Suffolk Supper Club launch latest residency at Deben Coffee House, Debenham
A village coffee house has been transformed into an Arabian banquet as the wildly successful Suffolk Supper Club begins its latest residency.
For two nights this month, Deben Coffee House will look more reminiscent of Doha than Debenham as a dozen international food lovers convene to enjoy a variety of Middle Eastern foods.
Having held three banquets at Debenham Sports Centre last year, head chef and organiser Gary Cole is now looking forward to hosting two more this month in the High Street location.
He said: “We met a great cross-section of the community and received lots of wonderful feedback on our food and the communal style of eating, which replicates how many families eat in some parts of the world.”
The 53-year-old explained how the supper club aims to offer alternative cuisines that would otherwise be difficult to find in mid-Suffolk – all while making new friends.
“Our vision for the supper club is that, firstly, we are not a restaurant,” he said. “We want our guests to feel at home and use the opportunity to share great conversation and make new friends.
“Each evening consists of around nine dishes, all of which are freshly made. Our speciality is Middle Eastern and Moroccan, which are perfect for this style of dining.
“People love the vibrancy and contrasting flavours, as well as trying dishes that would otherwise be hard to find in Suffolk.”
Suffolk Supper Club will next meet on May 19 and 20. To find out more, email email@example.com.
