SYRIAN SUPPER CLUB – THURSDAY 6TH JUNE

 

The Syrian Supper Club was started in 2012 by a group of friends in London wanting to do something positive in response to the humanitarian crisis in Syria and show that friends they had met there had not been forgotten. Since then suppers have taken place all over the world with more than £300,000 raised for the Hands up Foundation which focuses on funding sustainable projects in and around Syria. These projects deliver vital health and education services while simultaneously providing livelihoods and strengthening the stability of local communities. For more information, please see www.handsupfoundation.org.

 

We’re very excited to be hosting the next Bristol supper on Thursday 6th June. Cooked by renowned Chef Ruth Quinlan, it will be a generous feast of Syrian inspired dishes. Ruth has cooked for prime ministers and pop stars as well as many years at E5 Bakehouse in Hackney – if you’ve ever been there you might notice some inspirations that have influenced our bakery!

 

The event will be BYO and will include a welcome cocktail on arrival.

LEIGH COURT FARM – SATURDAY 18th MAY

 

Organic vegetables don’t come much more local than this – Leigh Court Farm has been supplying households in Bristol with produce grown within 5 miles of Bristol for 20 years. They deliver vegetable boxes direct to homes or local collection points as well as trading at The Bristol Farmers Market and Whiteladies Road Market.

 

We’re delighted to have Carol from the farm joining us with a stall in front of the bakery stacked with the best of the seasons produce as well as halloumi and ricotta from their neighbours at Abbots Leigh Dairy.

 

This is a great opportunity to stock up for the weekend or get set up on their vegetable box scheme just as the very best of the summer produce is being harvested. Find out more about what they offer here.

 

Leigh Court Farm recently faced difficult changes to their tenancy from The National Trust and thanks to lobbying from local people The National Trust have been forced to reconsider. This is great news and means they can continue growing amazing organic produce right on our doorstep.

 

Saturday 18th May 8am – noon

The bakery will be open as usual from 7am to 3pm
