In the intimate setting of the upstairs Jacobean Living Room, Simi’s Middle Eastern Harvest Feast will be celebrating the bounty on offer synonymous with this time of year.
With a seasonal cocktail on arrival, the launch of the new Supper Collective coincides with the Great Bath Feast and British Food Fortnight and shall be presented on platters to share with friends old and new.
The Living Room is scattered with tables catering to groups of four to eight with a maximum of 24 guests a night. Open from 6.30pm for your complimentary cocktail and a chance to mingle before the meal, guests will choose their own seats before the food comes out at 7pm.
The supper is curated and delivered by Simi’s Kitchen, a bath-based cookery writer, teacher, organic allotmenteer and Supper Club hostess. In the intimate setting of The Grapes upstairs Jacobean Living Room, in partnership with Melissa of Pig Guide fame, the evening includes a welcome seasonal cocktail on arrival for just £45 p.p.
Launching in time to coincide with The Great Bath Feast and British Food Fortnight, the trio will be hosting regular events throughout the year celebrating high days and holidays such as a Fireworks Night Supper on November 3rd and Burns Night on January 25th.
Our landlady, Ellie Leiper was inspired to start up the collective as “Seasonal produce and the ability of food to bring people together is one of the great pleasures in life. Since moving to Bath from the country, where we grew our own produce for decades and had our own flock of milking sheep, heritage pigs, goats and poultry, I have been struck by a powerful need to reconnect to the changing of the seasons through dishes that delight. It goes without saying that Mellissa champions all things foodie, so she was an obvious choice in starting the collective and Simi’s love for the land and how that translates in her native dishes is joy on a platter for me, as this was the food I grew up with in Nigeria, sharing meals with many Middle Eastern family friends.”
Simi enjoys and cooks food from across the world but is best known for her native Persian Azeri dishes. For the past 11-years she has taught local cookery classes, inspired by seasonal fruit, vegetables and herbs, where possible sourced from her allotment and otherwise championing local producers such as the Thoughtful Bakery who will be providing their sour dough goodness to the Supper Collective. In 2019 Simi launched her successful Lockdown Supper Clubs and she is now looking forward to receiving guests at The Grapes.
