What does May taste like? Goat’s cheese fresh from the farm, edible flowers and the first blush of strawberries — according to João Lourenço and Laura-Ximena Villanueva Guerra, at least. In March 2017, the duo launched a monthly supper club to celebrate the best local produce available at any given time of year. Sure, you can find pre-ripened avocados all year round in Berlin — but shouldn’t we be focusing on nature’s seasonal offerings instead? Chef João (Grill Royal and The Store at Soho House) und cook / confectioner Laura (The Store at Soho House and Tausendsünd) have set out to remind us that true superfood is closer to our doorsteps than we think: blueberries instead of goji berries, parsnip not papaya. All organic, naturally. And regional. At this supper club, by the time dessert arrives at the table, you feel like your fellow guests are old friends. (Text: Anja Martin / Photos: An Introduction To)
