Suzanne James is a professional chef based in South East London. Her company is well now as one of the most sustainable, privately owned catering and events companies in London. Once or twice a month we turn our private venue 'fifty seven' into a pop up training academy under the banner of the "East Dulwich Supper Club". It allows our Westminster College apprentice chefs to work on a live pass in real time. The have creative input into the menu, design the plate and work out how service will run. Front of house service is also provided by our trainee waiting team who are just starting out in the industry, giving them a platform to learn & perfect their skills.
Executive Chef Suzanne James and Head Chef Natalia Pereiro Taibo are of course on hand throughout to offer support & guidance; as always we make it happen, with just enough SJ Craziness to see it through!
East Dulwich Supper Club is run on a Not for Profit Basis with all proceeds going to the Suzanne James Food Foundation. This provides funding to gardening projects, and particularly vegetable growing in local schools. Each guest is not only enjoying a delicious dinner but also supporting sustainability in local schools!
The popularity and success of East Dulwich Supper Club speaks for itself, those who are lucky enough to get a seat are always keen to return again, and it has become something of an institution for some of our more regular guests!
