Supper Club St Columb – bringing people together through food.      The idea of running a vegetarian supper club came about as I was looking for a way I could raise some money for The Katie Piper Foundation, a charity who support burns victims. In December 2014 my brother was a victim of a horrific acid attack leaving him with life altering injuries. The attack turned out to be a case of mistaken identity.  During the first six months following the attack I would often visit my brother clutching some homemade food parcel that would always raise a smile, and so I quickly established my role as ‘cook’ feeling relieved that I could help my brother in some small way. Food has a way of bringing people together through good times and bad. It was this idea that inspired the supper club.   The first Supper Club St Columb is on March 19th and then on the third Saturday of every month after that. It will be held at my home in St Columb Major. You can expect to enjoy two and a half courses (hors d’oeuvre/nibble followed by a main course and a dessert) of vegetarian dishes using seasonal local produce. My style of cooking is wholesome comfort food that has the ‘crowd pleaser’ factor. To give you a taste of some of the dishes on the menu there will be an aubergine caponata with chunky polenta chips, carrot keftedes served on a warm salad of beetroot, squash and chick peas, and a moreish pistachio cake served with rhubarb sorbet.  Some dietary requirements can be catered for if we know in advance.   All proceeds made will go to the Katie Piper Foundation. The suggested donation amount is £20 per person.      For more details of Supper Club St Columb and information on how to book please contact Camilla on 07525858817 or visit the face book page at
