The Supper Club
Delicious East African Inspired food set in a relaxed communal dining environment
About the food
I was born in Kuwait to an amazing Somali mother who is the most inspiring cook. Arriving in London as a refugee in the 80's, food was a way in which my mother connected us to our Somali heritage.
For centuries the Somali/Swahili coast has been shaped by trade with India and the Middle East. In the 20th century you see the effect of the Italian and British occupations through staples like pasta, bread, pizza and desserts.
We use free-range meat and eggs and endeavour to cook seasonally, sourcing much of our food from in and around Bristol, as ethically as we can.
I look forward to sharing some of the flavours of this wonderful region with you.
