POSSESSED N1 & THE FISHERMAN'S PRESENTS AN EVENING AT THE TAVERNA CIRCA 1950
27TH & 28TH MARCH, £45 P/P

Our new pop up event is now all arranged in collaboration with Mariana a Moro chef who was born in Crete and grew up working in her parents restaurant – her father is a well known character and fisherman, and her glamourous Scottish mother Nancy ran the floor with flamboyance and charm!

We are hoping to recreate a little bit of Crete in our small shop, most of the ingredients for the menu are sourced directly from Crete. The recipes are from typical dishes that Mariana learnt to cook as a child and were served in local tavernas and homes alike.

We are planning to recreate a 1950s evening at a taverna down to the linen, 1950s Greek music and 1950s Greek films shown silently on our ceiling to evoke a sense of that era. I asked Marianna to write a piece about how she felt about food, learning to cook and her forthcoming adventure with Possessed N1 here it is:

"Everything happens around the kitchen table. The main spot
 
for large family gatherings, for laughter, for fights, and of course 
 
for gossiping. Eating was the fuel for all these incredible human 
 
interactions and this fuel was of great importance. If the food was 
 
not good none of the above would take place.
 
 
I was brought up in small neighbourhood in Chania on the island of 
 
Crete. I spent most of my childhood evenings in our family seafood 
 
restaurant. Often not playing hide and seek with the other children 
 
that happened to be there, but usually peeling a sack of potatoes 
 
or gutting fish. 
 
 
Fish. The love of my life. After all I am a fisherman’s daughter.
 
By day I would go around with my blue notebook and write down 
 
all the incredible recipes I would like to prepare for my family. The 
 
wisdom of the grannies was handed over. 
 
That’s how it all began."
 
 
JOIN US 27TH & 28TH MARCH @ 7.30PM
TICKETS ON SALE NOW £45 P/P 
 
Feel free to bring wine of your choice
 
Please email me tania@possessedn1.com or call 07740285544 to reserve a place.

Moro Guests at Possessed N1’s Dinner Club 
A festive supper with just a hint of Almodovar…

 
Shopping for Christmas needn’t leave you on the verge of a nervous breakdown! For two nights only – 4th and 5th December – favourite London restaurant, Moro, is guesting at north London vintage emporium, Possessed N1, to create an alternative festive supper club experience where delicious food meets glamorous shopping.

Celebrating all things bright, beautiful, and bountiful, these glamorous supper soirées will be a nod to the food of Spain and the kitsch and glamour of Pedro Almodovar’s movies, offering up a delicious four course supper in the unique setting of Tania Rowling’s shop, nestled in Islington’s famous Chapel Market.

Moro’s bejewelled dishes will be served at themed tables, dressed with 50s and 60s crockery and objets, in Rowling’s shop-come-home; what could be more satisfying than Chestnut and Chorizo Soup in a Midwinter bowl, flanked by a porcelain bull?! 
 
Sated by dishes including: Sea Bass Ceviche with Seville Orange and Cumin; Duck Fattee; Chickpea Pilav and Pistachios; and Moro’s classic Sherry Trifle, diners will be surrounded by a cornucopia of one-off gifts, all available for purchase: ladies’ and gents’ apparel that wouldn’t be out of place in Almodovar’s Volver; vintage ladies’ scarves emblazoned with matadors and flamenco dancers of a bygone era; and period cocktail shakers and glasses, perfect for the festive season – all available to try and purchase between courses.
 
Dinner will be cooked by Samantha and Samuel Clark and the evening will be hosted by Tania Rowlings.

Bookings
Tickets £50.00 each and include a four course dinner and a complimentary glass of Pomegranate Cava.  
Wine will be available for purchase on the night.
 
Tickets are available from Possessed N1 via email: Tania@possessedn1.com
