SLIPPERY SPOON IS A CONCEPTUAL POP-UP DINING EVENT THAT TAKES PLACE ONCE EVERY MONTH

No two events are the alike and diners can look forward to a swashbuckling affair of epic proportions that takes no prisoners and leaves a delicious trail of culinary wonder in its wake.

Concepts

Our Johnny is quite the conceptual fellow and doesn’t let a single opportunity to stretch his creative muscles slip through his fingers. He draws inspiration from the strangest of places – think fairy tales, nature, music videos, his grandmother’s kitchen, far-flung exotic locations and even the Bible.

Menus

Each Slippery Spoon menu is completely unique and inspired by the theme of the night. Get ready to be amazed as Johnny challenges the norm to bring you a variety of taste sensations. Beverages will be on sale at a cash bar or via Snapscan.

Destinations

Much thought and research goes into choosing each unique Slippery Spoon event/dinner destination. Depending on the theme of the night, you may end up dining on a rooftop, in a field, at the bottom of a quarry or the banks of a river.

The dinner included a four course meal with canapés and sparkling wine on arrival. The main course consisted of slow braised pork belly, a cauliflower & white chocolate puree, cauliflower florets, pomme puree, a popcorn & pork crackling crumble and cider chutney.  Dinner was served on the Not Ham But Man ceramic range which will be available shortly from our online shop.

Food & Ceramics Dinner

The launch of the Not Ham But Man ceramics range was celebrated at the Mervyn Gers studio in Cape Town during the month of May. The range (conceptualised by Johnny and created by Mervyn) served as inspiration for the menu, which featured a contemporary take on food that would traditionally be served in ceramics, including home made bread served with sesame-and-soy butter and a canapé of roasted cauliflower, warm brie and saffron syrup.

Diners also enjoyed steak tartare with confitted egg yolk, a contemporary moussaka and re-imagined fish pie. The Not Ham But Man ceramics range, which features Johnny’s distinctive wishbone logo, will be available for purchase from our online store soon. Don’t miss the launch!
