Following a tip from our friend Diana Morgan who found out about it via Twitter, six of us enjoyed Georgian food and wine at the Large Glass Gallery, Caledonian Road along with small group of other diners. [That’s Georgia as in Caucasus, not USA!]
Natural wines from Georgia and elsewhere, supplied by Isabelle Legeron (@isabellelegeron), complemented Kerstin Rodgers’ flow of new food such as beetroot and walnut balls covered in pomegranate seeds, Georgian cheese and egg bread – khachapuri, Georgian egg salad, amazing aubergine rolls stuffed with spinach and walnut, yoghurt with sumak, and much more – all accompanied by large plates of fresh herbs. Kersten is @MsMarmiteLover, the legendary supper club host/food blogger and now we see why. She was ably assisted by Helen Graves, @FoodStories, and another food blogger Sarah Lohan (@Sass47). Other guests included our host, gallery director Charlotte Schepke, another well-known food blogger Niamh Shields (@eatlikeagirl), whose photo accompanies this blog post, and Radio 1 DJ Gemma Cairney.
On Sunday 20th and Monday 21st May the natural wine continues to flow at Isabelle’s event RAW, The Artisan Wine Fair at the old Trumans Brewery, Brick Lane, London E1.
Thanks Diana (@DMinTransition) for heads-up on this event. Great night. Four of the six of us already intended to travel to Georgia in October (as recommended by the other two) and now we’re looking forward to it even more!
