We did it! We did it! On Wednesday the 9th Oct we launched our Supper Club offerings in style at the trendy East London venue Benk + Bo. Read on to get a taste for the evening and a picture story of the night.

When we created Modern Persian Kitchen, we wanted to ensure we captured not only a taste of Iran, but also showcased a modern side to Persian cuisine. We also felt it was important to celebrate the culture of Iran and the importance of mealtime with family and friends. Supper Clubs are the perfect way to do this, to meet new people and enjoy some delicious food in a small and intimate experience.

Our evening at Benk + Bo

Our evening showcased a taste of Persia like never seen before. A true family affair with dad (Shary),an award winning chef, taking the traditional flavours of Iran and refining these to bring Persian cuisine into a modern, à la carte dining experience. Daughter (Nat), in the dining room, creating a visual feast for the eyes. And Mum (Deb), hosting guests out front with Son in Law (Tom), and a little help from a wonderful team of friends, the evening came together to be a great success.
