I am proud to announce that I will be taking over the kitchen at the brilliant Dusty Knuckle Pizza on the 2nd of July to bring you a very special supper club!
Dusty Knuckle have regularly been cited as one of the best pizzerias in the UK. Most notably by the Guardian Newspaper and in the definitive guide of the worlds best pizzas by Phaidon. It also happens to be my happy place!
Debs and Phill are the driving force behind it and it is their sheer determination, vision, passion and hard work that has made Dusty Knuckle a firm favourite of the Cardiff food scene.
Their pizzeria is a hidden gem in the the true sense of the word. Tucked away from the busy streets of Canton, Cardiff they have created an oasis in an urban dessert. From the minute you walk though the archway there is atmosphere, the distinctive smell of the wood burning oven and some of the best pizzas I have ever eaten. In this former non-space they have created something very special.
Ever since I finished on Master Chef and was planning my first few events I wanted to do something here and I'm so glad I got my wish as what I have in store for you in my eyes will be even better served in this amazing place.
The set price (£20) three course menu is as follows:
Baba ganoush; smoky aubergine with a killer garlic hit served up with home made flat breads to get the appetite going. Lamb kebabs; my homage to this household favourite! Welsh lamb shoulder cooked over night, shredded then crisped up in the wood burning oven! Served with mint yogurt, pickled red onions and my home made chilli sauce. For the paneer version the cheese is crisped up in a spiced semolina coating and served exactly the same as the lamb version. Lastly the papaya sorbet; part of my trio of desserts I produced in the first round of knock out week on Master Chef and inspired by my up bringing in Nairobi Kenya.
There will be local beers on tap and a range of natural wines to purchase. I will be hosting two sittings one at 5.30pm for two hours followed by another sitting at 8pm. After dinner no need to rush off as there is a chill out area to have a few more drinks and kick back (hopefully in some summer sun!).
I had a blast putting this menu together! I hope you enjoy it as much as I do! It's fun but packs in the flavour! I hope you can make it!

I'd also like to take this opportunity to announce I will be working with Hybu Cig Cymru - Meat Promotion Wales at the Royal Welsh Show! How awesome is that! I will be highlighting and showcasing Welsh lamb at one of the biggest agricultural events in the UK! Hence the lamb used in the lamb kebabs will be nothing but the finest Welsh PGI (Protected Geographical Indication) Lamb.
I am honoured to be on board with HCC and can't wait for the Royal Welsh Show! More details to follow soon!
