OUR BIG LAUNCH!

To celebrate the launch of FiveGoMad, Clare & Simon hosted a pop up restaurant at Jone's Dairy Cafe, on Wednesday, September 15th. The guest list consisted of friends, well wishers and some of our lovely suppliers.

The evening kicked off at 7:30pm, with guests being greeted by the quintessentially British aperitif of a beautifully crafted gin & tonic, the main ingredient courtesy of artisanal distillers Sipsmith. Everybody then sat down to a 6 course extravaganza lovingly prepared by FiveGoMad co-founder Simon, with his partner in crime and fellow GoMadder Clare.

In keeping with our site the meal followed a British theme, the menu being:

Bacon & Egg
(white truffle custard with truffle stock and smoked bacon crisp)
Prawn cocktail
(pan fried garlic marinaded tiger prawns on mini gem lettuce, cucumber, spring onions, with home made marie rose sauce)

Pea Soup

(pea and coconut milk)

Tartare of Smoked Salmon
(Sladbury farm organic smoked salmon with capers, gherkins, red onion, and sour cream with dill)

Oxtail Pie

(served with creamy mashed potato and baby carrots cooked in star anise infused orange juice)

Strawberries & Cream
(served between two pieces of heart shaped shortbread)

Clare styled the 'Oh-so-English' vintage feel venue with bunting supplied by Twisted Twee, Union Jack napkins, red roses and candles burning on every table to give a magical look to the evening.


The whole shebang finally wound down at the witching hour, guests staggering off into the late Summer night (being careful not to disturb the neighbours).

It was a fun evening all round. Hard work for Clare & Simon, but well worth the effort. We'd like to thank Rebecca, Lucy for their invaluable help in the kitchen, and especially warm thanks to Robin Whaite for allowing us to hire the cafe for our event. One question remains. Would we do it again? You bet! For an update on forthcoming events please email info@fivegomad.co.uk.
