Hi everyone!

For all of those that came to Biscocho’s charity evening last Friday THANK YOU for your generous donations, which came to a whopping £290! We will be sending Kids Company a cheque this week (promise) and will keep you posted with any news we get of how it is being spent.

Biscocho will be adding another date to the diary soon so keep an eye on your inbox for more details. Below is a selection of our favourite photos of the evening. Enjoy!

Oh yes! BISCOCHO now have a stamp which means we can make business cards and plaster our logo wherever we like however much we please. We’re really happy with how these tags turned out. They represent our homemade goodness. We hope you’ll agree.

On another note….

BISCOCHOS next supper club will take place on Friday 19 April and this one’s going to be a little different. We will be raising money for Kids Co, a voluntary organisation that supports inner-city children. Therefore, we will be asking those that wish to attend for a donation of £15.

So what treats can you expect? We will be providing a three course menu with a range of Middle Eastern/ Spanish influenced tapas so that you can sample a variety of dishes as well as a delicious non-alchoholic beverage (please BYOB)

As we’d like to make this evening really special and in the spirit of things please would you add a touch of pink to your clothes or wear an item from a charity shop to jazz things up a little as we’re raising money for charity. It doesn’t have to be too extravagant, but don’t hold back if you want it to be!

If you’d like to attend please drop us an email or give us a call on 078 942 76736

Biscocho cooked up its first storm of 2013 last Saturday to celebrate half the duo’s move to Clapham South. With a Middle Eastern inspired menu, proceedings kicked off with a grand mezze. The smells of hummus (yes really we braved it again) and spices meant guests were salivating for food. We triumphed in satisfying  their appetites with our colourful menu:

* Starter*

Butter bean hummus (it finally worked!!)

Butternut squash and tahini spread

Tabbouleh

Pureed beetroot dip with goats cheese and spring onion

Homemade granary loaf

*Main*

Mejadra

Vegetable samosas

Beef and leek meatballs with a yoghurt dip

Roasted cauliflower with apple and pomegranate seeds

*Sweet treats*

Orange and almond cake

Date and walnut slices

Flourless tahini cookies

We’re very excited to finally be able to show you our logo. To catch a glimpse of the evening and see the team in action scroll down!

Thank you to everyone who came and helped to make the evening such a great success.

IMG_9576A belated Happy New Year. 2013 has already arrived, what happened to 2012?! It’s been difficult trying to keep on top of Biscocho updates but that is a new year’s resolution and we hope to be more active as our plans for the future grow.

Biscocho ended the year on a real high! I’m a member of the Clapham Community Choir and we had our Christmas Carol Concert on 19 December at the beautiful St Paul’s Church , Clapham. Biscocho took on the challenge of feeding all the guests that were to attend this event and it was a great success. We prepped two days in advance in the kitchen at my new flat. A little on the snug side but we just about managed and stretched ourselves across the dining table aswell as every kitchen surface we could get our hands on. Mince pies, sausage rolls and shortbread were on the menu. We expected approximately 100 people and it was closer to 150. The food lasted about 5 seconds which we took as a great sign, especially when two guests said they were the best sausage rolls they’d ever had.

This year we plan on developing our menu, experimenting more and networking as much as possible. We’ve been very fortunate to have met some wonderful people who are enthusiastic about what we do and very supportive. We  now have our own Biscocho stamp which will soon be posted on our site and plastered all over the place. My mum also made us beautiful matching pinafores for Christmas from french vintage fabric so we look forward to modelling those at our next event.

Future supper clubs TBC. Please visit our Events page for updates or email us if you would like to know more about what we do and if you’d like to work with Biscocho. Besos

So….the past two months have been a little on the mad side. Pop and I have both had quite big career changes with very little notice period so we’ve been slightly preoccupied and abandoned our website a little. On top of that the family flat I live in has been sold (very last minute decision) and I’ll be moving to Clapham South in December. Somehow everything has fallen into place nicely though. It’s a little surreal to say the least.

We’ve managed to hold one supper club each month so we’re making good progress. My living room has been filled with family and friends munching on whatever has made it out of the kitchen successfully ( hummus is definitely a constant disaster therefore banished from our menus). And Biscocho has been on our minds a lot over the last couple of weeks as we hope to move things forward and work more on our branding and marketing.

As I am soon to move homes we’ve decided to host one final supper club in the flat with a belated Halloween theme. This time we’re focusing on attention to detail and how well we can present our menu. Beetroot and carrots will be used heavily aswell as pumpkin and squid ink being thrown in there. It’s going to be interesting. It’s going to be fun. It’s going to be the last supper in a flat that has been good to us and squeezed in many hungry guests. Hosting dinners in a new flat however will be exciting. Hopefully we will have a kitchen that can fit us both in without us elbowing each other constantly. Lots of new challenges for us both to face but change is always good.

Biscocho hosted its second supper club last Sunday after popular demand from friends for more scrumptious tasters and the success of our first dinner.

We welcomed a group of 12 friends with Pimms, complimented with luscious strawberry ice cubes, and kicked of proceedings with a tangy mackerel pate and daring butter bean hummus. I say daring, because – if you’ve read about our first butter bean experience – you’ll know why!

Mains included our staples – artichoke, potato and anchovy pithivier and ricotta and zucchini cheesecake – and a few experimental dishes including feta and pumpkin muffins, chorizo and feta quinoa salad and red cabbage coleslaw.

To sweeten the evening we served some incredible tahini and almond biscuits (you can tell I’m not biased – they were my favourite food of the night), some Earl Grey cupcakes and a monstrous honey and beer cake.

Good music and excellent company made for a fun, relaxing evening and everyone left with full bellies and a smile.

Thank you all for coming! We will post details of our next event soon…

On Sunday 20 May Biscocho held their first bake sale at a charity gig in North London. All proceeds from the event went to Kids Company; an organisation that works with vulnerable children and young people.

Doing it for the Kids 2012, organised by XETH Creative Arts, raised £750 and we were very proud to support the event. The whole night was a huge success and Shannon Mills recorded the night so beautifully. Here is a selection of her photos. More photos can be found on Flickr.
