Mothers’ Day

East Cliff Kitchen had a particular reason for celebrating Mothers Day.  Cherry started the award-winning Paramour Pie Club (our previous incarnation) when she became a mother herself and she suddenly developed a hankering to feed the world! But before any of that, she was taught how to cook by her own mother – an epic chef in her own right (and one half of Truluck & Heaven).  Jenny Truluck was responsible for the fish pie recipe on our menu and was the inspiration and consultant for everything else.  She is awesome.

We had such a lovely day celebrating all the wonderful women in our lives with delicious food and drink, including a couple of Pie Club specials!

Popping up in March

Thank you so much to all of you who have supported us in February, It has been a beautiful experience for us to open up our home to you all and share the food we love. At yesterday’s brunch we were full to capacity and it was absolutely joyful.

We have a busy month coming up – I am cheffing at the Cockles Supper Club at the Goods Shed in Canterbury on 26th Feb and I’ll be cooking up a forest feast for tree planters working with the Ash project in early March. After that we are planning more pop-ups of our own. The first is a special Mothers Day lunch on 11th March and then a weekend of Brunches on 24th and 25th March.
