deliciously ella – supper club




As someone very health conscious I’ve been a fan of Deliciously Ella for a while now. It’s always nice to see people, passionate about helping others to make better eating choices. You don’t have to agree with all of them but sure enough you will learn new stuff on the way.

Ella focuses on whole, plant-based foods and she makes it all look very yummy. She graduated from St Andrews with a Masters in Art History in May 2013 and has  a best-selling app, is launching her cookbook early next year and teaches cooking classes. Her blog and IG feed are super popular.

A couple of months ago, Ella announced on IG she was doing some supper clubs with her own food at special locations. I was curious so booked myself a place. Last night saw the first of these events.

Meet Ella.

The evening took place at Paradise – by way of Kensal Green, a rather nice restaurant and drinking bar. For those, not necessarily interested in healthy food, here are shots of the interior which I hope will inspire.

The tables were beautifully set with each one getting a goodie bag.

I loved the rustic look of the place. It felt very inviting and the staff very super nice and helpful.

There were numerous lamp shades that took my fancy.

You were able to order all sorts of drinks and cocktails. For me, this cucumber, mint and raspberry water was just what I needed to keep my hydrated.

Tucked away in one corner was a beautiful free standing screen. I just loved the treatment on it.

The decor in the main restaurant was really beautiful. Lots of amazing lights and I really liked the idea of all these corks in the cage.

There’s also a great outside space, especially wonderful in this weather.

What I really enjoyed was to see a room of about 70 people, some came in pairs or groups, others on their own. I sat at a table of 6 and my fellow female diners were a real eclectic bunch of different personalities and walks of life. It made for a most interesting and entertaining evening.

The Menu:

Rice paper wraps with mango dipping sauce
Cucumber & avocado rolls
Beetroot hummus & carrot sticks
All served family style, for tables to share

Coconut Thai curry with brown rice
Marinated kale salad with sweet potato wedges
Carrot, ginger & coconut soup with sautéed mushrooms

Mango & cashew nut mousse with toasted pecans
Sweet potato brownies with coconut icing

The food, as expected, was delicious but difficult to photograph in only candle lit light and with a bunch of women who could hardly wait to tuck in.

I thoroughly enjoyed myself. Ella is as beautiful as she is nice. Completely genuine, talented and very sweet, I wish her the best of luck in her journey which has already taken her to incredible heights. Thank you for a great evening, for delicious food and for stimulating conversations with the lovely bunch of ladies at my table. Oh, fret not, I spotted quite a few gentlemen too.

Have a good weekend everyone x

    Oh what a great night, nothing better bringing people together through the joy of food and good food at that. I follow Ella on IG too and enjoy popping over to her blog. Thanks for another great documentary! Mel xx

      I’ve never been to a supper club because the food generally tends to be rich and full of ingredients I’m intolerant to.

      For me it was a really nice experience and unlike going to someone’s home with maybe 8 people as guests, this was a rather lovely larger gathering!
      Thanks Emma

    Beetroot hummus is one of my favourite things.

  5. This must have been a lovely supper! The menu looks so delicious and healthy, and the entourage is wonderful. I must check out Ella’s app and instagram, you got me curious. Will you also give a shout out when her cook book is published?

      Hi. Yes, I’m sure you would have really enjoyed it.
      Sure, I think the book comes out in January 2015 but will let you know:-)

  6. I always admire people who are willing to give things such as this a go. I’m sure it can’t be easy and you really do put yourself out there. But it all looks wonderful! :-) x
