The Open Door Supper Club is delighted to announce our next event happening on Saturday February 16th. We live in an era obsessed with best before dates and use by dates -which is all well and good most of the time, but when I see it on a packet of pasta for example it irkes me ....ever so slightly....if in doubt use your nose. In bygone times before fridges it was necessary to give food longevity by one of the many methods of preserving. Nowadays we eat 'preserved' foods for the ends of pleasure rather than survival -although my mother would have you believe her continuity on terra firma is directly linked to always having a jar of lemon curd within arms reach. So if we travelled back in time 50/100 years, in the merry month of February we would no doubt find oursleves tucking into the preserved goods in the larder. I am proferring a little homage to those foods pickled, smoked and salted in this special dinner. Come gather round a roaring fire, meet some salt of the earth people, fill your belly and all your ills will be cured.
