Suppertime, and the living is easy…

The Dorset Food Co hosted their First Supper Club Night at the Barefaced Brewery Co on Thursday 10th February. Guests were greeted with a warm welcome from their host Carl Thomson, who is renowned for serving up the best artisan produce the county has to offer.

‘Game On’ was to offer locals tantalising exquisite dishes, specially prepared by Carl. Diners were presented with a truly inspiring menu to sample:

Venison Carpaccio, Parmesan & Truffle
followed by
Confit Duck Bon Bon with Carrot,
Orange & Cumin, followed by
Boar served in Milk Bun
with amazing Dripping Potatoes
followed by
Venison, Celeriac & Shallots
with an incredible
Earl Grey & Heather Honey Panna
Cotta which had the perfect wobble!

Paired with a tasty and perfectly balanced drinks flight, chosen by the legend that is Tom, the entire experience was fantastically thought out. The evening was a great success and
the diners had the opportunity to chat to Carl after to discuss how each dish was
prepared and ingredients used.We look forward to the next supper club by The Dorset Food Co at Barefaced on Thursday 24th March.

Before moving to Blandford Barefaced spent a summer brewing in a converted garage at Tom’s house, throwing pilot batches of pale ales and porters down the necks of neighbours and friends, they realised that good old-fashioned hard work and perseverance was starting to pay off. People liked their beer; they needed to expand. After a small stint in Bournemouth with Bad Hand Coffee they moved to their new brewery site located in Blandford in 2021, not even a year old they’ve already grown a
massive following as the go-to spot after a hard week at work and are about to celebrate their 1st birthday!

Ellie and Charlie attended the event and they cannot recommend it highly enough. “Absolutely everything was amazing from the food to the service.” Upon arrival they were offered a very warm welcome with a variety of drinks offered to complement each of the five dishes that were to be served.

They enjoyed a relaxing and welcoming environment and when the culinary delights were served… a real sensation for the taste buds, cooked to perfection. Amazing to remember that the delights we savoured – dishes that you would expect from a high end restaurant – were all cooked in their van! Pure brilliance.

To be able to eat such delicious foods, in a wonderful environment, on my own doorstep – incredible, what more could we ask for?

I recommend the Supper Club Nights to all!
