Well... I mustn't be that delusional to think that the Masterchef UK winner Tim Anderson would ever cook dinner solely for me, but I must say it was close. The invitee list for The London Supper Club's "Around the World on a Plate" was an intimate 20 or so people comprised mostly of food writers, food bloggers, and the like, all eager to indulge in the drinks and nourriture a plenty.
The evening was held in a chic Islington townhouse, hosted by fellow food blogger and Le Cordon Bleu graduate The London Foodie, in association with unearthed foods. unearthed supplied such a fresh and fabulous array of quality foods that I couldn't believe its usually to be bought packaged in stores!

Mingling amongst the guests, I was smitten with the free flowing food and drinks which kicked off the evening and engaged the guests in bubbly chatter.
We then made our way down to the kitchen and dining area where a long and lavish table was laid out before us, inviting guests to eagerly sit and await our feast, cooked by MasterChef UK winner Tim Anderson.

Anderson, was invited by unearthed to create a dish showcasing the multicultural ethos of the company - that being good quality produce with dishes influenced by the flavours of the world. Now I don't usually blog about savoury food, but the main dish included a goat cheese marshmallow inspired by Anderson's childhood favourite dessert S'Mores - so I figure its on its way to dessert! Tim was even kind enough to show us how to make it (secret recipe revealed.)

After an intriguing conversation with food writer Aggie MacKenzie (pictured in her eye-catching red dress,) I got up to hover around the dessert about to be plated...
The desserts were provided by unearthed and available to buy in store (I would never have guessed...) Pear tart on a frangipane base with saffron ice cream and cherry compote... need I say more?

Poka-dots seemed to have been a popular print choice that evening as seen on the red dress of food writer MacKenzie, and myself (which I paired with a leopard print purse!)
