The South London team were inspired to get involved in the Syrian Supper Club by the delicious food and warm atmosphere at the E5 Bakehouse. Charlotte, Geoff, Nathalie and Louise all have personal connections to Syria – being enchanted by Aleppo while sleeping on its ancient rooftops, working with the heroic White Helmets during the recent conflict, and even representing Syria at rugby in the years before the war. Now all back living in South London, they are keen to help celebrate all that is wonderful about Syria as well as to raise funds for those affected by the ongoing crisis.

The Syrian Supper Club in South London will be hosted by the Brick House bakery in East Dulwich, who are kindly donating the use their beautiful premises and kitchen to us for the events.

Brick House Bakery, 1 Zenoria Street SE22 8HP

Our Syrian Suppers happen on the last Thursday of each month.

The Food

The original Syrian Supper Club has now teamed up with chefs Geoff Howard and Nathalie Moukarzel to run a monthly Syrian Supper in Brick House East Dulwich, a simply beautiful bakery and the perfect setting for a Syrian feast.

Geoff has been one of the head chefs for the Music at Albignac music festival for 12 years, and has had spells working in a Lebanese restaurant and a French brasserie; Nat has had a long career in food, including working in restaurants in Paris, Berlin and London, most recently at Morito in Exmouth Market. Already a supperclub veteran, her ‘The Owling Supperclub’ attracted the attention of the Guardian and the New York Times.

Geoff and Nat are both steeped in Middle Eastern cooking; Geoff through his time living and working in the region, and Nat through her British-Lebanese heritage. They both like to combine a fusion of traditional and contemporary elements of Middle Eastern and southern Mediterranean food.

House Rules

Seating: We like to place guests, so please let us know when booking your ticket in the comments section if you'd like to be seated with other guests (if you are not on the same booking).

In terms of cancellation, we can offer a full refund on a ticket as long as you let us know at least three days before the event. This is to ensure that we don't end up with empty seats round the dinner table, and each supper raises the maximum it can for the aid projects we fund in Syria.

Any further questions please email: southlondon@syriansupperclub.com
