charming surroundings of the scout boathouse on the river.

Portugal has an ancient and rich culinary tradition. We can’t reflect it all in one menu, so we have chosen to serve dishes which reflect our favourite memories, from the burning heat of our first taste of chicken piri piri to a dessert inspired by our favourite ever pastry – Pastel de Nata.

Join us for a friendly, fun evening of sumptuous slow food and enjoy the flavours of Portugal, where oranges grow, the Mediterranean meets the Atlantic and the hot sun intensifies the flavours of every dish.

Cooking for the supperclubThe suggested donation is £25 pp – BYOB – we would recommend a light crisp white to complement the food. Portuguese wines are a delicious option, go for something from the Douro or Alentejo region, or try a green wine for a lower alcohol variety. If you’d prefer beer then try Super Bock or Sagres for a Portuguese flavour.

All our produce will be sustainably sourced with as many homegrown and local ingredients as possible. if you have any questions about the menu or any specific dietary requirements please don’t hesitate to contact us.

We can’t wait to share our favourite dishes, with you.
