DDC is an events company that "brings like-minded people together to enjoy great food, drink and good company in reclaimed or unusual private spaces". As well as hosting dinners and events in and around London, they have also launched Back in 5 Minutes, a permanent restaurant hidden behind a designer clothes shop on Brick Lane.
Every Wednesday they host a Dinner Club, with 30 seats around three tables, for "family style, get-to-know-your-neighbours dining". I thought it would be fun to try it out with my Blog 'n' Bake friends and so that's where we all had dinner last night.

Hosted in Selina’s house in Croydon, the supper club consisted of starters, main dishes and a dessert, all made with fresh, locally sourced ingredients. With the help of ‘Mama Choo’, she put together a fantastic 3 course dinner that left us full and satisfied.
We had a small food bloggers meet-up as Sela of Chocolate Walks, Katy of Feel Good Food Book and Laura of The Writing Type were also there. With a total of twelve diners, plus Selina’s husband, mum and in-laws, it felt more like a big family reunion and there was a lovely and warm atmosphere!
We arrived at the dinner just after 7pm and had the time for a rum cocktail before sitting down for dinner. The starters consisted in crispy Chilli Cakes (Gateaux Piment) and Aubergine… Continue reading →
