Hosted by SUITCASE Magazine and The Ned

The Taste Issue is landing soon… so to celebrate the winter 2019 issue, SUITCASE Magazine invites you to join us in London for a Cretan feast on 2 December with Morito Hackney Road’s Head Chef, Marianna Leivaditaki.

The winter 2019 issue of SUITCASE is an epicurean grand tour of wild shorelines, low-key city neighbourhoods and sun-soaked islands the world over, including the fertile soils of Crete. Cretan-born chef Marianna Leivaditaki took us back to her homeland for a nostalgic tour of the sights and smells of Cretan cooking, seeking inspiration for the pages of her forthcoming cookbook.

Guests of our Cretan supper club will experience a snippet of Crete in the City of London, with a welcome drink and three celebratory courses cooked by Marianna and inspired by the pages of her story. The sumptuous settings of The Parlour downstairs at The Ned will provide the backdrop for a night of feasting and all guests will also receive a copy of The Taste Issue to take home.

Tickets are limited, so secure your spot now below (please have your card details to hand) and we’ll see you there.
