Eat the seasons

Loving the autumn vegetables

The change of the seasons

For me blackberries mark the end of summer and the plums mark the start of autumn. Our seasons seem a bit all over the place at the moment but we are well into autumn now with lots of delicious fruits and vegetables at their best. Blackberries, Plums, Sweetcorn, Figs and Butternut squash.

Testimonials

“Wow last night’s secret supper club was faultless! We were blown away by the hospitality, the food and the surroundings. Giving some of the top London restaurants a run for their money – thank you for a really brilliant night.”

Secret Supper Club at Neptune

“We were lucky enough to bag tickets for Ben Sulston’s pop up event, and we can see why these TOFS events have become so popular! There was a fantastic, friendly atmosphere from the very start, and eating a top restaurant standard dessert under the fairy lights was the highlight of our evening.”

Supper club at TOFS

“What a wonderful night, the food was gorgeous and the whole experience was overall perfect. Would have you back in a flash.”

Dinner party

“Ben, thank you so much for the amazing food you prepared for our party of 10 last night. Having been to your pop up at The Old Fire Station, I’d raved on about how good it was. Due to your popularity and demand, they were selling out like hot cakes, hence booking a private dinner party. Everyone had a fantastic time and were blown away last night. We will be booking again.”

Dinner Party

“Such amazing catering for our events from Ben Sulston. A wide variety of healthy and locally sourced food with so many flavors yum.!”

Drop off event

“We have had so, so many comments about the food – my favourite was the venison (so hard to cook perfectly for 31 people) but opinion was divided on which was the best out of all 3 courses (indeed I have never heard so many people rave about desert before!). Also everyone loved the interactive style with chef Ben Sulston, it’s such a great touch. 

Sam, Ben and all of the staff worked tirelessly and it really was such a special night for us as TOFS is a huge part of our Tonbridge life!”
