Whipped lardo, pickled carrot, flowers, sourdough toast, James Ramsden's Secret Larder Supper Club

Secret Larder, last supper

Menu from a dinner at the last ever supper club of James Ramsden’s Secret Larder at Vagabond N7:

Whipped lardo, pickled carrot, flowers, sourdough toast

Braised squid, padron peppers, wine-braised kombu, bonito, pickled potatoes

Lamb breast, romesco, charred aubergine, yogurt, flatbread

Green granita, chevre ganache, brown butter financier

James Ramsden has been running the Secret Larder for some time before I finally made it to one of his supperclubs. Just as well because it was the last one ever. The team are now behind Pidgin.

The food can be best described as modern European but with a sort of home-cooked feel.
