Oh what a night…

Our first Buttercup Supper Club was a sell out! Our downstairs room was transformed into a French bistro with candlelight and French music. The soirée began with a wine tasting with Rob from Symposium Wine. Delicious Symposium wines for our guests to taste, including a Picpoul de Pinet, Chateauneuf du Pape and a delicious Corbieres (Lo Petit Fantet d’Hippolyte).

A taste of France brought to Lewes for one night only : The Buttercup Supper Club

Madam Buttercup (aka Claire) created a feast of delights. Lovely olives to nibble on, followed by a delicious Bouillabaisse made with local fish from Terry at Riverside . Le pièce de résistance was the confit du canard served with a cassoulet, red cabbage and fine green beans. Then came the Creme Catalan; warm caramel creme and cold ice cream heaven.

While tasting the brie and sipping on coffee, our guests were entertained by the magnificent and brilliant Forget-Me-Not. She took us on a whirlwind tour of French cabaret – with some Edith Piaf and Cole Porter thrown in for good measure. We all fell in love with her!

The Supper Club was such fun to put on and we hope our guests had as special a night as we did! Watch this space for news about our next special Buttercup event…
