Deliciously Ella’s Supper Club

My instagram feed is full of amazingly inspiring women creating healthy food, sharing great workouts and generally encouraging their followers to make good choices. Ella is one such inspiration, with her huge array of sugar, wheat, dairy and meat free meals, proving that healthy food doesn’t have to be boring.

I found Deliciously Ella a while ago, and was very lucky to interview her for work in April, however, major confession- I’d never actually tried any of her food. My lovely friend Loz decided to treat us both to tickets to Ella’s supper club as a pre-Berlin marathon treat.

Held at Paradise in North West London, the supper club took over the gorgeous back room, with tables to seat about 70 people I think. Ella was making her way around the room, introducing herself to guests and chatting with tables. It was a really nice touch, and it made it feel more personal despite being a large group of people.

Our starters were sharing platters including Spring Rolls with Mango Avocado dip, Crudites with smoked aubergine dip and individual Tomato and Canellini bean soup.

The Aubergine Dip was amazing- so smooth and creamy. Apparently made by roasting the aubergines, then blitzing them together with tahini, sundried tomatoes – I think this is Ella’s recipe from her blog. I think the Spring Rolls would have been even more delicious with some fresh mint and coriander but overall, the starters were amazing.

For our mains there was a choice of Buckwheat and Beetroot Risotto, Black Bean Chili with Brown Rice or Marinated Kale Salad with Sweet Potatoes. Loz and I opted to share the risotto and chilli, and although both tasted great, it ended up being a lot of rice. I loved the rich earthy flavours in the risotto, and the crunchy texture. I would definitely make it at home, with the addition of a little goat’s cheese!

Although we didn’t try any, everyone was raving about the Kale salad so I’m hoping it might be similar to this Marinated Kale salad on Ella’s blog so that I can recreate it at home. 
Dessert was an absolute highlight. Avocado chocolate mousse is something I’ve been wanting to try for ages, and I will never say no to something chocolatey. Teamed with a banana-y flapjack (ideal for dunking) it was hard to believe this indulgent dessert wasn’t really bad for you. 

It was a fab night, with so much food that I went home feeling stuffed. I’m looking forward to trying out some of Ella’s recipes at home, especially now I know how tasty they are, and am on the lookout for more awesome supper clubs. I’d love to hear any of your suggestions?
