Itinerant Indian - Friday 11th Feb

I could write a load of whatnot but I thought I'd paste the review below, which says it all. I'll be cooking the exact same menu.
I was lucky enough to be a guest at one of the Parkholme Supper Club evenings, when Alicia, the hostess, whirled up a really impressive range of curries. I have been a restaurant critic for years, and the dinner we were served was good enough to rival all but the best restaurants of that genre. Moreover, the dishes looked beautiful, arrived on time and were very generous. My fellow diners, a mixed bag of journalists, musicians, property developers and City folk made for top class conversation - all in all, it was unexpectedly one of my most enjoyable dining experiences in the last year.
Reading through the blurb afterwards, I found something to make the evening even more impressive still - Alicia manages to produce this quality food on a regular basis at a price of £5 a head, with all the rest of the money donated to MSF. Based on my experience, Parkholme Supper Club delivers a double feel good whammy - having a really good time while raising money for a really good cause.
