'How to eat your Christmas tree': supper club with the Bread Companion

Regular price £38.00 Sale

Julia of The Bread Companion is back, this time with three special sittings of a meal to round off your festive season...

How to eat your Christmas tree…’ is an annual, evergreen-themed feast, which explores the edible heroes of our forests – Christmas trees! 

It was cooked up by long-time friends of Host of Leyton Julia Georgalis of the Bread Companion and Lauren Davies of Heka Lab

Evergreen trees are pillars of winter, as they stand tall and thriving through minus temperatures and snow – their scent reminiscent of Christmas. But come January, we see sad, wilted trees lining the streets, cast off and disused. During a 4 course meal, conifers and evergreen trees are served up for dinner in a multitude of exciting and unusual ways. Diners will leave feeling inspired to extend the life of their Christmas tree, perhaps by nibbling on it, after this experience! We are also working to recycle Christmas trees and will also donate £2 from every ticket sold to various charities around London working to replant trees. 

This year, The Bread Companion is collaborating with Host of Leyton and will be running 3 dinners in East London's Leyton around 12th Night, when Christmas trees are traditionally taken down. There are 25 spots available each night, from 6.30 pm onwards. This is a BYOB event - we recommend bringing some kind of gin or vodka so that we can make you a cocktail to kick off the night! Take a look at our menu below...
