Hey friends! We're Abi & Rach, two best pals cooking, eating and drinking their way around London and Brighton. Three years ago we started our supper club 'The Pickled Pear' (because yes, we're a pair that like to get a little pickled). We started the Pickled Pear to feed and entertain our friends and pretty quickly, strangers.
One half of us is vegetarian so we have a large focus on feeding our fellow veggies and vegans, but we're also here for the sustainably sourced meat and fish too. We host pop-up supper clubs in a variety of venues but also provide bespoke catering and events services for private gatherings. We've been known to dabble in deliveries too.
Check out our 'Book Now' page for our upcoming events and pop us an email if you've got any questions or would like to make a booking enquiry.
MEET THE TEAM
Events planner and all round chief organiser, Abi is well versed in the art of curating beautiful spaces. With her professional career rooted in planning and co-ordinating events and weddings, she is always able to bring people together and design a memorable evening. When she's not planning someone else's event, she's hosting for friends at her home in Herne Hill. Her mantra: there's nothing a bowl of spiced cashews and a dry martini can't fix. You'll also probably find Abi in the closest antiques market or car boot - the Pickled Pear's aesthetic really comes down to hours of Abi tirelessly rummaging through piles of unwanted crockery and tableware, often purchasing under the guise of "it's for the supper club". Warm hearted, high spirited and thoughtful, Abi is a special soul with a hand painted greetings card for every occasion and freshly baked goods when you need them most.
With her 9-5 as a commercial lawyer, Rach is not one to ever step into the slow lane. She brings relentless energy and tireless ambition to The Pickled Pear kitchen and is the creative mind behind our menu design. Born and raised in South Wales and recently relocating to Brighton, Rach is a vocal champion of local, seasonal and sustainable produce, and has a particular focus in creating veggie dishes that are just as delicious as their meat based alternatives. She is a passionate believer that the humble vegetable often has more flavour and can be just as perfect when given the right attention. Her first love is food, her second hosting and her third is telling Abi what new food trend or natural wine has “changed her life”. A collector of cookbooks, tablecloths and retro glassware, some might say she is born to host. We would, of course, emphatically agree.
