This is Mat and Rebecca’s first collaboration. The 6 course Valentine’s Supper Club will take place at Song’s Kitchen HQ. A quirky banquet-style dining space in a North London warehouse.  Whether you are in the mood for love, or just fancy a fabulous meal cooked by a MasterChef, we would love to welcome you to Song’s Kitchen.

Mat was Chef Patron of The Wild Garlic restaurant in Dorset and is well known for his love of foraged foods and the amazing ingredients that are produced in Dorset. He has recently brought this ‘taste of Dorset’ to various Pop-ups and Supper Clubs in London. Mat's restaurant The Wild Garlic was awarded 2 AA rosettes for 3 years until its close and was recomended in the Michelin Guide and The Good Food Guide. The Wild Garlic recieved some of the best reviews given by national publications, 9.5/10 by The Guardian, 9/10 by The Telegraph and the second highest rating in the 10 years of Olive magazine (56/60).

Rebecca Song has been a Chef for nearly four years, and has worked in Dorset with Mat Follas and in several Restaurants and Pubs in London, including Alan Yau’s Naamyaa Café, under David Thompson.  Rebecca set-up Song’s Kitchen in 2013, where she organises themed supper clubs, produces film and event catering and specialises in pan-Asian street food.

Fantastic Food & Evening

I have to agree with the most recent review as there was a very relaxed atmosphere, a great mix of guests and the food was excellent. The hosts were very approachable and went out of their way to make this a fantastic evening/weekend, especially as this was a surprise for my partner who thoroughly enjoyed herself. They were also more than willing to cater to the limited palate of this fussy diner. Well done Rebecca, Mat and everyone else involved.

Fab food, relaxed evening, great company

Having read the previous review I have to say that I didn't expect introductions. We were all grown ups and quite capable of greeting and speaking to the other guests as we all arrived. Cooking for numbers in a domestic kitchen isn't easy, but Mat and Rebecca definitely pulled this off. We were treated to extras like broccoli and stilton soup and an amazing ginger beer granita which weren't even on the menu. We met some interesting people, ate great food and left very happy. Thanks very much to all involved.

Great food badly let down by setting

We were so excited about a six course feast cooked by Mat. I feel he was really let down by his hosts. We arrived to deathly silence and a room shrouded in black curtains with a crystal maze style lighting scheme circa 1993. There was no attempt to welcome us or introduce people and the first 15-20 minutes were awkward to the point of wanting to leave. I thought Mat's cooking was really let down by it - plates served luke warm, bickering in the kitchen over things and no attempt by the hosts to make this an experience to remember. Having been to many pop ups the food was better but the whole experience: disappointing and as for the mark up on wine ... Hosts need to think about their guests.

Song's Kitchen responded on 16 February 2014:

I'm sorry your expectations weren't met for service. This was a supper club in a home. You were 30 minutes early so we really weren't ready for you to start eating at that time.
We had struggled to be ready at the start time but we made it, due to the extreme weather Mat was nearly 2 hours late arriving, and we served additional courses to compensate as the first course was delayed. We had brought some special wines for the evening and at £20 the markup was well below restaurant levels for wines of the quality.
There was no bickering in the kitchen we are aware of, Mat and I did have some normal banter, I will be more aware of this in future.
Again I am sorry your expectations weren't met.

We accept Visa, Mastercard, Maestro, Visa Electron, Visa Debit and Mastercard Debit cards.
