Secret Kitchen

July 2017 to Oct 2019: Please note I am pausing London events while I live in Croatian Istria to do anthropological research and launch our new culinary guesthouse. Come and visit us at Bolara 60 for rural tranquility and culinary adventure…


The Secret Kitchen is my supper club, which I’ve been running in London since 2010.

20+ people come for dinner. We start with cocktails and canapés, then sit at communal tables. Guests bring their own wine, for which I provide suggestions with the help of wine writer Victoria Moore.

My menus are inspired by my culinary travels, the seasons and the ingredients I love. Some dinners are collaborations with other chefs and anthropologists who have particular areas of expertise. Each menu tells a story.

Some upcoming dates and menus are advertised here, others are not. Sometimes the menu is kept secret until the night of the event. To be notified of all dates, subscribe to the Culinary Anthropologist newsletter by clicking the sign up button to the right. Past menus can be found below.

Email me to book places. I can cater for most special dietary requirements if given sufficient notice.
