Kensington cookshop Divertimenti hosted a Supper Clubs with celebrity Ulrika Jonnson last week. Reflecting her Swedish and UK background, the TV star cooked up a ‘Swenglish’ menu for 42 guests. Ulrika showed her culinary credentials to the nation two years ago when reaching the finals of Celebrity MasterChef in 2017.
Following appetisers, Ulrika served up pickled salmon, fennel, new potatoes, dill mayo with homemade Swedish Vortbrod; followed by braised ox cheeks with mash, lingonberries and Jerusalem artichoke chips; and finally clementine ice cream, Swedish brown bread ice cream, chocolate brownie and liquorice caramel.
A gingerbread house, handmade by Ulrika and auctioned for charity, fetched over £200 on the night. Speaking after the event, Divertimenti’s owner, Ben Phillips said: ”Ulrika’s first supper club was a huge success and ably supported by the Divertimenti team; a great time was had by all.”
Urika returns to Divertimenti for a second sell-out supper club this week.
