Behind the Scenes – Stokey Secret Supper – March 2011

I thought it would be good to give you a behind the scenes view of Stokey Secret Supper!

This is what you see in the dining area – Lots of happy people eating delicious food.

The Kitchen

Here is where the magic happens – the nice calm kitchen before service kicks off!

The spinach for the sag dahl and the soup are both ready to be cooked!

Two important sections in my kitchen are the fully laden spice rack and the “tool shed” containing all sorts of spatulas, tongs, mashers, whisks and spoons etc.

The Tool Shed

The Food

The bahjis need to be rolled into small balls before they are fried, here are some bahjis ready to go. The temperatuire of the oil is maintained at 180 degrees C.

Here is the first round of bhajis cooking away nicely, and the spinach, once wilted, is added to the lentils to make the sag dahl.

The bahjis and dahl is served with some greek yohurt and harissa paste.

Some juicy tiger prawns cooking away.

Prawn and Mango salad plated up and ready to serve.

This all then leads back to these happy diners!

I have to admit that it’s not always been this calm in the kitchen!! I have built up to this level of calm from 6 secret suppers this year. Practice makes perfect!

Now that I have mastered this menu, it’s time for a change! Watch this space for new dishes on the menu!

The next Stokey Secret Suppers are on the 22nd and 23rd of April – Please email to book –
